Moogerah Dam – “End of the Line”   Leave a comment

Leading into last weekend  – it is lunch time Friday and we are on the road – a 2 hour road trip for a weekend adventure  –  our long anticipated weekend away at “Moogerah Dam”  spending two night staying at a beautiful old house based on the banks of the Dam itself   – a nicely secluded (as in the last house on a dead end road with a lot of farm land between us and the closest neighbour) –   sharing the time with some great friends.

On the evening  of our arrival, we were treated to a stunning sunset across the water.

And the sunrise the next morning was nearly as stunning

The main reason photographers usually go to Moogerah with a camera is for the astro photography – but unfortunately the clouds that gave the spectacular sunrise/sunsets were a start of more to come and we did not get much clear sky

I did  manage a semi “Milky Way” shot quickly between some thicker cloud bands going through – but certainly not we were there for

We did a little bit of “fire spinning” by the Lake side.

And there were LOTS of birds to photograph

A quick photo of the house as we were packing to leave (phone photo) – pity it was a afterthought as with the different light over the weekend could of got some nice photos of it.

In summary a great weekend – we photographed, fished, and did a little bit of boating  – there was a bonfire – we will be back.

A link to their website is here for anybody looking to go there – there is also caravan and tent accommodation available separately but you do not get this fabulous seclusion.

If you want to see even more photos from the weekend – I will have these and more on my facebook photography page soon
