Weekend Wanderings – Revisiting Aireys Inlet
This past week has been busy and I haven’t been able to get out and take photos, well not the type of photos that I normally do for these posts. I thought I would do another post on looking back at some older images.
It is almost two years since I first went away with a couple of my friends for a photography weekend and we have been away quite a few times since. We are going away again in about 3 weeks, back to Barwon Heads, Ocean Grove, so I thought it was appropriate today to have a look at some photos from the first trip and a subsequent trip we took there. We have been to Aireys Inlet twice now.
One of the nice things about Aireys Inlet is that it is only about a 2 hour drive from Melbourne so you don’t have to stay there if you just want to take a few photos. Though staying is good, and you can go to many surrounding places as well.
The lighthouse is one of the highlights here, and like many lighthouses you can see it in all different directions. This lighthouse is quite different to many along the coast, you can actually get up close to it without having to pay money. Most that I have seen you can usually only see them from a distance and if you want to look up close to them, then you have pay some fee.
I was going to show the photos that I took the second time I went, but when I went back to look at them I was horrified to see that they were all HDR’s and not very good ones. I sincerely hope I have got a lot better at doing HDR’s since then. So I went back and just processed them as normal single shots.
It was nice to revisit the images I took. If you love the ocean then this part of the Great Ocean Road is fantastic. You often get to see the ocean in its very angry mood. I love the coast in winter, it really gives you something different.
Here is a gallery with lots more images for you. Some you might have seen before, and others you may not have.
I have my first client for my fine art portrait session this afternoon, hopefully it won’t rain. It should be a great experience. Enjoy your weekend.
