It was Australia Day yesterday (and India's national day as well, I think). Our local celebrations were held in the historic village of Berrima with, amonsgt other things, a parade.
Leading the parade were these three horse riders dressed in the uniforms of Australia's legendary Light Horsemen who played important WW1 roles especially in the Middle East.

Hi Ian, What a fun such a parade. The guys in historical uniforms are enjoying it also very much. Interesting old car behind.

Hi Ian !!
The image is so typical... Australians know how to enjoy themselves.
Nice view of the parade with the horses dominating centre stage.
Happy picture with vibrant colours.

I'm curious what the red and white flags are? Nice color, saturation and sharpness, and great to have 3 of a kind with the mounted light horsemen. Hoping to get to Gallipoli sometime in the next 6 months. The old fashioned vintage car behind adds to the mood. Tfs!

Good evening Ian
I hope you had a lovely Australia Day, it looks like those fellas did. Excellent reportage shot, and as someone else commented, the vintage car in the BG adds to the atmosphere too.
PS: Sorry I've been slack with the critiquing, I;ve been Bush down the South Coast.
