AUSSIEPICS

South Gipplsand, Winter 2012.


This is the result of a cruise with some friends one fine day about a week after some really heavy rains. Gippsland often looks it's best after a bit of a shower. South Gippsland is the wettest part of Gipplsand and runs up from the coast (Inverloch, The Prom, etc) into the Strzelecki Ranges. The first shots are the ruins Knox's Farm which has some historic significance, followed by this trestle bridge that sits beside the South Gippsland Highway. After this we moved onto Agnes Falls and the Windfarm up in the hills behind Toora and got some shots over the hills down to Port Welshpool with Wilsons Promontory over the other side of the water. We ended the outbound leg down at Port Welshpool and played at the piers with the fishermen, their boats and some seabirds.

It's a bit of a long page so just take your time, the light gets better and better all through the day.

Agnes Falls

Agnes Falls

Agnes falls is 59 meters (see link at the end of the page) however you'd need some serious abseiling and safety equipment to get to the right place to shoot that from. The best spot to shoot from is probably in mid-air, say about 50 meters off the ground so that the excitement at the top is in shot but the long fall to the pool can be captured in the same image. Instead, what I have is just a few shots at various exposure times, using fast shots to capture the energy and longer exposures to catch the flow.
