Image from late last year of one of the lakes in the Grampians at sunset. Just me and the frogs that have found voice again there that night
Taken in the Grampians when the wattles were at their finest contrasting against the black stumps of recent bushfire
Probably not a technically correct composition but is still one of my favourites from the trip. I’d spotted this location on a drive around the dirt tracks and creek crossings of the back tracks of the Grampians. Came back later in the afternoon not expecting much as it was cold, overcast and bloody windy. It was a bush bash to get to but spending some time alone on the cliff tops watching the ever changing moods of the shower fronts passing through was an awesome experience. The golden drifts in the image are the acacias in full flower, they are in abundance after a massive fire ripped through here five years ago. There is something about this place. Better settle down now, two posts in a day……
One for Mark (Mr Extreme) Stothard over in the west. Taken on the edge at a relatively unknown cascade in the Grampians after plenty of rain in the previous month. I had already taken a normal waterfall composition but then decided to climb up to this position for something different after thinking about where other photographers would position themselves. I reckon that Mark would have headed here first.
The first sunlight of the day lighting up the impressive rocky escarpments of the Grampians in western Victoria. A magnificent, albeit challenging place for landscape photography if you’ve never been. Plenty of spots away from the touristy lookouts and fenced off waterfalls as the next few posts will show. Truenorth Mark would be in his element here.
