Photo Spot Details

You’re best bet is to get out on the river on a houseboat, these can be hired in many places. The river has many aesthetically interesting and photographic spots, I’ve just focussed on Blanchetown. There are lots of dead trees poking out of the water which makes for a nice, moody scene when the weather’s dreary, but it can be far more beautiful on a sunny day and at dusk.
