3 Things That Improved Our Photography

Before & After 2It’s not hard to find lots of good information on the internet about how to improve your photography, and many of us take different journeys to get where we are going. We could write an exhaustive list of all the things you should do and know but it really boiled down to three main things that took us from there, the image on the left taken in October 2013 to here, on the right taken March 2015.  Continue reading

Thurra Dunes

WM Thurra 8Our recent trip to Croajingolong National Park in Victoria was a double barrelled mission. Other than the lighthouse we really wanted to find out more about the Thurra Dunes. I couldn’t find out much about how or why the dunes exist, so if you know please tell us! You’d think for such huge sand dunes they would dominate the landscape, but they are actually really well hidden. There are a few tantalising glimpses of them on the drive in but it’s not until you make the 2 kilometre trek to the top and see them laid out before you that you really get a sense of just how huge they are.

It does however present a unique photo opportunity with the rolling hills and almost moonscape feel. Continue reading

Home Is Where The Heart Is

WM Old BootWe haven’t had much opportunity to go camping so far this year, but there is still a lot of this year to go. This last weekend saw us at the markets taking a big gamble on the rain. And it was very wet. It went from being promised as the biggest and best market to the smallest with only the diehard stall holders, those with products that didn’t mind getting wet and us next to a lovely gentleman from Orbost with divine flowers. It was worth it though. Continue reading

Storm Chasing

WM Wrath of ThorIt’s been a very wet couple of weeks around here- not exactly ideal exploring the area on camping weekends kind of weather. But the weather conditions have brought their own rewards. We’ve had the BOM radar on almost constantly and we’ve been storm chasing. Except when there’s lightning. For those shots we stayed close to home because we have a great verandah with an amazing (and much safer) view.  Continue reading
