Cee’s fun foto challenge Winter – Water
Looking through my photos, my winter photos don’t really reflect winter at all. I guess winter here isn’t the same elsewhere. I don’t get snow, only two or three frosty days and it rarely gets to 0 degrees. So I am just doing water for this challenge.
I like to photograph water especially when there are interesting reflections on the waters surface.
The sunset adds to the wonderful colours.
The ripples and colours make a certain mysterious affect.
And sometimes a ghostly visage makes an appearance

Every now and then the part of Australia I live in has floods. The Clarence River can be spectacular when the floodwaters come. This is the River gauge showing how high the water rises.
Here are what some buildings look like. This is the tower on top of the boat shed.
At least it is dry in the pub
Here are the steps going up to the pub when the water isn’t covering them. The bottom of the steps are about 1 meter above normal river level.
This what the Clarence River looks like near my place many kilometers upstream
The floodwaters empty into the ocean creating foam that washes onto the beaches and rocks.
