October 8, 2016 – Daylesford and District

Twelve participants enjoyed a couple of days in the Daylesford area.

The weather was at it’s best and the countryside around Daylesford and across to Clunes was excellent – emerald green with large patches of canola providing some wonderful contrast.

The Trentham Falls was a spectacular sight with all the recent rain – filled from side to side and plenty of cascading water.

March 28, 2016 – Lang Lang Rodeo

Fourteen members attended the Lang Lang Rodeo on Easter Monday.  It was an exciting day for spectators and riders and  it was a challenge photographically to get in a good spot near the fence and get the shutter to fire just at the exact split second of the horse or bull rearing or someone being thrown.

From all reports it seems that the members enjoyed the day and came away with great action shots of horses, bulls and cowboys, as well as an appreciation of the skill and determination (or madness) of the rodeo riders.

 January 15, 2016 – Night Photography at Docklands

This outing was attended by eighteen people.  Most enjoyed a pizza meal as the sun began to go down on a perfect summer’s day.

Unfortunately the sunset sky was not brilliant but this did not stop may images being captured at the twilight and when the man-made lights appeared.

Thanks to Pam Rixon and Margaret Walton for organising this successful outing, which seemed to enjoyed by all.

 

Below are a selection of images from the outing

November 14, 2015 – The Briars, Mount Martha

Twenty-seven people attended the club’s outing to the Briars.  The weather was not particularly kind to us but it seems that most, if not all, of us had an enjoyable social and photographic day together.

May 10, 2014 – Mount Macedon Autumn Day Trip

Sixteen of us defied the drizzly, cold day for the opportunity to see Macedon in full autumn colour.

The group met for morning tea at Centennial Gardens.

After a warming drink and some nourishment, the next stop was the 7 acre private gardens of  “Tieve Tara” at Mount Macedon. “Tieve Tara” is a magnificent garden, which combines majestic old trees, many interesting walks, a superb view to Mt Macedon and vast collection of plants and shrubs for all to appreciate.

The second garden visited was Forest Glade Gardens, a little further up the mountain road. Forest Glade is one of Australia’s finest private gardens, and has existed for nearly one hundred years.  The magnificent landscaped garden covers 5.6 hectares.

Lunch for most was taken at Stanley Park off Mt Macedon Road.  A couple of hours of food and fellowship before some members drove to the top of the mountain and imagined the view through the heavy fog and, for some, the sudden downpour of rain!

December 7, 2013 – Gulf Station

Approximately 40 Club Members attended the outing to Gulf Station historic property near Yarra Glen in the Yarra Valley.

Excellent weather and a very interesting venue ensured a most enjoyable outing with many, many images being taken.

After the visit, most participants adjourned to the nearby Chocolatier and/or Yarra Glen park for some lunch, coffee, chocolates and/or ice-cream.  Afterwards, some went on the the Russell Drysdale painting exhibition at Tarrawarra Winery and art museum.

May 6, 2013 – Lake Goldsmith and Ballarat

Twenty-one members attended the Lake Goldsmith Steam Rally and what an eye opener it was.

Set on farmland about 12 kilometres south of Beaufort, the Rally site is about 15 hectares of sheds and infrastructure filled with every Imaginable type of steam engine

from a bygone era.

Twenty-three members attended the dinner at the Ballarat Leagues Club including our guest Andrew Thomas who will be presenting to the Club in October.

Many members stayed on through the Sunday sampling the caffeine delights and photographic opportunities of the Ballarat district – including the imposing Andersons Mill

at Smeaton and the ever popular Lake Wendouree at daybreak.

October 26-28 – The Grampians and The Murtoa Stick Shed

Our visit to the Grampians was a great success with 24 Club members and friends making the trip on the Sunday to the “Stick Shed” at Murtoa.

We had a very friendly Club dinner on the Saturday night at the Horsham Community Sports Centre at which 17 members attended. Good food, good friendship and very convivial.

Our trip to Murtoa was only 30 minutes on a very fresh Sunday morning. It can get cold in the wheat belt even when the sun is up and bright!

The “Stick Shed” was all as described – in fact the previous photos on the net did not do justice to the sheer size of the building. It’s 250 metres long, 65 wide and, in the centre, 20metres high [but seems much higher] To think that 30 years ago they pulled down a similar adjacent building that was twice the size!

 

=====================================================================================================================

April 29, 2012 – The Alfred Nicholas Gardens, The Dandenongs

An excellent day and 23 members attended! 

The weather was fine and a good number managed to make their way right down to the lake at the Nicholas Gardens. Two only just managed to get back – it was very steep!
We enjoyed coffee and cake at Cloudehill where some stayed to look at the beautiful gardens and it was nice that everyone lunched at the Arboretum admiring the valley views.
