Melbourne Cup day 2009 the awesome foursome (as Kathryn has come to call us) went on a little photo shooting trip. David, Kathryn, Sue and I went to Serendip Sanctuary at Lara in Victoria. Sue had bought her camera just the week before, a Sony Alpha A350 with dual lens kit.
We try and get out every now and then but it has been a little bit of time since our last outing and Kathryn found the perfect place, right in our own backyard (as they say).
Serendip Sacntuary is about a 20 minute drive from home near Lara on the way to Geelong, in the shadow of the You Yangs Regional Park. It’s an expansive park with wetlands, grasslands and a couple of averies with native birds. And the best bit is entry is free.
We were lucky to see that there was a baby brolga at the sanctuary, and as you can see from the photo above they are so cute. I started to call the little guy “fluff on a stick”.
Kathryn not only drove us there, she also provided lunch an awesome picnic of chicken Caesar salad, ham, baked chicken and Russian potato salad. It was all delicious and followed up with a cheese platter and banana bread that David made.
The photos here are just the ones I took. David and the ladies took many great photos of their own.
I know the video is a little lame, I promise to make a better one next time I’m there. It was taken on my Canon 5D MkII.
