Morning River

About a month ago whilst walking to a train station I took this photo.

There were a few things I found appealing about it:

The low water level revealing a lot of the constructed riverbank bank and bed.

The rubbish that ends up in The Cooks River being apparent, yet somewhat-ambiguous.

The strong reflection on parts of the water.

The ibes feeding.

The way the light is cast on the area.

The great amount of vegetation in the area obscuring some of the more urban elements.

This is my submission into the seventieth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Monochrome“.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This week is hosted by Patti and next week’s will be hosted by Leya.

I recommend checking out the challenge to see how people interpret each theme.
I also recommend giving it a go.

I hope you enjoy.

    A peaceful scene, SH. I can see why it appealed to you. The reflections and light really come through in black and white. And thanks so much for “spreading the word” about our challenge! We really appreciate it.
