A Post for Kerrowdown
Lens: FA43 Camera: Pentax K-3 Photo Location: South Australia ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/2000s Aperture: F3.2

A couple of images for Kerrowdown and other Scottish forum members.

St Andrews Day celebrated from about as far from Scotland as you can get.


From Strathalbyn, South Australia.

Strathalbyn was settled by Scottish emigrants to the fledgling colony of South Australia in 1839, just three years after the colony was established. Strathalbyn is located in the Mt Lofty Ranges 60 km southeast of Adelaide on the banks of the River Angas.

Some of the best examples of early colonial stone buildings in South Australia can be found in Strathalbyn, including this lovely church.


St Andrews Church (F8 this time)

Was out and about testing my brand new K-3 bought Friday coupled with a new to me FA43 acquired Thursday.

Wow thanks for that, bit of a worry though, not seeing much evidence of any celebrations going on, just a lone saltire, certainly no drink evident in these images.

I didn't venture into any of Strath's pubs though. Those of Scottish descent were probably at home getting ready for a night out with one of the local Caledonian societies.
