BORDER Mail photographer Ben Eyles regularly gets ribbed by his non-Border mates for choosing to move to Albury-Wodonga.
But when he goes on social media and posts stunning photos like this one, his decision seems less crazy.
“Everyone writes off this place as the city that you stop at on a trip between Melbourne and Sydney but it’s constantly surprising me with little moments like this,” he said.
“I was just sitting at a mate’s place having a barbecue and suddenly he whipped out his phone and started taking photos of this amazing sunset. It’s those moments that make me love the place.”
