From the Hills to the River

Eager to do a drive and photoshoot driving through the hills stopping off at Mt Torrens (brilliant old buildings)...then over  to Mannum Waterfalls (hoping they're flowing). Thinking of car pooling in 2 cars (keep group small..as too many cars trying to stay together could be a hassle). Then back to Adelaide. $10 per person in car pool should be satisfactory to help in fuel costs. Now just need a date for an upcoming weekend that will have nice weather.

    A long hot day in the hills, but the settings, landscapes and buildings were amazing. For those who came...thank you. Probably my last hills shoot until late autumn. Sun was pretty bright for most shoots, but hope most of the pics came out ok

    Meetup point will be on Kingston Tce in Nth Adelaide just around the corner from Lefevre Tce. All day parking for those who want to car pool. Some people may want to meet up along the way..but I cant confirm travel times or arrival times at various spots.. Plan is to drive from the City to Lobethal for quick break and optional pics via Greenhill and Lobethal rd. Continue to Mt Torrens for pics. Onto Mt Pleasant and Springton for another quick shoot. Onto dirt roads (drivable) passing the lovely stone walls onto Sedan. Main photo shoot. Option for people to head to Murray river or head back to Adelaide via Keyneton, Eden valley (photo shoot) with a winery on the way if the cellar doors are open.

    I could still make it for Sat the 7th, but looks like not many coming now?? Also I live in the Barossa so dont want to be driving all the way to Adel and leaving car there- happy to drive my own car and meet in Mt Torrens if we are going on to Sedan- Im not sure of the itinerary now.
    Michael you can send an email to all that RSVPd to let them know it still on....I think there is a setting to do this- its a busy time of the year now for most ppl......if I were you I would re list it- would be nice in Autumn with change of leaves colours etc.

    Sounds like a great idea, and shame on me for not seeing it earlier, hadn't realised there was more scheduled meetups. Maybe you could schedule this again early next year, but maybe later in the day?

    I dont do early morning- lol- later in the day is ok- but its really getting to get hot soon for this event....I think you need to decide on a date and relist it - people will not want to RSVP to something they dont know the date of when it will be.

    • Ersu

      unfortunately I have to agree :)

    Sorry... bit short notice for me now... I have a busy weekend and didn't expect it to be that early.
    Shame because I would have liked to have gone... let me know if you change the date to later in Dec or, even better, in the new year (i.e. Jan).

    Okey Dokey..Ive set a time and date and location for meetup. Forecast is for sunshine 27 degrees NE winds. So it will be quite warm. Perhaps too sunny for some shots early in the day..but hopefully better as the sun goes down. City meetup from there the plans is to drive through the hills to Mt Torrens. Then to the town of Sedan. From there...people can decide to head back via the Barossa..or continue on to River Murray. But it will be a long drive for the day PS. Mannum waterfalls arent gushing since my last visit. I'll be heading back to Adelaide via the hills from Sedan.
    Bring water, snacks, hat etc. Im guessing most people wont be attending due to short notice or pre Christmas lunches etc. So please ammend your RSVP if not coming. Now just trying to find a meetup spot in the city where people can park their car all day for those that want to car pool

    BTW... I have a Chrysler Voyager which will seat 7 people - we'll put the small ones on the very back (-:

    I've put myself down as a yes but, given there's no date, that may change depending on my availability. I guess I'm just expressing my interest.
    Apart from the date the time of day is important... be nice to do it really early (if you're keen enough) or late in the day to catch some nice long shadows and warm, contrasty light.

    Hi All...extremely sorry I havent written back. When I first posted this event...it was nearly 4 weeks until any one responded..and it was only 1 person. Funnily enough, I wasnt getting any emails of people RSVPing Yes...hence didnt know there's been a large increase in responses. My apologies. As for Mannum waterfalls...few rockpools now with very small water cascades. Not the best waterfall shoot. But Mt Torrens, Sedan, Eden Valley areas are brilliant (despite the hay fever). Have been showing some tourists these places recently. But eager to get out and do it again. Will set a date and time soon. Probably bypass the River portion and keep it a bit more simple in the hills region. No problems in having a larger group as long as no one complains if its hard to keep together in different cars.

    What if more than a small group want to go...are we now restricting our activities to only a few...?
