Mountview Alpaca Farm Canungra
– A Great Day Out In The Scenic Rim –
Recently my family and some close friends spent the day at Mountview Alpaca Farm – An amazing experience where you can not only feed the alpacas but you can also walk them around the farm.
The farm is located within the grounds of O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards about 6 minuets drive from Canungra Town Centre, officially in the Scenic Rim Shire of Queensland – However is also very close and neighbouring the Gold Coast Hinterland.
The grounds of O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards are stunning – Lush and green with an amazing view of the mountains and the Canungra creek running along side. It’s the perfect setting to purchase a bottle of wine and a picnic hamper from the vineyard caffe and hit the relax button.
Now this is a “Photography Blog” so lets get into it – Armed with my Lumix G9 and 2 lenses the Lumix 35 to 100mm f/2.8 and my Leica 12mm f1.2 – I was set out to capture some great images of our day.
We got to the grounds around 11am and it was a HOT and Bright spring day in Queensland, so it made for a very challenging photographic experience, however I love the challenge of shooting right in the middle of the day and working to my environment.
I always try to protect my highlights and not blow out the sky or other bright element! So under exposing was the name of the game and I do also try and get thing correct in camera as much as I possibly can – However I knew in such bright conditions shooting in RAW and post production work was certainly on the cards. I also forgot my ND filter… … … GREAT… … …
Wrapping things up – The day at Mountview Alpaca Farm Canungra was a fantastic time for the family and a great photographic opportunity. The food the setting and most importantly the Alpacas all made for a super fun experience we will all remember.
