Beauty or Beast????
It has been quite a while now since the January floods, and I don't mean to open old wounds. I've had this photograph for quite a while and really wanted to share it with everyone. It was taken by a friend of mine, as she was flown around the district by helicopter. Even though it reminds me of so much destruction, I can't help but see the beauty in it. This is a bird's eye view of the river country on the property where we live [and neighbouring properties as well]. You cannot see the property houses, they are hidden by a dark tree line just in from the left side of the frame [the photograph was taken in fading light]. The building you can see is one of the neighbouring property sheds. The house is also there, hidden by trees. They are approximately six kilometres from us as the crow flies. I hope you can see how the river meanders sharply on it's journey - the 'river proper' is rather insignificant when compared to 'the overflow'!! We are going to have this made up into a larger photograph and framed to remind us that when it rains, well, it pours.
