The city from a boat

This image is, from my day of sailing with Take It Easy, has been a hard one to do. The buildings were really flat and trying to get more detail into them and make them stand out was harder than I thought it would be. It is the problem, sometimes, with using a telephoto lens.

A Night at Docklands

A friend asked me if I wanted to go in and do some photos around Docklands last week. She loves night photography, and while I don’t mind it, I wouldn’t say I love it. Still it was a lovely night and not too cold. It is an interesting place to take photos. The most interesting architecture being built in Melbourne is mostly down there. It is a good place to look if you like architecture.

One of the main reasons I wanted to come to the east coast of Tasmania was to photograph a tree on a rock, seriously. There is a tree that grows from a rock in Binalong Bay and I’m sure it has been photographed thousands of times, but it didn’t matter, I still wanted to do.

The city of Melbourne is one of my favourite places to photograph. Though I am always trying to find new ways to do it, sometimes, I just you just have to go with it and see what I can get. I am understanding more and more what I want to do with my work, what I want to show.

Recently I had a day out at Trentham. It is a small town, but very nice and very quiet, almost laid back. It is close to another town Daylesford, which has a reputation for spas and relaxation. While Trentham isn’t quite the same it is still a lovely town and very relaxing as well.

The main reason we went was for Trentham Falls. It is quite amazing and is Victoria’s largest single drop waterfall.

Photographing waterfalls in bright sunlight is a nightmare and that is pretty much all we got. It was a bit annoying. Why are there never clouds when you want them? This waterfall has been photographed so much lately, I am almost sick of seeing it.

We headed into town for lunch after the waterfall. It is a quiet town and if you go during the week there are many places that will be closed.

After lunch we headed to the old train station.

We then headed back into town and saw this.

The Cosmopolitan Hotel, really is a throw bad to the past. We don’t see many pubs like this anymore. I mean check this out.

I’m sure the stables aren’t really for horses anymore, but who would’ve thought?

It is such a pretty town and one that is great to visit. It is a very popular place on the weekends as it is only a couple of hours from the city. It is very easy to go there for the day. There is a bakery that makes great bread, but there is always a long queue, so get there early.

I have some more photos of the train station and the hotel for you to look at now. We did photograph some other places, but I think these are enough for today.  I hope your weekend is going well.
