Forest Giants

ImageTried for a couple of mornings to capture a scene that I’ve had my eye on for a while. The forest is lush at the moment with a few years of decent and consistant rains. A beautiful scene as the sun appeared over the horizon hitting the forest behind. Only problem, leeches. After every shot the little bastards had to be flicked off the boots and socks were tucked into the strides….luckily no fashion police to be seen.

Mirror Bridge

These magnificent gardens are a great place to explore. Whilst I was taken this scene, my two boys were running around, across and through the various bridges, steps and paths. The simple things really.


Paddock of Gold

Noticed a build up of storm clouds out the back of my place so headed out for a bit of a look. Ended up down a dirt track that I’d never been down before trying to get a good look at a passing storm when I eyeballed this scene and promtly ran across the paddock before the light faded and rain hit

 


Stormy Ridge

Another Friday night storm, love them. Great build up, then massive downpour, then calm. Unfortunately during this time I was stuck in the office but I noticed whilst cooking the barby that there might be another one on the horizon so in no real rush headed out to a ridge that I hadn’t tried before after an intuitive drive through some of the back roads of the southern Dandenongs. Came across this scene and waited for a bit, was happy with it, then the sun started filtering through lighting up the scene so fired off another round, happier again.


The Valley

Giving a wider perspective on the previous post, had to process this up as the mist patterns in the foreground with glimpses of forest drew me into the image reiterating what a morning it was and how lucky I am to live in the hills, until getting to work that is……


Mystic

Taken this morning looking down over the Yarra Valley on an absolute corker of a morning,  2 degs as the fog hung low in the valley creating islands of mist.


Long Shadow

Noticed this as a potential image for a few years but only this morning with the sun in the right spot did I decide to give it a crack
