The Red Yacht
Lake Wendouree, Ballarat. I've captured this lone yacht many times over the last year or so, and none better than on this morning in early January.
Amongst the Trees
A fantastic morning out near the Lal Lal Reservoir, south east of Ballarat.
Australia Day 2018
Our annual fireworks display over Lake Wendouree in Ballarat.
Coming in For Landing
A pod of pelicans arrives early one colourful morning at Lake Burrumbeet as a spectacular sunrise lights up the waters reflection,
I've captured many images of the rowing crews on Lake Wendouree. This one stands out with a huge colourful sunrise reflected in the lakes surface.
Water levels were down a bit this year, though there were still opportunities and the early morning light reflected here makes this image at Borrumbeeta Falls, near Ballarn, east of Ballarat , something special.
View Point Glory
A reverse sunset over View Point at Lake Wendouree in Ballarat is topped off by the late evening rainbow.
The best snow I've seen in the Ballarat district greeted, unexpectedly, at Mt Warrenheip...and it was actuallyin Spring!
I saw a lot of fog throughout the year, and none was creamier than this morning on the west side of Lake Burrumbeet.
Yacht Club Classic
A sunset to remember over the Ballaarat Yacht Club at Lake Wendouree.
One of my most visited locations throughout the year was Mt Warrenheip, east of Ballarat. The yearly display of Forget-Me-Nots was one of he best I've seen, as were the ferns this year.
The elderberry bushes at Lake Wendouree were also at their best this year.
Above the Mountain
The second last day of the year was one to remember. A carpet of fog above Mt Warrenheip was something very special (not to mention the lightning bolts crashing around me!)
My favourite image for 2018 comes from a spot that could be anywhere in the world, yet is only around 25 minutes from Ballarat. Eastern Peake's rocky outcrop has been in my sights for quite a while and after many visits I finally got the foggy conditions I was looking for.
