Photo Essay: Australian Grounds

I did it again. Low angle lurking. This time in Oz.

A couple of you might know that I am a fan of groundshots and that I started to collect landscape images of a certain style on various social networks. Hashtag #landscapegroundshot.

Today I want to show you my personal Top 30 groundshots taken along the coastline of South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. They represent a tiny glimpse of the typical flora in certain locations as well as nature’s treasures after being washed ashore by the sea or carried away by a gust of wind.

All pictures appear in chronological order. By viewing the gallery you will get impressions from Adelaide to Melbourne to Sydney. Please click on an image to enlarge it and read its description.

Photo Essay: South Australia, Australia

This is part 1 of our Christmas road trip through Australia in pictures: Adelaide, SA >>> Melbourne, VIC >>> Sydney, NSW (4,500 km).

Before arriving in Adelaide I only knew it is the driest city in the driest state of the driest continent. I was already able to confirm while our plane still approached for landing – first thoughts: brown & arid. My holiday mood slipped away shortly, but came back quickly as we travelled along the beautiful coast (a blue and yellow colour palette) of the Fleurieu Peninsula in the South of Adelaide. On our way to Kangaroo Island we even passed a famous – green – wine region (McLaren Vale); and I would be lying if I wouldn’t admit how much I loved the white of Coorong‘s salt lagoons and the blue and green of Mount Gambier‘s volcano lakes.
