End of another day and yet my post is so late. I have been debating what to put up and in the end decided to brave the heat and go the river. This is the river that I took photos of in the post called Restful Sunday. It is the Yarra River, winding it way past where I live to the city.
It was lovely being by the river, but so many trees have grown up around the sides of the river it was hard to find anywhere to take any photos. There was one spot where I could get close, but there is a lovely suspension bridge that goes over it and I just couldn’t get a good shot of the river and the bridge.
This part of the river is really nice, there are rocks in it everywhere and platypus live in it. I have heard you can see them, of course you wouldn’t see them during the day, they are nocturnal.
This is a fairly common place for swimmers. When I first went there was no one there swimming, but as I was heading back some people had arrived. I hope they didn’t mind me photographing them. My vantage point was quite high.
This part of the river is littered with debris, rubbish and broken trees. The water has rushed through here a lot recently and has got very high. I should go down the next time we have a lot of rain and see what sort of photos I get then. It is very low now and very calm.
All three images were taken using a neutral density filter and are all HDR images.
I’m off to my mothers tomorrow. Looking forward to doing some HDR images of stuff up there. Should be good. Going to be really hot though, apparently 35 to 40 each day. Bit of a bugger. If you live in Victoria, so cool. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere think of us as you are freezing, we will certainly be wishing we were where you are.
