Weekend Wanderings: Banyule Flats Through a Macro Lens

When I went down to Banyule Flats the other morning I spent a lot of time walking around with the Macro Lens.  I took so many photos and I am going to show them to you today.

I am not going to talk too much today, yesterday was full on.  I spent the day at Healesville Sanctuary, and lunch at a winery, and somewhere else after that, I took over one thousand photos, and I am tired, there will be a post soon on the day however. So I hope you don’t mind if I just leave you with a gallery today.  Stop by say hello.

  2. A beautiful, intimate look, Leanne. I love the leaves! 1000 photographs! Wow, no wonder you don’t want to type, your shutter finger must be fatigued along with the rest of you.

    • I love the leaves too, I like seeing them with the light coming through them. Yes, 1000, a big day for me, though I will have to delete a lot of them as they weren’t that great. My shoulder was very tired and sore by the end. Thanks Carrie.

  3. Lovely collection. I really like looking at nature close up! Reminds me that it is Autumn for you.

    • I do too, it is so different through a macro lens. I need to take the tripod with me I think, get better photos, ones where I’m not moving. Yes autumn is definitely here now, it is so colourful. thank you.

  13. It’s rewarding, but challenging to try and capture the spirit of a place with macro photography. I’m sure the subtlety of these shots reveals some of the true character of Banyule. Nice job.

    April 12, 2015
    • I think so too Ardys, really wonderful seeing the world through it. It is lovely seeing it this way. Thank you.

      April 12, 2015
  14. Beautiful macros. I also have a lot of photos of autumn leaves – I love the way they change colours from the outside in.

    April 12, 2015
    • Thank you Raewyn, how amazing do the autumn leaves look? I think I am addicted to photographing them. I love that too, so interesting to watch.

      April 12, 2015
  15. A lovely variety of flora for a single location. Well shot.

    April 12, 2015

  17. Wow, Leanne! May I enquire what camera and objective you used for these pics?

    April 12, 2015
    • Thank you, and of course you can, I use a Nikon D800 with a Nikkon 105mm macro lens. The objective was to show the macro view of the area near where I live and to show some of the autumn colours. I’m doing a book on the area, so I am trying to get as many photos as possible, all sorts of views.

      April 12, 2015
      • Thank you, Leanne, appreciate your information. I have been shopping around for my first new SLR, and I feel like a kid in a sweet store 🙂 as amateur wanting to go serieus. Will keep in touch and intrigued about your book. KR T

      • Oh so big decisions ahead. It is a big step. I don’t know that I would recommend my camera, might be better to work up to it. There are lots of great cameras out there for learning though. I would like that. 🙂

        April 12, 2015
  18. Always a pleasure to see your photos, Leanne! 🙂

    April 12, 2015

    April 12, 2015
    • I love that light, I really want to do more. Thank you Chris.

  20. Lovely images Leanne! Isn’t it amazing to shoot an area with a macro lens after shooting the same area as landscapes and see it completely different?

    • It is, the focus is so different, and you realize things you had before. It is wonderful. Thank you Tamara.

    That was a mega clicking day Leanne ! Can imagine the weariness , immense concentration is needed for such close work .What beauties here though . Really get the sense of moving softly into Autumn with these colours …

    April 16, 2015
    • It was, and you are right, I’m usually very tired when I’m done. We are certainly moving into it, which is lovely, love autumn. Thanks Poppytump.
