I’m tempted to title this post “Things you can photograph with a proper camera”. The best ones turned out to be videocaps, thanks largely to the more powerful zoom on the video camera.
I would like to have taken more nature shots, but my wife seems to think that taking photos without the kids in the frame is inherently wrong…
Anyway, none of these involved going off the beaten track. For example, this photo was taken just outside Goolwa, near the barrage.
This one was taken at the barrage, where overflow from the Murray River is released into the sea.
We could have gotten a shot like this almost anywhere – the Gold Coast was full of them!
Our trip to the Riverland – Lyrup, Renmark, Loxton and Berri – gave us a different view of river wildlife.
This one was a good catch…
And the sunset on the river is wonderful.
A return to Goolwa and a day trip to Victor Harbor.
We went across to Granite Island in the hope of seeing penguins. We weren’t in luck – it seems that the penguin population has plummeted. Seals may be partly responsible.
But instead we saw this:
It was a good trip.
I hope to have some more wildlife from suburban Japan coming soon.
