We have been dancing rain dances in Victoria for so long we stopped believing in them. Now the rains have come and they don’t seem to know when to stop. Our beautiful Yarra River is swollen and wild – roaring along and nearly breaking its banks. The weather is weird. Along with the flooding rain we have wild winds and unseasonal humidity. We are learning to expect the unexpected.

  1. Kirsty – and here, on the other side of the Pacific, in a different hemisphere, we have just had the coolest summer in recent memory. Yes, expect the unexpected.

    This is a seriously cool photo, in black and white, and with a slower speed to smooth out the river. Nice one, Kirsty!

  2. Wow the beauty in this wild and untamed river is quite breath taking! A great shot Kirsty! Incidently – my services are available as rain maker (without the dancing). I have an uncanny knack of making it rain when ever I get time off – (it’s beginning to look like more than a coincidence now)
    Glad you got your much needed rain though.

  3. Oh my!!!! I love the black and white of this image. This is my favorite of the tonal photos thus far. The vertical stature of the trees against the horizontal movement of the water is captivating as is the light/dark contrasts. It’s almost as if the trees are saying, “I can get this water if I drink fast enough!”. Beautiful and captivating, Kirsty.

  4. I love the photo
    what a blessing to have the rain

  5. As cool as it gets, I love it. Yeah, Kirsty.

  6. Somehow those Three Palm Tree Amigos look like cool cats in that raging wild river, it has a great effect.
    Wonderful photo, and yes, the weather is wild!
