Enjoying Macro Photography

Happy New Year, dear friends! Wishing you all a very happy 2016.

While my family and I were holidaying on the Mornington Peninsula last week, we spent a peaceful afternoon in a 230-hectare old Homestead known as The Briars, in Mount Martha. There was something so captivating about all the flora and fauna there that I decided to switch my Nikon camera to Close-Up mode and immerse myself in the vast amount of different flowers and leaves prevalent throughout the gardens. The Briars is an excellent place to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon, go for a walk along the boardwalk with the possibility of finding kangaroos and koalas in their natural surroundings, smell the roses, hear the roosters call and admire a beautiful maze of perfectly trimmed hedges. It’s truly every Victorian nature lover’s paradise, with a lovely cafe and restaurant also onsite. The best part is – it also has free admission.
