Artist's Description

© 2011 Chris Armytage, Fine Art Photography, Daylesford, Victoria, Australia.


Hurrah for the laughing water,

The songs that the streamlets sing!

Whish! The teal duck’s mate has sought her

With a stroke of his mottled wing!

Hurrah for the deepening shadows,

The ibises eagle-eyed,

The dash of the purple swallows,

To bury their breasts in the tide!

Woe! It is woe to the Drought-King’s reign!

The water is out in the swamps again!

- “The Filling of the Swamps”
Will H. Ogilvie, B. Scotland 21.8.1869 to 1963

A celebration of the breaking of the drought

Photograph taken at my favourite waterhole near Franklinford, Victoria, Australia, with a Canon EOS 450D, layered with textures from my own stock photography in Photoshop CS3.
