  • I Forgot my Snow Shoes!




    Yesterday's Camera Club outing was at Mt Buffalo, took loads of shots at Ladie's Bath Falls,
    a moderately easy 400 metre walk from the car park, and got lucky with three gorgeous Austrian babes!

    The blond asked me to take a picture of the three of them with her phone.
    I was perched on a slippery rock surrounded by water with a high risk of winding up in the ladies bath!
    I asked if her phone was waterproof, "Nein, nein!" she said and hastily - I took the shots and handed it back; she looked relieved!


    It is known as the Leviathan. This enormous monolith seems to be resting on a kind of pedestal of smaller rocks.
    It was really a job for a 6mm lens, but the best lens is the one you have with you, the SWD 12-60. pro


    In places there was little head room to walk beneath it and at one point I cracked my head. That explains a lot, doesn't it!


    This impressive landmark is called The Cathedral. I spotted a group of abseilers perched high on a ledge.
    I hung about for a bit hoping to see them in action, but gave up waiting.

    For a tighter shot with I switched to the 40-150mm F2.8 Pro + 14tc


    Well this was the end of the road, a kilometre return climb to the summit. As the sign hints, it is a gut gripping slog.


    The temperature was around 18C and hopefully I was able to burn a few calories as I need to lose weight!

    The scenery is pretty awesome and I took lots of pictures. Too many for one thread, I'll show you more in another thread later.

        Stunning landscape Mark. Nicely blurred water behind the lasses too. Glad you didn't take a dip with your gear.

          That’s a nice set of scapes. The Cathedral looks pretty spectacular.

            Andrew, I totally agree!

            Mark, aside from my snow shoes, I forgot my cossie.

            Phill, that thought was on my mind - I would not wish to put Oly's water resistant body to the test.

            Jason, Yes, it is pretty awesome as are many geological features on the mountain.
