"Camshootu3asa" is the blog of Campbelltown SA University of the Third Age (U3A) Photoshoot Group.
Each month, during term time, we meet at an agreed location to spend an hour or so taking photographs followed by morning coffee at a nearby coffee shop. Members of the group are encouraged, but not obliged, to post a selection of their "shots" on the blog each month.

Morialta - after the storm and before the deluge - Robin

Water - shows the beauty within the rock
Spring at Morialta and the wildflowers are starting to appear
The usual Koalas but this one did not want his photo taken
The Falls - looking lovely in the spring sunshine
Path - what path? - where did my path go?
The power of water - these rock were like little pebbles in the storm

Morialta - Jan

The Falls 
How long will these remain standing? 
Some of the debris washed down 

Looking fairly serene - at the moment!

From the golf course carpark across the Obahn bridge.
Obahn buses come and go all day long.

The Lockend House is loverly except for the all to close fencing which spoils it.

Just imagine this in its hay day. Horse and carriages riding between the trees.

From these board walks to open parks and lakes.
I think I see a duck.

From old homes to new eco friendly ones.


A great stroll around the park followed by a cuppa and cake at the golf course café with fellow photo-shooters and with pleasant conversation.

Lochiel Living with Nature - Vale

Lochiel Park was developed as  a Sustainable Living Village with spaces for people and nature to co-exist. Located in the Campbelltown Council district, on the banks of the Torrens River. In the past it was home to Indigenous people, early European settlers and is currently a community of creative people.

 Even the walking path signs are happy!

 These mosaics hide ugly concrete drains and are part of the S.A.L.A festival 2016

 There is indigenous art to be found in the woodland walk.

The birdlife seems relaxed about encounters with humans!
