Stanthorpe / Girraween Weekend

Last week I headed out to Stanthorpe for a client training session – which was a great excuse to get out to Girraween National Park, and stay for a couple of days.  I can’t believe that I had not been back here for 30 years.  The area is spectacular – with so many photo opportunities that I will definitely be back soon (in fact  plan to organise some “guided” photography weekends to this area – watch this space).

I don’t know quite where to start, because I took so  many photos (and timelapses) that it is likely to take me weeks to process them all. But just some of the great photo opportunities are :

  • Wineries and Vineyards (thanks to Cheryl/Brad from Savina Lane Wines and and Sam from Golden Grove Estate for an amazing guided tour of the area)
  • Stanthorpe Railway Bridge and The Southern Downs Steam Railway
  • Girraween National Park – spectacular Granite Landscape, amazing wildflowers and animals, fantastic flowing creeks
  • Ballendean Pyramid and surrounding area…
  • Spectacular Sunrises/Sunsets
  • Star Trails – one of the “darkest” places I have ever been at night
  • Falls Drive (Killarney to Boonah)

….. and much much more…  Herer is a selection of shots from the weekend…  (Timelapses to come)
