Winter Micro Adventures - Astrophotography & Landscapes
Most people hibernate in winter but it is actually the best time of the year to shoot Australian landscapes. Sunrise times are not as early as summer. Astrophotography opportunities and conditions are much easier to handle better quality images.
Looking for a quick escape from the city to soak up some nature? We all need to re-charge our batteries and learn something new. Most importantly having fun in our outside classrooms is our prime goal. These short trips last for 3 days and are not too far from Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide. They are season and time specific. Weather can be unpredictable but with some luck you can come back with lots of amazing images.
