FOUR DAYS ON THE MURRAY RIVER

Morning Light

In Febuary 2015 I spent four days on The Murray Princess, a paddle boat that cruises the Murray River in South Australia. I was assisting another photographer Heidi Linehan of HeidiWho  who was shooting promotional material for Sealink.

It was pretty on the river, morning mist rises and there is plenty of animals to see by the riverbanks.

The boat is pretty loud inside but when you get used to it the experience of seeing the river like this is quite peaceful.
