This morning it was an early start and a day trip to Trentham with the “L” plates on. If you go on the freeway it is only an hour and a half from Melbourne. It is a good drive for my daughter, and I think we are both starting to love Trentham, it is a great little place.
One place I wanted to check out was Trentham Falls. I have seen photos of it and they are great, but the reality was a little different.
It was running really fast, but you can’t really get near it. I was hoping that you could go down near the bottom, but there are signs everywhere telling you not to. Apparently people do, but they risk a lot as it is very steep. I don’t understand why Parks Victoria don’t build stairs to go further down and have viewing platforms further down. It is very hard to get images from above. I was told it would be easy to do, so I don’t know why they don’t do it, it is what everyone would like. Might have to try going back another time. This was the best image I got.
On a positive note, I found a fantastic place for Victorian Costumes today. There is a wonderful woman who has been collecting them since the 80′s and has the most amazing collection. She isn’t too expensive and I have to say, it is worth it just to go into her store, Mr Ed’s Victorian Emporium, near the Cosmopolitan Hotel. I am hoping to work with her on some for my photos. Thanks Kate, lovely meeting you today.
I did get some fine art images done and if you are on my facebook page then you will already have seen one of the images. I couldn’t wait to work on it.
