Weekend Wanderings: Early Morning in the City

melbourne-city-river-autum-morning-1024

A couple of weeks ago I joined some other lovely ladies and we spent the morning taking photos along the Yarra River in Melbourne. The river was calm and clear.  It wasn’t mirror like, but still very nice and we managed to get some lovely reflections in the water along with some great colours.  It was a very peaceful morning.

It was meant to be a Social Snappers Event, but many didn’t show up, so here is what they missed.

It is a busy weekend for me, so I am just going to leave you with the photos today.  My weekend includes lots of photography, and I hope you are going to have a similar weekend.

  2. There’s nothing like the feel of a city in the early morning before it has got into its stride. Captured perfectly, Leanne.

      • My aunt lives in Melbourne and she tells me the same thing.. A bit expensive though to travel with the children.

        May 16, 2015
      • Yes, travelling anywhere with kids is expensive. Still, if you ever come we have to meet up.

  7. Beautiful city! I absolutely love city scapes… I’m obsessed. I have a hard time taking pictures of them that are worth looking at. But I still try!

    May 16, 2015
    • I love them too, I really need to start doing more again. Just keep going, you will get there, and I’m sure they are already good, we are always our own worse critics.

      May 16, 2015

  9. Just enough distortion in the river to create some interesting reflections. Beautiful!

    May 16, 2015
    • Yes, that is what I thought, of course mirror flat would have been perfect, but I will get that one day. Thank you Schwister.

  10. Oh glorious photos as usual Leanne. Really fabulous. That portrait shot of the city reflected in the water is just stunning.

    May 16, 2015

      May 16, 2015

    May 16, 2015

  13. just gorgeous… I look, and feel in all of them the depth and strength that you’ve conveyed so well. Nice lovely lines, and great negatives spaces with surprises peeking out from within them. Great photos!

    • Thank you, I needed that, you have a good weekend too.

  15. Some very nice photos! As a former pilot, I would call it glassy water! One of the most dangerous conditions for landing a float plane. It does make for some great photos using reflection. I actually enjoyed making glassy water landings with my Luscombe! Sorry, about the rabbit trail! Keep clickin’ and posting your wonderful photos!

    May 16, 2015
    • Yes, that is a good description, it is like glassy water. I have never been in a plane doing that. I love the reflections you can get, so cool. No need to apologize Marland, not at all, thank you so much and I will.

      May 16, 2015
  16. Wow, these are stunning. The mirror and the pop of red on that building are my favorites. Sounds like a great weekend, Leanne! Enjoy. I will be writing. I’m up against a deadline.

    May 16, 2015
    • Thank you Nicci, I love that mirror reflection. It has been so far, enjoy your writing.
