Murrumbidgee floods, Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia, 6/12/10. Normally a path under the bridge leads to a walk along the banks of the river, here the flood at its peak has totally covered the path and the walk as it spreads out on both sides, reaching new heights not seen since the 1991 floods. Nikon D300, 10-20 Sigma

An amateur, but a long love of photography. A recent move to digital has seen the love ‘blossom’, and a greater enjoyment in the field. I will try most forms of photography, and gain both knowledge and fun out of the experimentation. Using a Nikon D300 and D7000, with a range of lenses, and filters. I hope you enjoy the views as much as I’ve enjoyed taking them.

    Nice capture Baz – the colour of the brickwork really adds to this!

  • thanks heaps Lori. Yes, it goes down to about the end of the rocks then curves under the bridge – well under water.

    The path leads into the murky waters. Makes one wonder what a walk on the path may have been like. Heading to Wagga today so i may see some of the damage.

  • Thanks Gail. Normally it’s a very nice walk along the river banks. The damage is still evident. We’re away at the moment, on the coast for a break.

    We actually have sunshine today in sunny Queensland after days and days of low cloud and foggy rain

    Nice shot Barry these images are marking a major event in a cyclic weather history

  • thanks Kym. yes it’s so extreme all over the place and so changeable! They were predicting more flooding in Wagga in the New Year, so don’t think we’ve seen the end of all this.

    Good capture of how swollen the rivers are. The January floods happened when I was overseas and I kept up to date with the devastation. It was unbelievable. A land of extremes for sure

  • Thanks Robyn. Yes, it has certainly been extreme. This was the last of three floods we had last year, and the worst with a lot of damage around the region. My brother from NZ sent me an Aussie weather map – flooded for the east coast, too …. hot, for the middle, and on fire for the west coast – seemed to sum it all up.
