Photos worth 1000 words: ‘Straya’

When The Murray Valley Standard challenged readers to submit their photos on the theme “Straya”, we were overwhelmed by the number and quality of responses.

From sunrises and sunsets that show off our country’s beautiful natural vistas, to scenes of relaxation and fun in the paddock and on the river, to the native animals and peculiarly Australian breeds of dog that accompany us across our land, there were themes that shone through.

Never before have we been so inundated with lovely shots – so we decided to put them all in a gallery for your viewing pleasure, and publish 16 of the best in our print edition on Thursday, January 4.

If you would like to send us a photo, email or message us on Facebook.
