Drought, flood and changes in the dam

2012-12-Christmas Every time we go to the farm I’m struck anew with the changes that happen in a short time. The most striking of these is the big dam.

Sadly, this time we only saw the Murrumbidgee at night, but in the moonlight I could tell it was full. And of course, that means the dam is full as well – a big change from when we were there only a few  months ago.

I’ve pulled together all the photos I have of the dam taken from about the same angle so you can see it for yourself. The very early photos were taken by Doc before I started going down there, and I only started the project of documenting from the exact angle a couple of years ago.

The photos are in chronological order, from August 2010 through to September 2014. If you hover over the image you should see the date it was taken
