Leaves, Trees and Branch

I am doing a combination of photo challenges. These photos are for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Leaves or Trees and the Daily Post word prompt: Branch

Again I have been experimenting with what my Canon Powershot can do as well as utilising some features of my photo program Corel Paintshop Pro 2018. I hope you like the results of what my camera and I can do to enhance my experimental photos

This is the original photo

The Force of Water

Frank from Dutch goes the Photo word prompt: Forces

Near my property, sometimes the Clarence River rages when the rains are here and the rivers flow is enhanced. The Clarence River at Lilydale can flow at a sedate 8mgs/day and sometimes a summer flow may get to 12,000mgs/day. Today after some considerable rain fall, the river is flowing at over 20,000mgs/day.  When the flood waters hit the river levels rise to over 100,000mgs/day. Once the flood flows reach Grafton, they can be at 5,000,000mgs/day

Here are some flood flows showing the forces of water in action.

The Clarence River at Lilydale on a lovely day. The river is a bit higher than normal flow.

A minor flood flow. The bridge was constructed low so when flood flows occur, the rivers debris doesn’t impact on the bridge.

This is a bit of a lower flow. The water is making waves as it flows over the  old wooden bridge.

The Bottlebrush trees are able to withstand the flood flows as the have supple trunks and bend with the flow.

Yes. That is 4 meters above the level of the bridge

Square March – number 2

The tiled floor in the Christ Church Cathedral in Grafton has given me a few #MarchSquares. I featured the Cathedral in a recent post here

Look Becky, a square in a square in a square within a square. Can anyone top that?
