Swan Hill

“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.” – Ansel Adams

While I was looking for images in my gallery to post for some of my favourite images in 2022, I happened to chance on this album of my son’s trip to Swan Hill. So instead of posting my own images, I decided to put the photos that he took, which are definitely some of my favourites. 📸 Timothy Casten

Swan Hill is where my daughter in law’s mum lives and they visited her when they were here in Melbourne last August of 2022. In the photos you can see the tiny photos of Leigh, my DIL.

Swan Hill is a city in the northwest of Victoria, Australia on the Murray Valley Highway.

Tyrrell is a locality in the Rural City of Swan Hill and is known for Lake Tyrrell which is Victoria’s largest salt lake.

Sand textures.

And lastly some images of murals on silos and houses.

I am hoping that you have enjoyed some of my favourite images taken by Tim in 2022. This is for Lens Artist Photo Challenge which is led this week by John (Johnbo)
