Logan's Inlet Boat Ramp - 2007, 2008, 2010

Three shots of the boat ramp at Logan's Inlet, Wivenhoe Dam.

The first from June 2007 showing a completely dry inlet.

The second from February 2008 after some decent rains that summer showing a return of some water.

And the third from March 2010 when the dam is at around 94% full.

    I just wish I'd taken a copy of the previous photos with me each time I shot so I could have got the same framing... d'oh!
    Sure is!
    Thanks Kath - I have a bit of an affinity with this dam, as my Grandparent's had a property down the road when it was being constructed. I recall the construction work, and drives along old roads now well and truly flooded over.
    I've one more to post too, once I put it together.

    Ha ha ha - thanks for that Dave - been wondering about how the sights out there have changed :-)

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

    Quite a bit - as you can see, you can actually launch a boat on the ramp now ;-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks - sure is good to see water in there again.

    This set of photos is a very good example of the importance of photographers in our society.
    Just learned that Craig's Hut was burned down during Victoria's bush fire. Ken Duncan and several other photographers have been lucky to preserve memories of this infamous hut.
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed!
    Thanks
    Exactly. And that goes for photographing people in the street too - the lives of everyday people are rarely recorded, so it's important that people photograph them too.
    As for Craig's Hut, it's been destroyed before I think. This may have been the 3rd or 4th rebuild of it (possibly more?).

    That's amazing!
    They must have built the ramp before (or when there was now water in the dam at all) the dam was built!
    Good work mate.

    Yes, this is correct.
    Yeah, I also agree, regarding the people and places photos etc.
    Thanks

    Hmm, you know, that never occurred to me, but you're right, it must have been put there on the basis of engineering projections about the water level.
  • anitabromley said:
    I like the fact that with each image that has more water - there are more clouds also (representing more rainfall).
    Great comparison David.

    Thanks Anita. I noticed that too. 'twas quite unintentional at the time of shooting.
