Directly across the river from Point Reserve in Bassendean, we started this session tackling some soft morning light at Kings Meadow Reserve in Guildford before moving on to Garvey Park.

Moving further downriver in Guilford today we explored Fishmarket reserve, looking across at the glowing morning light hitting the cliffs at Success Hill - stunning vibrancy to try and capture!

An early morning start gave us intense light and some nice mist at Reg Bond Reserve in Viveash, great shadows and lots of interesting views at this quiet little bend in the river...
