Watery Wednesday ~ 13 Spring on the Murray River

Please enlarge for more fun viewing!

Spring time on the Murray River from the bridge
near Jingellic



here the river is the boundary between Victoria
and New South Wales. The Willows on the bank are
just greening up




side pools with reflections and an old tree casting shadows.



Plum blossom on the bank to show that Spring has arrived.



A Gum tree (Eucalyptus) keeping his toes cool and his
head above the water.

Thanks 2seetnsaxy for this very wet meme.

  1. Ah, Spring! I'd love to float down that river and enjoy more of the beauty. Although I see from the side pools the water can be less serene. Excellent post with your delightfully flowing words and great captures.
    I will visit your country someday.

    I would never reject what you say. Never. I will ponder it, but I certainly would never reject it.

  7. That river is very beautiful. I have never seen a gum tree before. It sure knows how to survive.

  16. I love the shadows and the distant hills in the watery photos! Here in Canada, with the summer beginning to wind down, it is hard to remember plum blossoms!

  17. I was working but I was also thinking about art and about these artists trading cards and exchanging artwork and I thought to myself "I wonder if I draw something for her, will she send me an autographed 8x11 print of one of her photographs that I like?"

    But now that I said it, I just want to let you know that I hate deadlines with my art.

  18. See, that's it. Just when I tell myself that I have picked my favorite you come along with another fabulous one, still I would like one to keep me company 9in my office where I am surrounded by the artwork of my children and of bella Sinclair. Now a photograph of Arija will make it perfect and I will gaze at it during my most stressful moment and a smile will flash across my face.

  27. It is so good to see some water hanging around the Murray plus some Spring blossoms. So many parts of this once mighty river are in crisis!

  29. I did not know there was another name for the Eucalyptus tree.

    Your eye never ceases to amaze me. I feel like I am really there experiencing this lovely river in Wales.

    Thanks for giving me a peek at another part of the world.

  36. Spring is so inviting to all who have lasted throughout the winter, although I think you mentioned your winter doesn't last that long. . I bet you are so glad to see lots more green now. Enjoy!
