Adelaide city

Click on the photo to enlarge
I have been posting for over a month now and have not yet shown a photo of Adelaide City; so here it is. Adelaide was built on the banks of the River Torrens, a source of water for the first European settlers. The river's function now is aesthetic and recreational. The photo is taken from a spot near the weir which holds back the water; the river only flows after heavy rains.

The bridge you can see is the Morphett Street Bridge; it links Adelaide and North Adelaide. In the background you can see the Mt Lofty Ranges; about 10 kilometres east.
