Photography has been a hobby of mine for almost five years now once I got my Nikon D-40 for my 21st birthday. This hobby has become a staple of my holidays since my family is into taking rigorous walks in National Parks and State Reserves to various Lookout Points and I regularly attended the photo camps held by my camera club. So I figured I might share some of my favourite snaps from 2010.
This photograph was obtained after walking the 6 km Dove Lake circuit in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. A goal definitely worth attaining after sore legs since a 10 minute walk would have sufficed from the other direction.
This was taken during a camp trip to the Yarra Valley. The flight of stairs and then the additional track to the lookout point is recommended for the view from above. Just be fit or you’ll be panting.
After being treated to a wine tasting, I explored Yering Winery. This view from their expansive balcony large enough to hold over a hundred people caught my attention because of the stunning colours.
Wildlife photography is something I usually shy away from because my basic lens cannot do it justice. However this dingo was so cute I couldn’t resist. Given their appearance, it is hard to believe these are wild dogs.
This picture appears very generic thanks to the countless reproductions of scenery taken from the drive on Great Ocean Road. However this picture I took during the Easter photo club camp appeals to me as one of my best.
During the return trip from our April vacation, we had a stopover in Mt Gambier. After waking up at sunrise we went on a walk around the perimeters of Blue Lake. What’s one night of missed beauty sleep for a view like this?
This lovely expanse of ocean was the view from my hotel balcony on Easter Sunday. Located in the South Australian seaside town of Glenelg, this beach is a great sight to behold.
This was a day I was particularly thankful for good weather because the 3 hour walk to Wineglass Bay is not what anyone would dismiss as easy. Though if you feel able to handle it , some great photo opportunities abound.
I was feeling far too cold and wet to go down to the bottom of the falls and at 6.30 pm on a cold autumn day, it was not really enticing. But I love the contrast between the waterfall and surrounding foliage.
This photo is of Victor Harbour in the Fleurieu Peninsula on the way to Adelaide and this causeway is the route the horse-drawn tram uses to carry passengers from the mainland to Granite Island.
