Weekend Wanderings – The Road to Marysville
Recently a friend of mine asked if I was interested in going through the Black Spur and see if we could find some places to take photos. It looks stunning when you drive through it, but there aren’t many places to stop. We found a couple of places, but there really weren’t that many places to stop. We looked around one spot and went for a short walk.
We got there very early in the morning, so we were treated to some beautiful morning light as it made it way through the trees. It was a gorgeous morning. I love how places like this are always so green and you can feel the moisture in the air.
Once we realised that we wouldn’t be able to take photos like we thought we decided to head to Marysville. We thought we would see if the road to the waterfalls was open, Lady Talbot Drive, but it is still closed. It is really annoying. So went looking for Steavenson’s Falls again.
I did a black and white image of this recently for MM, but I did take lots of other images and thought it would be a good time to share them. It is a big waterfall, and you can walk all the way to the top, and follow it down to the bottom. We didn’t do that, we just did some of the more popular spots. Getting there early in the morning meant the sun wasn’t on it, we could get more blurred water, but the best part was, we were the only ones there, brilliant.
As we were walking back after photographing the waterfall I put the Tamron 90mm Macro lens back on my camera and tried to get some macro shots of the flowers we kept seeing. I got some, but the sun was on lots of them and it wasn’t easy.
It was a lovely way to spend the morning and I was home by lunch time, even better. I have more photos for you and will add a gallery at the end. I hope you are having a relaxing weekend, mine is certainly going that way.
