Saturday Snapshot: Roadtrip to Mildura

Last weekend I headed up to the town of Mildura, which is a regional city on the banks of the Murray River for a wedding. I had a fabulous time at the wedding (may have drunk a lot more than normal, but that's okay occasionally!) but I also enjoyed walking along the river and taking some photos.

On the road again

I spent a bit of time wandering around near Lock 11

  2. Like the panorama setting on your camera. Looks very good. You can always tell an Aussie photo. It looks so....well, erm, Australian. It's the light. There is no light anyplace else in the world that is the same as Aus. Enjoyed the diversion of a road trip.

  4. I hadn't seen the Murray for far too long when I went to Mildura in Feb - it really is magnificent. (Also magnificent in Mildura was the bakery which won 2nd place in the national vanilla slice competition!).
