Even in destructive floods, beauty can be found by 

Image of flood waters covering the land just down the road from my place in north central Victoria Australia caused by the torrential rains (8 inches (200mm) in a few days) swelling creeks and rivers to beyond major flood levels. But even in the face of destruction you can find beauty.

    This is a beautiful shot Clive. The flooding up here in Qld is all brown and muddy, no such pretty reflections up here. The clean up is underway, with thousands of volunteers helping, its so amazing to see everyone in high spirits after what has happened.

  • So appreciate your wonderful compliment Kathie, my thoughts are with all those up north that have suffered. Heard today that one of the big reservoirs not that far from here has possible stress fractures in the wall, that’s all we need.
    Take care up there my friend xx
