Brisbane River at Wivenhoe Pocket Rd

This is a stitch of 3 wide-angle shots of the Brisbane River at the Wivenhoe Pocket Road crossing, Fernvale, Qld.

This is the same area I took this shot in, back in 1999.

See where this picture was taken.

    lovely place, amuses me how many UK names you have, for obvious reasons, but wivenhoe is the area telephone code for where my sister lives !
    anyway, theres a few bods messing about in the water so no crocs here then !

    Thanks Cecily.

    Helen, as you stated, obvious reasons :) Wivenhoe in SE Qld is where Brisbane's main water supply comes from (the dam of the same name across the Brisbane River). Wivenhoe Dam is capable of holding 4 times the volume of Sydney Harbour, but due to drought it's currently at something like 30% full :(

    Thanks :)

    I hadn't intended making a stitch when I shot it, just took shots on a tripod pointing in different angles. It wasn't until I got home and looked at them that I noticed they all overlapped and would stitch together nicely.
