A major river diversion project has dumped a huge amount of rocks and cement into the river at a location called Pearce Estate Park, in order to channel the water into a less swift and dangerous stream. It has made the area look as if rocks were being planted instead of plants. Strangely beautiful.

Thanks for pointing that out. I think I edited the photos and then reposted in Flickr so lost the image location URLs.

Huh! It IS kinda ... well not beautiful as much as ... interesting perhaps I think. Changing the course of a river is a bold move.
