On our way back to Adelaide from Melbourne we stayed a couple of days near Johanna Beach, which is close to the Great Otway National Park. This stay had been planned by Suzanne a couple of months ago.
I had tentatively planned to add onto this stay some photography of the effects of the bush fire at Separation Creek and Wye River along the Great Ocean Road. However, the length of time it took to travel the distance to these localities and coastal towns was too great to photograph in the early morning light or at twilight.
So I took the opportunity of the stay to go photographing in the rainforest of the Otway Ranges. This is a scoping image made with my digital camera--the Sony NEX-7 whilst taking a walk along the Old Ocean Road:
I was exploring the rainforest outside the national park--the Otway Forest along the Old Ocean Road from memory. I used my baby Linhof---the Linhof Technika 70---with its 2 6x9 Linhof film backs: one was loaded with colour film (Kodak Portra 160) the other was loaded with black and white film (Ilford PanF Plus). Alas, I had inadvertently loaded the colour film the wrong way. So I've only got the black and white film negatives.
