Spring in Australia with the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens

Written by Gary on October 9th, 2014

I won’t bore you with how much I love the Olympus mZD 75mm f/1.8 lens for Micro Four Thirds – you already know that.

Here are more images from my drives and bushwalks recently in rural Victoria:

Bushwalking through the forests in the Victorian goldfields – reminds me of the Australian impressionist painters of the late 19th century such as Tom Roberts:

Bushwalking through ancient lava canals in Mt Eccles National Park:

Remains of a petrified forest – an amazing eerie landscape full of remnants of petrified trees in far western Victoria:

Lava columns pounded by the ocean – similar to the Giant’s Causeway in northern Ireland and shows how much dynamic range the sensor has – I was able to gain detail in the over-exposed ocean at top of the image very nicely indeed:

Volcanic maars and pastural land with cows and lovely light between the rain showers, Camperdown:

and finally, a couple with the Olympus mZD 60mm f/2.8 macro lens hand held – it is Spring after all:

A couple types of Daviesia sp. pea flowers:

A lonely rare native white orchid as close as I could get without shaking too much:
