Taken with a Nikon D60 at Echuca, Victoria, Australia. This shot was taken from aboard a paddlesteamer as we chuffed back into the port after a ride. I made it a sepia shot to fit the history of the wharf which was built in stages from 1865 and was constructed out of Murray River Red Gums in three levels to accommodate the rising and falling river levels, reaching a length of 1200 meters. Only a small part remains today as the tourist area and holds many historic displays and artifacts, well worth a visit. It was once the busiest river port in Australia.
