I love the effort Bathurst Council went to this festive season. I just had to get a good capture of the Christmas tree in the middle of town with nice light. A big thank you for all your support throughout 2017. Wishing you a joyful Christmas and New Year.

These spectacular falls often go unnoticed. This is an epic aerial panorama capturing the entire waterfall in all its glory. I would be keen to return to this location first thing in the morning and capture it with the sun on the waterfall itself.

Sculptures in the scrub http://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2017/11/sculptures-in-the-scrub This walking trail is in the Pilliga National Park. While the access is not too far, the condition of the road can make it take a long time to get to. It's a fairly easy walk with some nice views and a picnic spot. Best of all, there is a number of artworks along the trail which makes this place a special one to visit. Visit the National Parks website for official details and access information.

Thought I would go for a creative angle on this one. The first, and one of my favorites on the walk.

Spring Snow 2017 http://www.davidromaphotography.com/blog/2017/9/spring-snow-2017 Perfect one day beautiful the next.

The snow was quite localised; nothing in O'Connell, Oberon, some in black springs, and a bit more south of it. Probably still there if you fancy an afternoon drive.

I have taken a heap of photos that I will upload to this blog post as I get the chance. Keep warm :)

Snow 3 waysSnow 3 waysAerial panorama of spring snow fall near Black Springs nsw australia

Snow 3 ways

Aerial panorama of today's snow fall in the Central West near Black Springs NSW, Australia. You can see another snow storm blowing in from the right which ended the flight short.

 

Road to snowhereRoad to snowheresmall snow covered dirt road in the pine forests near Black Springs NSW Australia Road to snowhere

What too much? Can't go wrong with a small dirt road covered in snow in a pine forest can you. This panorama is one of my favorites from my little expedition today. 

 

Cold Colourful LogCold Colourful LogA colourful log in the snow in Black Springs Cold Colourful Log

I appreciated the colour in an otherwise white scene. The orange of the decaying timber and bright grass poking through. Decided to go for a shallow depth of field on this one to really draw the eye to the front of the log.

Had to feel for the animals in their frozen fields. I don't think the dam was frozen over but I imagine it was a rather cool drink. 

 

Postal ServicePostal ServiceCute letterbox in the snow Postal Service

This letterbox caught my eye. Looked like a mini house with the snow settling quite thick on the roof. You can see its actually snowing quite heavy while this shot was taken. 

 

Maters ChillMaters ChillLooks like Mater from the Cars moive. In a snow field with horses Maters Chill

I thought this truck looked like Mater from the Cars movie. You can see up on the hill near the tree are some horses as well.

Loved the lighting on the snow covered pine branch with the dark forest in the background.

But names will never hurt me. I like to capture some of the detail as well as the wide landscapes.

Leading lines through the snow. One of my favorites from the trip. 

 

Snow waySnow wayShooters Hill road in the snow. Grass shadows behind the trees Snow Way

Shooters Hill road in the snow. I like how it looks like the Trees have grass shadows. I guess its because the snow was coming in at an angle? Seems to have cooled off again after a hot weekend.

 

Horses in the snowHorses in the snowThey were very curious what I was up to Horses in the snow

They were very curious what I was up to. Didn't seem to mind the snow though.

Fiji Dinner - There are worse places to dine in Fiji. Wicked Walu at sunset.

 

Wicked WaluWicked WaluThe highest rated resturant in Fiji

Wicked Walu Seafood Restaurant
Warwick Resort, Coral Coast, Fiji

This is the top rated restaurant in Fiji for good reason. The meals are delicious, the staff are great and the view is tough to beat. Every night they light up the torches that lead you across the path to the island. From the deck you can see the fish swimming, and later the reef sharks come in for the left overs.

The waterfall was raging at Beechworth victoria. This one is a massive stitched panorama of 9 slow shutter speed shots. It's hard to capture just how large these falls are.

 

 

Beechworth Post OfficeBeechworth Post OfficeBeechworth Post Office at sunset

Beechworth Post Office

Pretty self explanatory. This one was taken at sunset from the cobblestone lined roundabout. I had to get the timing just right to avoid getting any cars in the shot. Thought I would include the lamp post to keep a bit of foreground interest.

 

 

BeechworthBeechworthBeechworth honey discovery with roundabout at sunset Beechworth

I think this shot captures the essence of the town. The Beechworth honey discovery buiding with their unique roundabout at sunset. That's all for my quick trip to Beechworth. I think my favorite part was not captured however, the awesome selection of beers at the brewery.
