Weekend Wanderings – Kyneton
Last Wednesday I went for a trip with my photography friends and we decided to head north to Kyneton. It is a beautiful country town, with many old buildings and some fantastic little features. With it only being about a two hour drive up the Calder Freeway, it is a very doable day trip. We didn’t do much in the town, but rather headed out the Malmsbury Road to photograph a bridge I have photographed quite a few times.
It is a disused bridge that is alongside the road. I find it quite fascinating. Every time I go back there is something different, and this time it was the water, it was up so high. We have been having a lot of rain lately. Actually we almost didn’t go because of the weather. It was very windy, I mean very windy, and we thought we would get rained on. Which we did, but not until we got to town.
We discovered a way to get to the other side of the bridge, which was really nice, and I suppose technically trespassing, but no one came and said get out, so we took more photos. It was nice to take a walk in the paddock and see the river more. Can you tell what the weather was like? The river was behind this tree, over near the other ones, but it was so wet and soggy I couldn’t get close to it.
This a photo from in town. We had lunch there and had planned on wandering and taking photos, but the rain set in so we headed home. I couldn’t believe the footpaths, look at them. We think it is bluestone blocks. I haven’t see footpaths like these before. I thought they were amazing.
I have more photos for you to see and will put them in a gallery. Enjoy your weekend.
