Adelaide at Night.

The main Victoria Square fountain in the centre of Adelaide's CBD taken during late afternoon while were were waiting for darkness.

Once it was dark, we started to click away and finished up with this one amongst many others.

With the light shining on the water and the slow shutter speed, this effect was achieved.

House boats on the River Murray come in all shapes and sizes from accommodating only two people to just about as many as you like.

While this houseboat may look small, it will accommodate up to 12 people in luxury style.

Luxury plus, with this multi story houseboat from the Unforgettable range.

This one found itself stuck on the sand when it wanted to move off, something any size houseboat needs to be careful of when berthing for a period of time.

Murray River South Australia.

The creeks and low lying flood areas that are filled with water from the Murray River are known as backwaters.

As there is very little water movement within the backwaters, it allows more reeds and water plants to grow as seen here.

The brown cover seen here is a ribbon type weed which grows where the water is still and allows the water below to become crystal clear.

These backwater areas can be very pretty to look at and offer a peaceful location to all of those who visit the area.

Old Buildings.

These buildings are a part of the old Wilpena Homestead which is located at Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.

These buildings have been maintained to their original condition and layout.

With the green grass seen in these photos, it is easy to see why the early explorers first thought that it was a suitable area for cereal cropping.

Innes National Park.

Innes National Park can be found 300 kilometres from Adelaide on the tip of Yorke Peninsula.

As with most National Parks, there is an entry fee applicable which can be paid at the Park entrance.

The Park offers camping, bush walking, photography and some great ocean views just to mention a few.

Late Afternoon Light.

With the fading afternoon light, the River Murray turns a golden colour as the sun is going down.

Hogwash Bend on the River Murray is a favorite spot of ours and as such, we have a lot of mixed photos of the area.

This one is also of Hogwash Bend although it was taken earlier in the afternoon before the golden colour started to have it's effect.

Flinders Ranges.

Rawnsley Bluff is a part of the Wilpena Pound area of the Finders Ranges in South Australia.

When you view Rawnsley Bluff as the sun is setting, you will see it change to a rich golden colour before changing to a dark blue as the light fades.

Between Wilpena Pound and Hawker, you will find the Moralana Scenic Drive which takes you west from the main Wilpena Pound road across to the Leigh Creek road.

The photo here was taken from the Black Gap Nature Preservation Area which is a short drive off of the Moralana Scenic Drive.

While being away for the weekend, these were two species of the many birds that were about.

Many Kookaburras were calling each other from the tree tops that they perched high up in.

The smaller Miner bird was about in great number and wasn't slow to move in for a free feed when on offer.

Holiday Units.

Melrose is located 265 kilometres north of Adelaide and is the oldest town in the Flinders Ranges.

These unusual looking overnight accommodation units can be found at one of the local Hotels in Melrose's main street.

The designer of these units certainly came up with something different to look at. One unit was even built around a tree as if the vehicle had actually hit the tree while travelling along.

Adelaide at Night.

These photos were taken a few years ago while in the main part of Adelaide's CBD with this one being taken at North Terrace soon after sunset.

With the neon signs lit up at night, this one in the Rundle Mall makes me wonder what sort of fun could be had capturing some of the lights in Vegas or Tokyo.
