River inspires photographer
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.”
