Mt Macedon Fungi Hunt 2019

The Mt. Macedon Fungi Hunt was attended by 35 members and family on 7th July. We were very fortunate as the weather was kind to us, only turning in the afternoon.

After meeting at Mcgregors Picnic Ground in Mt Macedon, and receiving some pointers from Neil Anderson, we set out in all directions from the car park on the hunt for local fungi. Most stayed close, others went a little further afield.

Yarra Valley Day Trip 2018

It took a while to fully organise our Yarra Valley outing as there were so many opportunities for interesting visits for photographers in this beautiful and generous part of Victoria and only so many hours in a day.

We started in Lilydale where we gathered in a very nice cafe, “Gracious Grace”, right next to the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum. The owner seemed slightly worried when we arrived. Two by two or one by one, 17 members used nearly all the chairs on the terrace! Then she was reassured that all we needed was a good coffee and some cake.

St Arnaud-Donald Weekend

Thirty three members of the Williamstown Camera Club (WCC) were in Donald on Saturday 7th April, 2018 with the aims of taking photographs of Donald Historical Society venues, the town and areas around Donald, and astrophotography using the clear starry night skies to be seen in the area. 

Our group met at the Bullock’s Head around lunchtime and was welcomed by the President of the Donald Historical Society, Anne Dunstan and other members including Brian Brasier. Deputy Mayor of Buloke Shire, Daryl Warren, also welcomed the group.

Beach Hopping Photoshoot

Landscape/Seascape photography on a sunny day with no wind and no prospect of clouds to add interest to the sky is often not on the radar for quite a lot of photographers. However, these were the weather conditions presented for our photoshoot to The Blowhole/Elephant Rock (Flinders) and 16th Beach (near Rye ocean beach). The tide was out (it looks like the organiser misread the tides), and there was minimal, if any, action by The Blowhole.

Walk Around Williamstown with Our Friends from Colac

Those who attend our photowalk around Williamstown had a lovely day out with seven members visiting from Colac Camera Club - sun shining, not too hot.  

A highlight was the privilege of being allowed to wander the berths within the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria and see close up some fabulous (and some famous) boats yachts - thanks to Francoise and David Muller-Robbie.  

We rounded out our day with some refreshing drinks at the Hobsons Bay Yacht Club - courtesy of Cas Bukor. 

We did, of course, take photos earlier at the beach, the Williamstown Botanic GardensTime Ball Tower, and just generally around town. You can see the photos in the attached gallery.
