Generally, I take few photographs when I am hosting a landscape photography workshop. As my refrain goes: “It’s about you and your photography, not me and mine.” But, on Saturday’s Yarra Ranges workshop, after a couple of setbacks caused by an up-rooted tree and a forest road closure, I came up with a “plan B”. We drove the beautiful Acheron Way to Cement Creek. The image below is an impromptu demo that I set up to help my guests find compositions amongst the chaotic beauty that is Victorian rainforest.

“Plan A” had been to visit waterfalls and the quiet lusciousness along the Taggerty River. Cement Creek provided some compensation for missing out on that. But we’ve agreed to redress the rest of the balance by making a special and complimentary trip to The Meeting of the Waters and Keppel Falls when my guests are next in Melbourne.
