  • Gilbert River, NW Queensland


    G'day all

    Spent a night on the banks of this (sometimes) mighty river ... when in flood it is 200m wide and the road-flood markers suggest that it might break its banks by up to 6 metres over the bridge, which itself was 3m above current waters

    1)- Looking north

    2)- Looking south

    exif- Panny FZ-2500; 1/400s x F4,0; +CPL; ISO-125; lens at 2x zoom / 40mm FFequiv

    3)- the 200m long single-lane bridge over the river

    exif- Panny FZ-2500; 1/1300s x F4,0; ISO-125; lens at 3x zoom / 70mm FFequiv

    ps- these (many) one-lane bridges across outback Qld come with 2-way radio call-posts about 1/2-kilometre beforehand, asking heavy and/or large vehicles to radio-in alerting others to their presence. Still though there are too many city slickers without 2-way radio 'because this stuff does not concern me, I just have a caravan' ... not realising that the 4wd+caravan can be 10-12m long x 2+metres wide

    As always, feedback welcome
    Phil

    Outback at its best Phil. Lovely shots. The river looks as though it could handle a bit more rain before getting to the bridge.

    I dusted once and it came back. I'm not falling for that again!
    I never make the same mistake twice. I do it like, five or six times, you know, to make sure.

      Nice shots Phil. #2 is my pick here because of the contrast of the water with the sand and the shapes they form. It looks like it would be impressive when flowing strongly.

        Thanks fellas ... and yes, the CPL has made the colours deeper. I think "when it is flowing" might also be a crappy time weather-wise, but not being a local, I dunno!
