Nature Photography Workshop - Lake Parramatta.

This weeks photos are from a Nature Photography Workshop at Lake Parramatta Reserve put on to celebrate Threatened Species Day and was organised by the Parramatta Council's Open Space and Natural Resources Team.
 The morning was led by John Martyn, author of  'Sydney's Natural World',  and it was good to get some helpful tips and to see the bush through other people's eyes.
     ( N.B. this workshop was held on the Saturday which I substituted for my Friday outing)
