Weekend Wanderings – Banyule Morning
This morning I got up a little bit earlier to go out with a friend to see if we could photograph the sunrise over Banyule Flats. Well, we got there and we saw a little orange, but it was too overcast to get anything really. It was so disappointing.
It always seems to be the way when I go, I so rarely get a good sunrise or sunset. The above image was the best we got. I will just have to keep trying. I think the time of the year might be against me somewhat.
I took the big lens with me, with the intention of doing some birds as well, but the light was horrible and the birds move so fast, so the ISO had to be up so far, and even then, it wasn’t great. I will have to try again some other time when the sun actually comes up and shines. So I apologise for the bird photos, but I had to show them, hopefully I will get better at doing them.
We ended up leaving and going to another part of the park and just walked around, tried to take some winter shots.
Winter has definitely arrived here, about time, though many trees are still losing their leaves. The bare trees do look nice, a different sky would have been nice.
Glimpses of spring are around though, with the wattle or acacia trees flowers. It is nice to see a different kind of colour.
I am going to put the above and some other images into a gallery for you. How is the area around where you live at the moment? Are you enjoying what it is offering?
