River in­spires pho­tog­ra­pher

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

EARLY morn­ing walks were the in­spi­ra­tion for keen am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher Ann Jones’s photo MorningontheRiver.

The 68- year- old re­tired psy­chol­o­gist en­tered the River Guardians am­a­teur photo com­pe­ti­tion two years ago after snap­ping the im­age at the Win­dan Bridge.

“It was taken on a Satur­day morn­ing when I was wait­ing for a friend to ar­rive for a walk,” Ms Jones said.

“We of­ten meet at the old pow­er­house and walk along that sec­tion of the river in East Perth.

“That’s one of my favourite stretches of the river, es­pe­cially early in the morn­ing, so I usu­ally bring my cam­era with me and get there a bit early.

“That par­tic­u­lar morn­ing, I walked down to the Win­dan Bridge while I was wait­ing for my friend and saw the line of light show­ing through the two sec­tions of the bridge.”

Ms Jones said she loved the struc­ture of the bridge, which of­ten cre­ated beau­ti­ful shapes and re­flec­tions in the river.

Now a vol­un­teer at Rot­tnest Is­land, the Scar­bor­ough res­i­dent said she en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion be­cause she thought it was a won­der­ful idea to pro­mote the river and the role it played in the lives of Perth peo­ple.

“We are so lucky to have such won­der­ful recre­ational venues for both pas­sive and ac­tive recre­ational pur­suits,” she said.

“I'm re­tired now so have more time to pur­sue my pas­sion and I be­long to a lo­cal cam­era club where we have reg­u­lar com­pe­ti­tions.”
