Yarra Valley Weekend | Melbourne Photographer

Last weekend I managed to escape the city streets for a weekend at the Yarra Valley. I find myself working most weekends so it is a very rare and very exciting opportunity. But having friends visiting from Queensland seemed like as good a reason as any to take a long weekend. And the fact that I love taking a holiday.

The Yarra Valley is absolutely stunning and it is obvious why it is a popular wedding destination. Landscape photography is something I’ve never really gotten into but when presented with a stunning location it is hard not to be inspired. The rugged weather does fantastic things with lighting and I braved the cold to do a few shots. But don’t be put off by the cold as wine, cheese and beautiful views are best enjoyed in front of a roaring fire.

For the second photo in this series we were driving along between wineries and I noticed the sun streaming through the clouds. I exclaimed for Dave to “STOP”,  jumped out and managed to get three shots before the sun disappeared again.  The portrait is of Graham, a friend of mine who waited patiently in the cold while I clambered around in the mud on the side of the hill.
