Weekend Wanderings – Day Trips Around the Mallee
Normally when I go up to the Mallee I seem to photograph the same sort of things, but this last time, well I hardly took any of the usual photos. I was too busy photographing stars and then taking trips to see Pink Lakes. It was nice to be doing something different. I took photos of things that I have never photographed before.
My mum needed to go to Hopetoun and I thought it could be good to take some photos there. She wanted to go to the old Hopetoun Primary School. It is no longer a school for children, but groups around Hopetoun use the premises for things like quilting and historic societies. It is nice that the school has a new life beyond being closed.
These were the only photos I took in Woomelang. I had a feeling there might be a half decent sunset, so I headed down the road to in front of the old shearing shed. It was small, but it was a lovely sunset.
The wood for the ramp into the salt lake is really weird now. It is hard and how you would expect wood in some places, and in other places it is very soft and spongy. It made a great subject for the photos.
Here is a similar image to the one I used for the MMC8 the other day. I thought you might like seeing how the real scene was. It wasn’t that interesting. The sky didn’t look that great at that time.
Not long after that it was starting to look like this. How funny that I was taking sunset shots in the Murray Sunset National Park.
If you read yesterdays post then you know why I was at the Pink Lakes. I think I will just stop it here, if you see any images in the gallery that you think I should do more work on, let me know. Take care and have a great weekend, hope you get to do some wandering.
