Also within the first week of being in Perth, on my travels another student who just recently finished their study abroad year told me about a place called the foreshore. This was located just south of the swan river, giving you an amazing view of the skyline of the city! It was a nice day but I would like to return at dusk to get a more variety of photos including a sunset image and experiment with slow shutter speeds.
We then went across the swan river on the ferry which was nearby and went into the city. There are just so many photo opportunities hopefully will keep me going all year.
