Tales of the riverbank

This image was taken in 2007, before the river really began to die in the South Australian drought. At this time it was still viable, full of fish, and a way of life for countless thousands of people who live in the small communities scattered along its length. It's the mighty Murray, which is ... or was ... the life's blood of South Australia. In 2009, the river is crying out to be rescued, and the people of Adelaide are still waiting to see who's going to do the job, and what they're going to do. The image was easy to capture: bright conditions saturated the colors, and the landscape was naturally photogenic. The only work done on it subsequently was cropping to frame exactly the picture I wanted. Photo by Mel, 2007.
