Tag: Cape Schanck

Cape Schanck is one of those places I’ve been to many times, but never at sunrise, however it is always a good place for weekend wanderings. A few years ago I spent the weekend in Sorrento with my friend Chris and on the first morning we were there we got up very early and headed to Cape Schanck. As I said, it isn’t a new place for me, but it is the only time I’ve done, or attempted, sunrise there.

It is that time of the week again and it has been a good week as I look back on what I’ve done. I’ve been away up in the Mallee again to visit my mother, but, as always, I managed to get out to take photos while I was there. It is such a different landscape up there, and I really enjoy getting out, though, it was rather hot and humid one of the days and it wasn’t so nice.

As I usually do I have some photos for you that I have had on Social Media this week, specifically Instagram. Some are from the city and some from up in the Mallee.

I’ve shown this image before, I did it last weekend. I like the image and had to put it up on Instagram.

I took this photo almost five years ago. I really didn’t like the way I processed them back then, so I thought I would try it again. It is something I think I might have to try doing some more.

I processed this image earlier in the year. It was a long exposure taken during the day. I manipulated it a lot to get the look I was after.

Another image from earlier in the year. The red rocks give such a gorgeous tone to the image. I like the creaminess of the water as well. This was taken down near Jan Juc on Victoria’s coastline.

I love my mum’s garden and it is great to get up there to take photos of the flowers and other things I find it in. I also like playing with the images to see what I can do with them.

This was in the last post that I did, so you don’t need me to talk about it again.

The landscape up there can be very stark. It can also be quite sad. Salt is a major problem and I like trying to capture the starkness of it.

Some more carnations that were in my mother’s garden only these ones were dead. They were definitely past their bloom. Dead flowers can make beautiful subjects for photos.

I think Instagram has been really good for me. Besides giving me more exposure, it is giving me a real push to start producing more fine art images. I have really enjoyed getting back to doing them and showing them to you.
