Oasis Of Serenity

Murray River, Murray River National Park, South Australia, Australia

Sometimes I love being a landscape photographer more than others. Taking this image was definitely one of those moments. Sitting by the Murray River as the sun rose I was overcome with sense of calm, peace and quiet, totally untroubled by life as I relaxed on my own at the river’s edge. A river such as this comes to life as the sun rises for a new day and on this occasion it was hard to not just sit back and enjoy the moment, watching the river flow downstream and the abundant wildlife go about their morning activities. I hope this image conveys some of what I felt as I sat with my camera and tripod this morning.
