Of drought and flooding rains

DSC_0141 (1024x680) (2)As Dorothea Mackellar noted, Australia really is a land of extremes, and one of my great joys is photographing those extremes.

One of the photos I get a lot of great comments on is one I took on the Murrumbidgee when it was in full flood. It’s of a dead bush, reflecting in the water. At least I thought it was dead until I was there again when the flood had receded and the “dead” bush was a mass of green leaves.

So here are the comparison shots. The first one taken in June 2012 and the second in January 2014.

You can see more shots of our dam over time here.
