It is part of a suite of volcanoes on the basalt plains of south west Victoria from 30,000 to several million years old. (When will the next one erupt?!)

Located 1 kilometre west of the township of Derrinallum, on the Hamilton Highway.

It is an easy one-hour drive from major regional centres of Geelong, Ballarat, Warrnambool and Hamilton, and a comfortable two-hour drive from Melbourne.

This is often the mountain used as a backdrop for astrolandscape on Instagram. The drive was a bit too long 2.5 hours from Warrnambool, Victoria.

Hopkins Waterfall Warrnambool in Cape Bridgewater for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/4/hopkins-waterfall-warrnambool-in-cape-bridgewater-for-water-h2o-thursday Hopkins Falls are set in lush dairy country. They make an ideal picnic, fishing and walking spot, with gas BBQs and toilets provided. For a few days in early summer each year, the falls are the scene for one of nature’s most extraordinary migrations, as short-finned eels negotiate the falls on their migration to and from their spawning grounds in the Coral Sea (3000 km away). 


The Hopkins River mouth (and Blue Hole) with its beautiful cliffs, rock formations and rock pools is a popular fishing spot. In late spring, short-finned eels can sometimes gather in huge numbers waiting for access to the sea on their journey to the Coral Sea. Just up from the river mouth, boating, water-skiing and swimming are possible. The National Trust-classified Proudfoots Boathouse is nearby. 

Hopkins Falls are the largest falls on the Hopkins River and are accessed by a sealed road 15 minutes north-east of Warrnambool. They are simply spectacular during winter when water plunges 12 metres over the dark basalt rocks, leaving mist trailing in the wind.
 

Picnic facilities and amazing views make the Hopkins Falls Reserve an ideal spot to relax and unwind, with lookouts in the carpark ensuring you don’t miss a piece of the view. Keep a look out for juvenile eels (elvers), which can sometimes be seen jumping up the rocky ledges of the falls. The Hopkins River is an important waterway for eels during the winter migration period.

Byaduk Cave, Cape Bridgewater for Water H2O Thursday and City Daily Photo Gallery "Medicine" https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/3/byaduk-cave-cape-bridgewater-for-water-h2o-thursday  

Mount Napier is the youngest volcano in the state of Victoria and last erupted 10,000 years ago, creating the magnificent state park around its base, and an intricate connection of tubes (referred to today as caves) below the surface. The largest of the Byaduk Caves measures 18 metres wide, 20 metres deep and 10 metres high.

 

There are many walking trails that interconnect the caves and visitors will be able to view stalactites, stalagmites, columns and ropy lava in the one cave open to the public, Harmans 1. Batwing bats call this cave home, and so visitors are advised to remain quiet whilst inside the caves.

Harmans 1 is a lava tube which has a flat roof and arched ceiling. There are a number of rocks to climb over to enter the cave, so this activity is not suitable for those with mobility issues. If planning to visit the Byaduk Caves, visitors should wear runners or hiking shoes, as the ground can get slippery. Make sure to bring a torch to explore the cave but ensure you do not shine your torch on the bats inside the cave, as this can disturb their hibernation during the winter months.

Tarragal Cave, Cape Brigewater, Victoria, Australia https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/3/tarragal-cave-cape-brigewater-victoria-australia  

The Tarragal Caves are a network of large limestone caves and rock shelters which overlook the Bridgewater Lakes near the towns of Tarragal and Cape Bridgewater in the Charles La Trobe and are near Discovery Bay Park. The caves were identified as important Aboriginal camping places early in the historic period and were excavated in the late 1970s by Harry Lorrandos revealing stratified deposits in the floor of 11,300 years old, along with shell midden deposits and earth ovens over 11,000 years old.

Located just off the Bridgewater Lakes Road, and accessible in part by walking track, the cave openings form a series of galleries with clear views across the surrounding landscape and lakes.

One of the caves extends underground for over 400 m (1,300 ft) and has a sinkhole opening to the surface so that there is a constant stream of air through the cave and rising up the hole. It is said that whenever Aboriginals approached this, they would a piece of wood into the hole to "propitiate the demon supposed to reside within its profound and mysterious depths."

Colonial administrator Charles La Trobe visited the site in 1845 and 1846, and had some of his men lower a rope ladder over the cliff so he could explore the caves. He also provided a detailed description in 1846, noting that "...the ‘natives’ referred to it as ‘Lubras’ Cave’" and that they "...knew the caverns well and ...had a superstitious dread of them, stating that the caverns below were inhabited by headless lubras". La Trobe noted that when they came to the point under the sink hole there was a large pile of timber, assumed to be the items thrown down by Aboriginals over the ages. They then set fire to the pile lighting up the cave "... and displayed a magnificent, vaulted chamber, bedecked with long glistening stalactites, and tenanted by vast numbers of bats, whose whirring, whizzing noise was probably that which the natives attributed to some supernatural being."

Tower Hill Volcano, Warrnambool for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/3/tower-hill-volcano-warrnambool-for-water-h2o-thursday Tower Hill is home to some of Australia's best loved wildlife. Emus, kangaroos, koalas, swans, ducks and blue wrens all live inside this magnificent dormant volcano near the Great Ocean Road. Walk across wetlands, craters and bushland and learn how the park was exploited by early settlers before being restored by volunteers.

Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve sits in a large volcanic crater. It is one of Victoria's most fascinating and significant geological formations. Volcanic cone-shaped hills rise from the lakes. It's a short detour from the Great Ocean Road and offers ample walking opportunities for people of all abilities – from easy boardwalks to scenic climbs.

Petrified Forest, Portland for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/3/petrified-forest-portland-for-water-h2o-thursday There are many conflicting theories on how the Petrified Forest was formed.

The most widely accepted theory was written by Dr. N.A. Boutakoff, (then Director of Geological Survey, Dept. of Minerals and Energy) in his book-“The Geology and Geomorphology of the Portland area”, published in 1963.

The theory is that there was once a forest of trees, probably Moonah (Melaleuca Lanceolata) which was eventually smothered by a large sand dune. Water seeping down through the sand formed a crust of sandstone on the outside of the tree trunks, gradually increasing in diameter. At the same time, the decaying organic matter of the trees produced an acid which dissolved the sandstone crust from the inside, thus pushing out the crust on a chemical front.

So from small trees grew large “petrified trunks”. They are not petrified wood, but sandstone and are of no value once removed from the site. Over the years they have suffered considerably at the hands of the so-called collectors, so please respect our fabulous natural attraction, and leave it there for others to appreciate. 

Petrified Forest, the name itself, creates more questions than it actually answers. Cape Bridgewater is well off the beaten path too, it’s all a little bit of mystery; you just have to see this one for yourself. Hollow tubes of limestone protrude from the cliff top, some towering over 3 metres tall. “Forest”, is indeed a fitting description given that they’ve sprouted randomly but appear in clusters. The closest comparison is stalagmites in a cave but it feels as though these belong on the surface of Mars or even the Moon. For some, these rock structures might be a little underwhelming but for others, their unique formations and science behind how they came to be is really fascinating. Regardless, they make for a very interesting photo, a phenomenon that most people will have never seen. Looking out to sea and back onto land you’ll see fur seals and wallabies that call Cape Bridgewater home. Blue Whales, the largest animal known to have ever existed also visits this coastline November-May. Perched high up on the cliffs, the Petrified Forest is one of the best lookout points to spot one.

Below is an article excerpt from The Age Newspaper: 

Chris Saunders, a young Gunditjmara man, stood with his feet washed by Portland Bay and asked for a short silence.

It was in acknowledgment of those who had gone, he said, their spirits transported far out across the bay to an island known to Indigenous people as Deen Maar, or Dhinmar, and to Europeans as Lady Julia Percy Island.

 

Plenty of spirits had taken leave from this very beach in Victoria’s far south-west.

Mr Saunders was standing on the land of his ancestors at a place called the Convincing Ground: the site of the first massacre in Victoria of Aboriginal people by Europeans.

An unknown number of Indigenous people were killed by whalers in 1833 or 1834 in a dispute about ownership of a beached whale.

The story was documented by Victoria’s Protector of Aborigines, George Augustus Robinson, after hearing of it in 1841 from one of the earliest white settlers in Portland, Edward Henty.

The whalers, Mr Henty had told him, had used their guns to “convince” the Aboriginal people that the whale was not theirs. By the time Mr Robinson heard the story, he recorded that just two young men from the entire clan that occupied the whaling ground remained alive.

But the truth lay ignored and covered up for more than a century and a half until modern historians turned their attention to it.

Knowledge of the atrocity, however, was passed down by the Gunditjmara, who fought development plans for the Convincing Ground in the 1990s and eventually gained traditional rights to the site.

Several years ago Mr Saunders, of nearby Heywood, began organising smoking ceremonies on the beach each January 26, a date he and his people call Invasion Day.

 

At first, only a handful of Indigenous people turned up.

But on Tuesday, almost 300 people attended – many of them from the local white population.

“At first, it was just family and elders,” Mr Saunders said.

“But now, it’s shifted to include the wider community, which we wanted to see all along.

“With things like this, with community discussions and so on, it shows the community’s mind is opening up.

“I don’t lecture or shove the stories at people. I’m asking people to do their own research to learn the truth.”

Rawleigh Cox said he had come to the ceremony to learn. He and his wife Emma had brought their two sons, Clayton, 11, and Mason, three, because they believed it was important that the next generation learn, too.

Mr Cox, who has spent all his life in the Portland district, said he had never been taught the Indigenous history, even though he was of Wurundjeri ancestry, and had never heard the dreaming story of Deen Maar before the smoking ceremony.

Earlier, a “secret” dawn ceremony was held at the beach for traditional owners.

Later in the morning, the Gunditjmara moved to Portland, where they held another smoking ceremony for the wider community at an area known as “the Ploughed Ground”.

The area is claimed to be the spot where the Henty family first ploughed the land, introducing farming to Victoria, and includes a memorial stone “in commemoration of the discovery of Portland Bay by Lt James Grant” in 1800.  Gunditjmarra Aboriginal site Budj Bim is considered one of the oldest aquaculture systems in the world. 

But Mr Saunders said it should also be acknowledged that the Gunditjmara had lived in the area for many thousands of years before Lieutenant Grant’s “discovery”, and not far out of town was evidence that his people had been farming long before the Hentys.

The Budj Bim landscape, about 40 kilometres north-east of Portland, is Australia’s latest UNESCO World Heritage site, chosen for its evidence of fish and eel farming dating back at least 6800 years – the world’s oldest aquaculture operation.

Only a 10-minute drive from Allansford near Warrnambool, this cove is easy to get to and has adequate parking. Really amazing views and as it is not as well known, the crowds are far less. We had the whole place to ourselves, and it was just perfect. 

This place is not a well-known spot in the region of Port Campbell. Quite unspoilt and isolated.

Bay of Islands, Peterborough, Great Ocean Road for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/2/bay-of-islands-peterborough-great-ocean-road-for-water-h2o-thursday The wild Southern Ocean has carved a stunning collection of rock stacks and sheltered bays with clifftop walks, scenic lookouts and small beach coves near Peterborough along the Great Ocean Road. Peterborough is a secret summer destination for many Victorian visitors escaping the busier sections of the Great Ocean Road to the east.

Bay of Islands beach on Boat Bay Road is one the best spots along the coastline to easily launch a sea kayak and explore the park.
Dogs are welcome on lead at Sandy Cove near Murnanes Bay, but need to kept well away from the area between the high tide marks and edge of the dunes that are home to Hooded Plovers’s nests.
The park’s small beaches are not patrolled. Parks Victoria does not recommend them for swimming.

As beaches and coasts are natural environments, you may encounter hazards. Follow our water safety advice to make sure your day out at Bay of Islands Coastal Park is a safe and enjoyable one.

These shots were taken while I was in Warrnambool for locum work.

Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/2/twelve-apostles-great-ocean-road-victoria-australia-for-water-h2o-thursday Limestone is a sedimentary rock. It forms in layers with the youngest rock closest to the surface. When you look at a cliff in this National Park you are looking at a vertical geological record of millions of years. 

Whilst the Port Campbell Limestone and the lower older calcareous clays (Gellibrand Marl) exposed in the lower layers range from 7 – 15 million years old, it is a common misconception that visitors are viewing an ancient seascape.

Current research and bathymetry indicate that at the end of the last ice age (18 000 years ago) the regional coastline would have been 70km south west of where it is today. With the ocean currently acting on the softer grey Port Campbell limestone there is a constant undermining of the younger, more brittle, yellow Port Campbell limestone that sits above it.

I really don't like this area as there are so many tourists stampeding on the board deck. However, I haven't visited this area for 20 years!

Loch Ard Gorge, Razorback rock and Tom & Eva, Great Ocean Road, Australia for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/1/loch-ard-gorge-great-ocean-road-australia-for-water-h2o-thursday Loch Ard Gorge is the site of the most famous shipwreck on the aptly named Shipwreck Coast. The Loch Ard ran aground crashing into Mutton Bird Island in 1878. The only two survivors Tom Pearce and Eva Carmichael managed to drag themselves to the safety of the beach inside Loch Ard Gorge. For a moment, these two tragic teenagers were the talk of the English-speaking world, which very much hoped they would marry (they did not). Walk along this sandy beach, dramatically closed in by towering sandstone cliffs. Explore several other short walks in this area including the cemetery where Tom and Eva’s less fortunate shipmates are buried.

A short walk from Loch Ard Gorge, Mutton Bird Island used to be called ‘The Sow’ back in the days when the Twelve Apostles were known as ‘The Sow and Piglets’. Every spring and summer the island is home to a noisy colony of Short-tailed Shearwaters (aka muttonbirds). Every day at dusk between October and April, these birds flock home to their burrows in their thousands, to feed hungry chicks. Experience this incredible natural event before heading to Port Campbell for dinner and an overnight stay.

Bay of Islands, Great Ocean Road for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2024/1/bay-of-islands-great-ocean-road-for-water-h2o-thursday  

Stretching out across 32 kilometres along the coast of Victoria between Peterborough and Warrnambool, it offers astounding ocean views and a collection of fascinating geological features.

While the beaches are accessible at certain points along this stretch of coastline, the most popular thing to do is admire the stunning sea views. Keep your eyes peeled for the colony of rare, black-faced cormorants. The Bay of Islands is home to the only marine cormorant nest in Victoria. You also have the chance to spot a variety of rare plant life, which includes the spectacular sun orchid and the delightfully scented spider orchid.

The area is traditionally Aboriginal, and the parkland is still owned by the Aboriginal people who have lived here for centuries. They still practice age-old traditions and maintain their strong connection to the land and water that occupies this part of the country. Nowadays, they work in conjunction with the local councils and government to ensure that the Bay of Islands is protected for generations to come. Understand the importance of the land to the Indigenous Australian community and learning about the history of the area can be done by taking heritage walks or reading the displays along the Great Ocean Road.

There are a total of three Bay of Islands along Victoria Coast. One located in Sorrento, Mornington Peninsula and the other two are off the coast of Great Ocean Road. I truly experimented various sorts of photography here. There are just too few good weathers to shoot. (Rainy days are just good for some angry clouds and brooding melancholy which is not exclusive to the region without visibility of the islands)

It will be a stint that allows me to photograph the west coast a lot more. However, there won't be much Asian food I can get in this part of Victoria. There is always pros and cons to every decision I took. 

Lake Tyrrell terrain is beautiful to look at. I really love the colours and the perspective from up there.

Heat wave for a week above 30 degrees. Then cold front hits us 4 degrees in the following week. This is impossible to know what to wear any day.

Joel does not like Bay of Islands. However, we enjoy the view when it is a high tide and sunny weather.

This is an area that requires extremely low tide less than 0.2 metres to walk into. After leaving the London Bridge carpark walking down the stairs, walking passing beyond the broken London Bridge, there is a small tunnel with iron gate. Going through the unlocked gate, one would exit a tunnel and a cave revealing a different beach where Sierra Navada rock lays.

 

Recently I spotted the article from the age about the shipwreck itself. I put a section of the story here. The story is written on my blogspot 1900: The Sierra Nevada sinks near Portsea; 23 lost

He had done a big poo in one of the water hole and peed at another that some visitors took a skinny dip in them as well. Well, truly organic experience for them.

Many detours due to unfinished roadwork. My Cruise control also repeatedly went down. The driving experience, shall I say the least, is not the best. At least the weekend photography time is great with low tide and clear sky. Well, the sky was too clear without clouds. Not great for landscape photographers.

Travelling around Mallee Region Victoria is no fun. Well, everyone has got to eat and pay the bills. This series is taken last weekend where Joel and I finally managed to get a shot this year. The dark cloud quickly came over just to ruin our night. There were two groups of photographers at the bottom of the hill. They were a bit brave to be down there which was rather hazardous to walk on with many rogue waves. These people intermittently lit the rocks with their torches ruining our long exposure at the top.

Apart from the long-distance drive to various workplaces in the state, there are more discovery on some two-faced people through some corridor conversations. Getting out taking nature photos are just much safer and simpler. Joel is working hard during weekdays. So I get to have my solo adventures when opportunity arises.

Lake Tyrrell was quite busy with any astrophotographers. Their torches ruin my shots frequently. Sigh... There happens to be aurora for the night too. Some luck for me!

Pulpit Rock Re-visit for Water H2O Thursday https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/9/pulpit-rock-re-visit-for-water-h2o-thursday Last weekend, the weather would have been perfect for astrophotography. But it was the period for supermoon which ruins the night for me. Then this lunar month is of ghost hell gate opening for the duration. Bad luck runs in a row. Sony FE 20-70mm f4 giving me bad diffractions during long exposure at the coast. The tide came back up quickly 2 hours earlier than the tide prediction on website as well. Quite a series of spooky events really.

There are no clouds whatsoever. So colour is lacking. Similar to my previous experience.

Total distance is 2.4 km long. The forest is very refreshing to stroll through. The air is so fresh. Water in the creek is also very clear. 

In an overcast day, it is the best condition to photograph falls and creek. Especially the water flow. The day turned out more rainy than previously thought, both Joel and I tripped along the creek in the mud. It was still a good day though.

Lake Boga night sky for Milkyway - Water H2O Thursday Event https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/8/lake-boga-night-sky-for-milkyway---water-h2o-thursday-event August is the month I had started fine dining with former colleagues and old mates in the last life. Not much of decent photography to note but plenty of street candid photography which I have uploaded to the gallery here. The abnormal weather pattern is slowly becoming episodic rain and storm here and there from persistent monsoon like havoc. 

I did a routine visit to Nyah West and spotted a clear sky on the evening. So I took a few shots when the temperature was -2 Celsius. Freezing.

Cape Woolamai Costal Walk to Pinnacles, Phillip Island https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/8/cape-woolamai-costal-walk-to-pinnacles-phillip-island There are three Pinnacles in Australia, one in Western Australia and two pinnacles in Victoria. The pinnacles in Phillip Island is where I often visit with Joel on Therapy Saturday for which it is a regular occasion for our common photography hobby. 

This is a sea cliff, so the tides are often strong and scary. Grassy areas atop the cliffs are rookeries for mutton birds which are protected species here. The footpads and the stairs are suffering from severe erosion issues that it may not be accessible in the future. There are many snake holes along the cliff face we climb down. I wonder if these snakes pose a danger in summer. 

From the car park, it is about 45 minute to walk to Cape Woolamai viewing platform. The first beach section is where one can photograph the surfers in the sea. In high tide, magic land is a section of rock platforms and sea shelves that render mini waterfalls by the tides. Durin the lockdown in Melbourne in 2020, I often come here for fresh air and relaxation. 

We visited this place again for the sake of getting different light.

Toorongo Waterfall, Noojee, Gippsland, Australia https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/8/toorongo-waterfall-noojee-gippsland-australia Toorongo waterfall has been a popular photographer's location for many years. I used to come here frequently since high school period. Even in the film era, I get good results in this location which is about 100km from east side of Melbourne, Victoria. 

In summer, there are plenty of mosquitoes and leeches that render the trips rather unpleasant. In winter, it is more friendly for us photographers since no one would be dipping in the creek or waterfall for cooling down blocking our views. 

There are amphitheatre falls and Toorongo waterfall. I prefer amphitheatre falls better than Toorongo fall because the aforementioned one is not all over the internet. There are many mini waterfall coming off the rocks in the creek along the track. I thoroughly enjoyed the walk.

Among the woods, there is no need to use ND filter. It is dark enough to do any long exposure shots. As usual, we have to pick on an overcast day so there are no shadows of trees falling into the creek we photograph becoming rather distracting.

Dai Gum San Garden in Bendigo for City Daily August Theme https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/7/dai-gum-san-garden-in-bendigo-for-city-daily-august-theme Dai Gum San Garden was under renovation since 2020. It was in a bad shape back then. The main entrance stated, "permanently closed".  I thought it was going to be developed into an apartment complex of some sort. 

 

It is actually completed when I saw Joel Bramley's posts on his website. I took one afternoon to give it a good click with the new sigma 17mm f4 lens. The lens vignettes badly. It is of a metallic build which is so good to hold in my hands. It does not show good colours though. Struggling in shadows too.

Lightscape at Royal Botanic Garden Melbourne https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/7/lightscape-at-royal-botanic-garden-melbourne Lightscape event has been popular in the past few years. I was not keen to visit due to concern of covid outbreaks. This year, I think it was good to visit since the weather has been so cold and rainy. 

As usual, there is no carparks in the location. The entrance is via the Remembrance shrine. Joel and I followed the pink trail which was certainly longer than the blue trail. The whole walk was about 2.3 km long. It was nice to explore the area and we tried to stay longer than we should given it took us a good 40 minutes to get a parking spot.

Bridgewater Bay Visit in a crappy weather with Joel https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/7/bridgewater-bay-visit-in-a-crappy-weather-with-joel Bridgewater Bay carpark only allows 2 cars maximum in the end of a no through road. Somehow Joel and I loved visiting this area a lot. Probably because of the rock arch in a distance provides a good backdrop for photography. 

However, I do not like the looks of the sand cliffs constantly dripping strings of sands downwards. It looks as if sandslide can happen any time. Yet, the path down to the beach is via the underside of the sand cliff. 

It is just so easy to come down here on the weekend from Melbourne. We are using this location as a therapy clinic.

Bendigo Electric Wonderland in Rosalind Park https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/7/bendigo-electric-wonderland-in-rosalind-park I know most of the readers do not believe in the hype of light up events around the world. They are not run on green power and the power consumption is not justifiable in the current climate debate. 

For a small rural town like Bendigo, any events to spice up the winter is a bless. I often got bored living in Bendigo as a migrant. Hence visiting Melbourne a lot regularly.

Rabbit Rock, Montfort Beach, Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/7/rabbit-rock-montfort-beach-mornington-peninsula-melbourne The weather has been more or less a hit and miss. Though stormy weather brings dramatic image, I still prefer a nice weather to venture out in the wilderness. It is not a job after all. 

Rabbit rock is a tricky spot to photograph. It can only be viewed from one angle in high tide. However, one must be standing in the sea to do so. There is yet a lot of sea caves unexplored by Joel and myself. Some great efforts from the recent trips.

I would include two photos for this event.

Climate effect on causing floodsClimate effect on causing floods This was a shot after the flood in Loddon Mallee Region of Victoria in 2022. The riverine flood has destroyed the livelihood in the remote communities.

"They are leaving because there is not enough oxygen for them to breathe in the river."

This is referring the crayfish escaping the Murray River in Swan Hill. 

 

 

Bridgewater Bay, Mornington PeninsulaBridgewater Bay, Mornington Peninsula This was the turbulent sea spotted recently. It is eroding the coastline so much that the beach is receding. 

 

Coastal erosion is the loss of coastal land due to the net removal of sediments or bedrocks from the shoreline. Slow onset type is happening along Victoria southern Coast.

GoldCoast sunset and night, South East Queensland https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/6/goldcoast-sunset-and-night-south-east-queensland Another week went by quickly, yesterday was winter's solstice. Time to write a post for the coming week on a cold rainy night. 

I have been to GoldCoast for a total of 5 times. This recent trip is probably the least disappointing one because I did not have to go to the theme parks. Most of the people I used to go with were only after these entertainment rides there. 

I mainly took sunsets and night light trails.

Night Light in Brisbane Queensland Australia https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/6/night-light-in-brisbane-queensland-australia Travelling with buddies is always fun. Big nights out drinking and hanging out sipping spicy Korean Soups was what we did. I had been to Brisbane many times but never had so much fun ever.

The past few weeks of work is definitely brain numbing.

Noosa, Queensland https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/6/noosa-queensland Now I have managed to lose 11kg since 6 months ago. I felt so much better too. The daily walking on top of non-stop working really leave me little time to process the photos from the trip last month. 

Originally my plan with Joel was to explore the entire Noosa National Park. Then the fickle weather brought rain on the first day we were to embark into this paradise. So the plan was improvised to visit the region around Noosa River instead.

The town is too built up for my liking. The shops are quite pretentious just like Byron Day. However, Noosa Heads is a good place to wait for sunset.

Yana Waingi, Swan Hill https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/5/yana-waingi-swan-hill Since the return of Taiwan trip, dust has yet to settle for me. I picked up a last-minute locum work for a friend in Swan Hill. I got back to intermittent fasting and keto diet only to get interrupted by mum's nagging. Health issues popped up again that my iron study is still on the decline. It is yet clear if this is a normal restoration of iron value by coming down from iron infusion 6 months ago.

Tomorrow, I have signed up a trip for medical conference. I decided to go early so I can explore the very city Brisbane better. This is a city I have visited quite a few times over the years. I did not actually explore it at all. What a bunch of wasted opportunities.

While I did zero photography in Swan Hill for 8 days, I was alerted my regular jogging spot was taken up for this light up events. I have to say the event is a success. The ticket is cheap too. Just the organisation of entrance could be better. Linking Corner of my world

3 week break in March was great. At least, I get to unwind. The wonderful treats and gorgeous food in Taiwan did not help with my waistline. Since return to OZ, I am trying hard to lose the weight again. Tons of work yet to follow up. Tons of unfinished house work and unpaid bills. Sigh ...

 

I notice a lot of people are switching to Nikon Gear for some reasons. I remembered in the older days that Canon and Nikon gears get thumb down the most. Now it seems to go backwards to canikon culture again. Funny about capitalism.

Well, it was an early Saturday morning wakeup call at 5 am. Taking 2-hour drive to joint a 6km queue to the airshow carpark. Then a human queue for 2km or so. Then the ticket inspector asked me to turn my phone screen down so he can scan the bar code with his crappy scanner. I then cannot bring the phone screen back to light again. Drama continued that both of us could not find the general admission area. By the time we found our area, the show already started in the sky.

A ton of unfinished work to do. A series of land tax bills, power bills and so on really get to me.

 

The trip to Geelong was from December period. The drive through Westgate bridge was a success given the holiday period. Otherwise it would be always a nightmare due to the congested traffic.

Princes Pier Sunset, Melbourne, Australia https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/1/princes-pier-sunset-melbourne-australia It has been a while since I have visited Princes Pier for another shot. The past 2 weeks have been hard limping on my right foot. Left foot is really out of action. Work is giving me a structured routine, so my idle mind stays still. 

Rabbit lunar new year is not a good year for me in Chinese astrology. So I will have to be extra mindful of unnecessary impulsivity in life.

Bridgewater Bay Reverie, Blairgowrie, Mornington Peninsula https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2023/1/bridgewater-bay-reverie-blairgowrie-mornington-peninsula This location is a popular instagram spot for photographers. I used to visit this location every weekend. However, the drizzling sand along the overhanging cliffs by the beach was becoming a concern for me. The cliffs could collapse any time. I did not want to be buried alive underneath it. 

Over the years, Joel and I suffer many sorts of musculoskeletal injuries at this location. This time, I had an avulsion tendon tear in my left ankle. It was bloody painful. The trip was nice though - I had my cardio workout here. I also ended up doing long exposure photos all day.

 

P.S. I got Sony A7RV for a good workout. No regret with the purchase.

I spoke to my friend Joel for ages. It was great to venture the regular photography location, so we were just relaxing in the gorgeous pre storm weather.

January Gallery – Photo Of The Year 2022 for City Daily Photo https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/12/january-gallery-photo-of-the-year-2022-for-city-daily-photo There are many photos that I win competitions in Australia. It is really hard to pick one that stands out. However, this shot is something I have never done before, and it works out well despite lack of lustre in natural scenery or nature elements. But it was a creative thing that ticked for me.

 

I am still working on call throughout New Year Eve weekend. It has been so busy.

Christmas night lights in Country Victoria, Australia https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/12/christmas-night-lights-in-country-victoria-australia There have been so many unexpected series of events affecting my health and family over the last few weeks. Fortunately, most scares turn out to be benign. However, mum is coming down with another covid infection. What a bummer. 

Near where I live for the last 10 years in Bendigo, Victoria. I am surprised to find so many wonderful Christmas lights minus the crowd. Some decorations are better than the famous Boulevard Avenue in Ivanhoe! 

Well, this is a short post as I am currently preparing for the long haul of Christmas and New Year work shift in Swan Hill

Pinnacles, Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/12/pinnacles-cape-woolamai-phillip-island This is a very iconic location for special rocks and rip waves in Phillip Island.

Most people took the trail on the cliff to reach the destination climbing down the steep slope illegally for the shot. 

My pals decide to do the hard way doing the coastal hike along the rocky shore. The hike proved to be challenging. I busted my feet and several camera gear. Even my tripod was smashed.

December Gallery – Luxury for City Daily Photo Theme https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/12/december-gallery-luxury-for-city-daily-photo-theme "Luxury" in my definition refers to good food. Food from different cultures. Food cooked in different ways. Dad was a chef that my life was filled with quests to try and taste food no matter where we travelled around the world. 

I realise that I have over 20,000 photos on food porns lol. This is really a bad news for me because I never thought to organise them in this website. 

I will post a few here.

Melbourne State library https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/11/melbourne-state-library Apology for infrequent posting here. Work got the best of me plus the unknown fatigue and insomnia destroyed me really.

Joel my friend got me to join Mastodon a new social media that is not owned by a corporate. It is seemingly a nicer environment actually. If you are keen, this is my link Mastodon

There are few attempts to do photography around the town. However, not much good is to be shared. 

The trials in State Library on patterns and perspective work out nicely.

"Soft" Theme for November City Daily Photo https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/11/-soft-theme-for-november-city-daily-photo To interpret this theme "Soft", it does take a bit of thinking. I am a little Asperger so I will read it as it is literally. Anything blurs like bokeh or misty foggy look. 

Youthful skin may be smooth and soft. Pictures of cotton wools perhaps. 

I think I will keep it as bokeh or narrow depth of field for now.

Alowyn Garden Wisteria Bloom, Melbourne, Australia https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/10/alowyn-garden-wisteria-bloom-melbourne-australia This month has been an eventful one this year. Floods and more floods. Suddenly I let for the next 4 months of work because of this too. People lost homes. People lost steady income as well.

 

Well, I get to spend a bit more time with mum in Melbourne. Yes, I am freer, but I struggle to live with the extra time. It feels like Covid lockdown is all over again except there is no government mandate for it. 

 

Alowyn garden wisteria bloom is quite late. Yet, fewer flowers too. I doubt there isn't enough fertilisers. It is just the weather I think.

 

I hope you enjoy the floral flavour of this post.

Bendigo Bloom Festival of Tulips and Light Up in Green Room https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/10/bendigo-bloom-festival-of-tulips-and-light-up-in-green-room It is the full moon. That would be the perfect explanation for an eventual week. First, water bomb floods many roads that render my regional work difficult. Then many of my photography trips get cancelled due to the weather and all. 

These tulip photos are something I do every year when Bendigo has this recurring festival. The good thing about it is that it is free! Unlike the Tessellar festival, I could go in any time I want. The number of Tulips is also decent too. The best thing about photographing tulips here is that there are way more interesting heritage buildings and sculptures for props or contexts.

The bloom is already finished but I will showcase some shots from this year.

OCTOBER THEME DAY – REST, SLEEP AND RELAXATION "Astrolandscape" https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/10/october-theme-day-rest-sleep-and-relaxation-astrolandscape This is the fun event I participate in City Daily Photo feature blog -> City Daily Photo Theme Day

For me, what relaxes me would have to be leisure travel whenever I am ever free from work. However, pandemic changes all that for many people including me. In the last three years, social distancing and the crazy lockdown allows me to learn Milkyway capture in the rural part of Victoria. 

Doing this type of photography relaxes me. Solo out in the desert or at the coast. Plenty of Zen time. 

Enjoy some of the astro-landscape photos I have in the series. They are works I have done over the past 2 years.

Luoyang, the old capital in Central China https://roentare.zenfolio.com/blog/2022/9/luoyang-the-old-capital-in-central-china Lately, I am revisiting my previous travel photos. One cannot believe how they can sit in the hard disc copies until they get lost eventually. 

Few years ago, prior to Pandemic, I used to travel three times a year internationally! 

Luoyang is an old ancient capital in China. In mandarin literature, it is where the water dragon rests deep in the ground. The best and the most luxurious are only available in this capital city. I went through all the photos I took from the days where digital cameras are not that well developed. But still, I love the memories from the shots.
