I went at the end of Autumn and the Autumn foliage colours were just gorgeous. It not just the colours it is also the ornamental lake and boat house with a couple of small bridges that just make this place so picturesque. Whilst the gardens are surrounded by rain forrest. It is a delightful place for a walking adventure with a camera.  I was in my happy place taking lots of delightful photo’s.

This day was the perfect day, late afternoon and slightly cloudy for taking photo’s. I am a new hobbyist photographer and are still learning how to navigate the settings of my DSLR camera and take good photo’s. All I know is I need to get out there and practice and take a lot of photo’s. This place makes it easy to take pretty photo’s because it is just so delightfully beautiful.

You can discover the Alfred Nicholas Gardens for yourself by going to Dandenong Ranges,  Sherbrooke Road, Sherbrooke, Victoria. Admission is free, and the photography opportunity is great. To find out more go to Parks Victoria’s site. 

This post has been inspired by the Ultimate Blog Challenge Day 11, which I have been encouraged to share some photo’s. This year I am also sharing a picture a day on Instagram, which are mostly iPhone photo’s, because that the camera I always have with me.

 

 

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

  1. Hi Fran,
    I hope you are having a great weekend.
    From the pictures you are posting here, you are doing great with your camera.
    Are you doing any editting of the pictures before you post them?
    Is there a way to post a picture from your DSLR to instagram or does the photo have to come from your phone?

    • Hi Doug, There is a way to up load directly to social media I just not tech enough to work that out yet. Mostly up load to computer, edit on general photo editing in photos or Snapseed app on phone. The Snapseed cost a small amount of money, but so easy to use. Hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
