Up Before the Birds and Catching up
This last week hasn’t been any different to others. It is all go, but that isn’t a bad thing. I like being busy, it is really nice. I’ve also had a wonderful opportunity to meet some bloggers, which is always lovely.
I have just discovered that I can transfer all my followers to the blog on my website. I am unsure about doing this, but it seems like a logical thing to do. It is easy for you and for me. You won’t get email updates on what I’m doing unless you sign up for that, but my posts would still appear in the reader.
I haven’t made a decision about it yet, but would like to hear what you think about it. If I decide to do it it will be in a few months.
The trip is really happening. Yesterday we booked all our accommodation and I’m so excited about going. The trip is affordable, and I think the idea of going in winter is really in our favour. We have been finding deals all over the place. We can’t believe that we got 11 nights accommodation for under a thousand dollars each. As far as I am concerned that is brilliant. Now we can do a couple of things that we weren’t sure about.
It is going to be interesting photographing Tassie in winter. I’m hoping for lots of moody images. Being able to take my car is good too.
I am heading back up there and my posts this week will be from there. I am really looking forward to getting back. One to see my mum, I love seeing her. Then the second reason because I have some shots I really want to get while I’m there.
I am hoping to get to Lake Albacutya again. It has been a year and a half since I was there and I am curious to see how it looks now.
The pink lakes are also on the list. I want to see if I can do some new photos. They are always a challenge.
I am taking my ND Filters with me and I have plans for many long exposures. The weather is looking cloudy, so perfect for what I would like to do. I can’t wait to start.
I’ve met a couple of people this last week which has been great. I had coffee with one the other day and then yesterday morning I went out with another one, Janice Meyers Foreman from Canada. I had to get up very early to meet her in the city, hoping for a sunrise, but the cloud cover was too thick. We got some lovely shots of the blue hour before dawn and as the light appeared. The sad thing was that as the day dawned it was a rather grey and uninspiring one.It was great meeting Janice and I hope she enjoys her time in Melbourne.
As you can guess the photos are from the morning. I did something I haven’t done in a long time, I converted them into HDR images in Lightroom. I had to do some reworking in Photoshop for some of them, but it was fun to see what I could get. The very calm reflective river was great to capture the early morning lights into as well. I hope you enjoy them and are having a great weekend.
