Mineral springs country, Victoria. Hepburn Springs. Daylesford. Clydesdale, Argyle Springs ...
Joe Mortelliti's life long love, from when he was first given a Brownie camera as a boy, was photography. It was the focus of his work life for many years. He loved to travel with his wife Marion to as many parts of Australia as he could. He had the ability to 'see' the beauty of our land in such a way that he could photograph it for the delight of others. These photos are a legacy that he has left us.

Country charm, Hepburn Springs, Victoria, Australia. Shepherd’s flat near Hepburn Victoria. We really felt this picture captured the Australian country side.
