A river view


My place in time #22

This is about as close as you get around these parts to a river. One of the many drains that run through the landscape of this area, apparently 1450 km of drains, with about 500 bridges, draining water to Lake Frome.

One of the many bridges, this one near Southend and the Lake Frome Conservation Park

To see a real river you'd have to drive and hour to Nelson(the Glenelg River), over the border in Victoria, or a few hours to Murray Bridge(the Murray River) towards Adelaide.

  1. It might not be a river but it looks pretty nice. Love the algae lines flowing with the water.

    1. Thanks Leovi :)
      There is a lot of water around at the moment after winter and everything is green. It's all a bit dried up in Summer in the Wetlands, although there is still water flowing in the drain.
