    I think this is very cool - great texture here.
    Nice idea making a panoramic shot like this!

    Great work. Terribly dry ground.

    I like the tall vertical format.

    I had to go hunting for the cracked ground. The first stop I made, it'd rained reasonably recently and so the ground was mushy rather than cracked. Luckily I persevered and came across Logan's Inlet and the large expanses of lovely cracked dried mud.

    Thanks Johnno - not too shabby for the kit lens eh? (would have been better still with better glass, and maybe a little later in the arvo, but one works within the boundaries of ones equipment and time availability).

    Yeah, sometimes you don't have the right light or gear.

    Well, I was just listening to a french tv program mentionning there was a big dryness problem in Australia .....
  • David de Groot said:
    Sure is - well unless you're in the Hunter Valley/Newcastle region or the far north of Queensland, both of which have more than enough water.

    There's been record amounts of rain in June for England & Wales; the city of Sheffield has been cut off! I know that doesn't help you, just thought I'd comment. Scotland has been quite dry though.

    Well just to spite me, it's been raining since Sunday night here. Although, not so much on the dams and really it's steady light rain, not the torrential downpours that the catchment needs.
