Mighty Macleay






This morning I realised I didn't have a Sky Watch Friday pic, so I stepped out my front door and saw this Magpie perched up on the electricity pole. Not a cloud in the sky! I really must get out and take some Autumn shots before it is to late.






This landscape is of the mighty Macleay River. The property is Green Oak and I took this shot last Saturday. When the river flooded a few weeks ago, 6 meters of extra water went through. In this photo it is approx half a meter above 'normal'. I can't imagine what 6 meters would be like. In the flood of 1949 water surrounded the house. That is the house in the top right.


If you click on the photo it should come up larger for a closer look :)

Floods are destructive but also bountiful whereas drought is just plain destructive and we seem to be anchore in on, 7th year! Nice to see water and greenery still in existance somewhere on our continent.
