The salty remains in a back water lagoon off the River Murray, Lyrup, South Australia. Access to this area is next to the Ferry at Lyrup.

The drought continues to effect this mighty river….

Even though sections are in trouble the main parts of the river continue to survive and the communities along them need our support! There is still plenty of water in the river main and lots of activities to be had.

Canon 400D 18 – 55 lens with polarising filter. 3 shot HDR in Photomatix.
