Winter insists on continuing on – some winter oaks in Australia

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

Most of us in the southern parts of Australia can’t wait for Spring to kick into gear.

For those of us in Melbourne, the next few days will bring another cold polar vortex blast from the Antarctic which will bring damaging winds and snow down to 400m.

Here are a couple of images last week of my winter walks amongst the oak trees in central Victoria near Bendigo taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II with Olympus mZD 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens.

This might be winter but unlike Europe, that does not mean there be lush green grass at the foot of the oaks – no this is Australia and it has it’s own ambience.

Will I brave the wind chill and risk of falling branches today and head out exploring – let’s see how I am feeling!
