Over the holiday period we had a few days away.  We stayed at Port Albert, a small village which was once one of the colony of Victoria's busiest ports!

 

First stop on the way down was at Agnes Falls

Looked quite nice, but access was only to the top of the falls.

 

Another trip was to 90 Mile Beach.

This extends from just east of Port Albert all the way to Lakes Entrance - ironically, the opening of the channel at Lakes Entrance was one of the factors in the demise of Port Albert.

 

On our return trip, we spent a day at Wilson's Promontory.

Picnic Beach - Wilsons Promontory 

 

We walked along a series of such beaches - I could have kept going even further, but didn't have enough gear with me.

The detail in these photos is amazing, Chris. I would lift the shadows a bit though as they seem a bit dark on my monitors (which are set quite bright).

Looking at them in a few different screns, I think you are probably right - I've probably been a bit too focused on avoiding blown highlights.

      A number of years ago, I took this photo and really liked the colour and composition, however, it was taken with a 2Mpixel compact, so not too good for enlarging and printing.

      I did make a return visit to attempt a newer version, but the station was wrapped in scaffolding for renovations.  This time I was more lucky, although a bit later in the evening, so the I completely missed the blue.

      Another shot from slightly further downstream with the rail line rather than the station as the key element.

      Quite colourful for a night shot, I think.

      Walking back to the station yesterday, I just caught that wonderful dusky light.

      Luckily had a camera with me, but not quite a good enough one.  The noise does start to build up with the J1 at ISO800 and I just couldn't get it steady enough to drop the shutter speed to get down to ISO400.  Also had to crop as the 10-f/2.8 is just too wide in this environment.
