    Swan Valley Early Morning Shoot ??

    How about Sunday 3rd July?

    I was thinking of getting out early and shooting what I would suggest will be a foggy start to the day. There are plenty of spots to start out, but down near one of the water ways with vines in the BG would be my pick.

    Please put some starting locations up, so all that might go can have there say.

    After a morning shooting, we could catch up and grab breckie and coffee locally.

    Baxter & Stokes is my pick, looks up-hill toi the east to catch the rising sun.

    On the corner of Harper Street and West Swan Road is an area that we could use as a carpark I think. I'll check it out during the next couple of weeks. If it works we would then be facing east so foggy sunrise shots may work.

    Hi Roosta, I am an old part country boy from Perth but did live for a number of yrs on the fringe of the Swan Valley back in the 60's as a teen ager, moved to the Pilbara in the early 70's for the mining boom and helped build quite a bit of Karratha town. I imagine the area has changed quite a bit in the last 35 odd yrs. I went to the first Wine festival on the banks of the river at the old bridge there. Used to be a pub at the bridge on the park side and a Police station on the corner with an old prison at the back behind the post office. Be very interested to see the photos of this day out - from what I have heard I would not know the place now.
    Please be honest with your Critique of my images. I may not always agree, but I will not be offended - CC assists my learning and is always appreciate

    Its evolved alot mate, try www.swanvalley.com.au.

    It's a bit of a shame, alot of the old buildings have made way for the monster sized wineries. Guildford is still, in some parts, as you'd remember I guess. Hope the weather is good for us.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the info - Amazing. Swan Valley was all farms, some winneries and market garden growers in my day. As young kids ,in summer time we used to swim the river and pinch . umm, borrow, a water melon to eat on the river bank, got away with it most time but the old salt petta shot gun cam out a few times. Tey used to turn a blind eye to growers stopping kids by us salt petta in the 4010's in those day :-.

    Looking forward to the photos

    Had a look at the corner and we can't use it as it's a weighbridge, so no parking.
    Did have a drive around and found the corner of Woodward Rd and Hammersley Rd.
    Got this shot so maybe it'l work?



    Most of the other areas the vines either go across field of view or there are other obstruction such as High Tension Power Lines, buildings and vine frame works.

    and what direction is that looking, North? - East.

    Is this far from Bells Rapids, where Shirl suggested???? - Not sure but my guess would be a half hours drive away.
