As I mentioned in my notes here I had planned a walk through the 'Gorge' to see how much more water was flowing through the valley. I missed the minor flood but the day was pleasant although cool. The bed of the valley when not flooded is covered with these beautiful moss and lichen covered rocks.

PP Work...colour fade control (default), added border and resized.

The river flows at its own sweet will, but the flood is bound in the two banks. If it were not thus bound, its freedom would be wasted.

Hi Dave,
Looks wild and desolate. Good tight composition, I would very slightly saturate the colours in this one.

Hi David. Another good natural setting well composed. It shows that sometimes wild river water flows through here. The principle of uniformitarianism states that the geologic processes observed in operation that modify the Earth's crust at present have worked in much the same way over geologic time.
I worked in Tassie in the early 70's and enjoy see the wild nature of some areas there. Well presented. tfs. Murray.

Hi David,
Lovely image of nature! I love the big boulders, they look as though they've been thrown there!! The moss and lichen on the rocks are lovely and the natural colours are so Australian! Looks a lovely spot to visit, well done and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

Hello David.
Well seen and captured, the nice composition and the excellent colors and clarity, make a very pleasant image, TFS.

Lovely to see the plants growing here. Looks like heather too?? Or gorse? Ozzy colours though, nice one!

A rocky basin, wonderful place for hiking. Clear, and very natural shot. TFS

Hi David,
I like a lot the careful composition, it looks as if you positioned each of those moss covered boulders like in a zen-garden.

Beautiful capture. God sharpness and details.
Not a very good place to take a walk though :-).
Unless you have mountain goat blood running in your veins.

Hi David,
It's very interesting to see that the flood waters didn't wash away the vegetation, it adds such a splash of color to the rocks. It amazes me to see so many and so many different sizes, we have no rocks or boulders around here. Great textures, pov and clarity, thanks for sharing,

Hi David, wow, no nice! I like very much pictures of minerals and vegetation! It is always a winner! Nature does it so well! And you too!

Take care, Yan :)
ps: many thx for your critique on "2007 Ottawa Jazz Festival".

Hi Dave very wild area good details nice compo tfs cheers shimon

Nice work with textures and colors in a soft, but yet very clear and crisp rendering.

Hello David,

I find beautiful of as the moss I colored the stones, they give a life air still even in the drought he stays beautiful decorating this whole granite of these stones. For the vegetation I still see that there is plenty of humidity for oh, because they are beautiful. big visual!

Hello David
So you were looking for gold nuggets in this dried river, but instead you encountered a newly-grown greenery that soon will take over the boulders!
Consequently, we are ritcher of another beautiful scenery!
