A country drive

I took myself off on a country drive last week – scouting out new photo locations. Here is the map of the drive (minus the side trips exploring country roads)

First stop was the Minto crag area – a well known volcanic ring dyke right in Boonah’s backyard. It’s difficult to grasp it from the ground but a quick look on Google Earth will show you the obvious ring formation.

This photo was taken from the eastern side at sunrise. It’s a 6 image panorama.

From a little further down the road, I would have loved to get closer to the water but I don’t know the landowner.

While I was out taking photos I also had my Sony action camera taking a timelapse sequence – 1 photo every 5 seconds over and hour or so.

Here’s the very basic setup I am using:

As far as I know there isn’t a way down there but this view is about 5meters from the carpark.







Then it was on to Browns Falls which I hadn’t ever been to before. They are about a 20 minute walk up a lovely creek and well worth the effort when the creek is flowing nicely
