Weekend Wanderings: Early Morning Along the Yarra River

Melbourne-city-yarra-river-morning-1026

This morning, not long after this post publishes I will be in a similar place with lots of other ladies photographing the river and the city over the river.  Mornings in Melbourne can be a great time to get so beautiful photos of the city and if you are lucky get it reflected very nicely in the river.  Unfortunately on this morning the river wasn’t being nice and wasn’t smooth, but we still go some great shots.

This was one of the first shots I took, you can see that with no clouds we weren’t going to get a good sunrise, still the colours were nice.

I know it wasn’t one of those brilliant red sunrises, but the orange and the silhouette or the surrounds is quite good.

The rising sun painting the city with gold, I like it when that happens in the morning.

We headed into the city and played around with the wide angle lens seeing what things up close looked like with it.

It was just before Easter, so I  had some fun taking some photos of the Easter eggs in the shops.

We went for a wander along Collins Street to Southern Cross Station and took photos along the way.

It was a lovely morning for photos and I really enjoyed it.  I am hoping that this morning is just as nice as well, maybe even nicer. It is going to take me a while to respond to comments, but I will get to them when I get home. I hope your morning starts off well and you have a great Sunday.
