Melbourne Photographic Ramble – Saturday 4th February

An afternoon  walk around Melbourne taking images around the village.  The walk will start from Castle Square , in front of the White Swan pub at 1:30 pm for a 2 pm start, and end early in the evening after the sun has gone well below the horizon, no later than 6pm. Bring usual outdoor camera gear.

The provisional plan is to :

  • Initially around Melbourne Pool and the Hall for landscape and natural history photographs
  • Moving into the village to undertake some architectural & street photography
  • As the light falls, try your hand at getting some light trails and pictures of illuminated subjects
