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

Sometimes I am reminded of how much I love being a landscape photographer. 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 easy to 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.
