The High Country in Autumn is just gorgeous, it’s as simple as that. Back in May (sorry! its been back-to-back shooting), I was sent to shoot the region for Visit Victoria. I had been at the end of Summer and the atmosphere was completely different, both times beautiful, although I think I preferred it this time around. The colours and textures in the region were incredible, totally appealing to my inner photo-geek. The mornings were frosty and the days were drizzly, but it was snug, refreshing and inspiring to shoot. There was a certain buzz around as Winter and snow season weren’t too far off.
I was a guest at the picturesque Cavedon’s Kilnhouse, an architecturally refurbished tobacco shed just outside of Porepunkah. I must have been dreaming in thinking that this would be my rustic but modern country house when I’m older! The heated concrete floors were heavenly and the fresh chestnuts for roasting were a lovely touch. I’ll definitely be back here for longer next time.
I’ll let the photos do most of the talking in this one as a lot of the spots visited were similar to the High Country Summer post.
Don’t miss grabbing a coffee from Sixpence in Bright, the best spot in town. While you’re there, be sure to stock up on some freshly baked bread and/or a pastry. Seriously. Delicious.
Do Mount Buffalo National Park, it’s incredibly pretty. Pack snacks though, because it’s a bit of a drive and if you’re anything like me, you’ll get carried away taking shots and loose track of time. For later on, bring a good novel, or in my case – a few good magazines to read as the evenings are chilly so relax and get cozy. Often overlooked by the larger wineries in the area, Ringer Reef has an incredible selection of wines – don’t miss it as you’re driving past.
