A wonderful workshop has just been completed on the Scenically beautiful Flinders Island. Eight participants enjoyed the great hospitality of our hosts Ken and Carolyn at Vistas Lodge. It was a delight to come back from an intensive day out shooting the Coastlines and mountains of this wild spectacular Island to then sit, unwind and relax over a glass of red (or two) Four Days of photographic delights and much energy was used in rock-hopping our way over to the perfect location for photography. The group went out on two early morning dawn starts with some amazing images taken.
We also walked into rainforest to see the lovely fern gullies and creeks, drove to two lookouts for sub alpine images and scrambled over countless huge pink granite boulders for the elusive shot!
As this Island lies on the Eastern side of Bass Strait it often gets winds from the South East. Though they don’t deter any determined photographer it is nice to have calm weather. I run workshops in late March and April for this very reason, as the weather is usually very stable…We were very fortunate that three of our days there was very little wind which made for pleasant forays indeed.The weather was kind and we had a superb mix of blue skies and passing clouds. At 40 degrees south we could photograph all day!
