PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 13th October 2012 is ‘Empty’

View from a Birdhide

Australia has just come out of a drought period and the longest river in Australia, the Murray River almost dried up. The drought had lowered the level of the Murray River and this wetlands was completely empty. No birds here. This was the view looking from a birdhide in Goolwa that overlooks the Murray River. This area is usually full of water and teeming with birdlife.

White port and a bright fire

And just because I like the effects in this photo. My glass is nearly empty.

Don’t leave an empty comment, make it full.

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 8th September is ‘Stuck’

Boat on the sand bank

Australia has just come out of a period of drought and I live at the end of the River Murray (longest in Australia) where it finally exits to the ocean.  The Murray River was being affected by the drought in Australia and water flows are minimal. The river level had dropped so much that there were sand banks appearing and the river shoreline was expanding. The water level had changed dramatically. This boat is in the middle of the river and well and truly stuck.

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 4th August 2012 is ‘Oooooo’

This theme was hard for me to decide on the photo because I have so many photos I have taken over the years that made me go Oooooo. So in the end I culled it down to 5

Bee
I love how I captured this bee and flower so perfectly.

Sunrise
I do live in a great location. I have so many sunrise pictures that have made me go Oooooo over the years.

Hindmarsh Island bridge
Who would have imagined ever that the mighty Murray river in Australia (longest river here ) would be so depleted of water due to drought and over-allocation upstream that the bridge joining the mainland to the island that I live on would be exposed to it’s pylons right out to what would normally be the middle of the river. When I saw this 3rd support column from the bank sitting in sand I was horrified and went Oooooo

Bud opening
Isn’t nature just so wonderful!

Sunrise
Oooooo never a same sunrise ever!
