This weekend we finally organised that trip out to Bells Rapids, it’s been a long time in the making. It was a day of scampering down steep rocky hills, splashing about in waterfalls and enjoying this beautiful spring weather shining down on us. It was also a chance for me to try out my new Lee Filters. I don’t know why i didn’t have these magical pieces of glass a long time ago. For anyone that’s contemplating a set of grads… You won’t regret it. It was great to snap and chat and share a few laughs with Rich and Vanessa, i’m looking forward to our next little foray.
The last few months have seen me concentrating on my child photography and it’s been a while since my camera and i have breathed the fresh air of landscape photography. Half the fun of landscape photography is being out there, the road trip of travelling to wonderful places and soaking up the view, clambering over rocks all the time trying not to slip and accidentally hurl your bag off a cliff. That reminds me of a sunset session down at Benion Beach with Richard Barry and i chatting away when we notice his camera bag float past our feet with the ebb and flow of the tide! Thank god for waterproof bags. Photographing landscapes sure does leave you feeling real. They say that just witnessing a beautiful sight will make you live longer. I’m planning on going up to Bells Rapids soon with Rich to get some slow water shots so stay tuned.
