Really like this MA. Love the long reflection on the lake. So much more to it than the proverbial sunset photos we see too often.

Wonderful capture MA, frame it!:highfive: As for wanting to go for a swim ... I am not sure what lurks under these waters in Australia ....

Thanks Bambi, HBG and Matt :)

Nothing to fear in those waters Matt. We are waaaaaaay too far south for crocs ... it's a man made, freshwater reserve so no sharks. Never even seen a snake swimming in it ... which is very rare actually. I've only ever seen a land snake swimming once in my life.
Nope ... the biggest risk in there might be a mis-guided pelican. ;)

In that case: I'll go skinny dipping ....

Very serene and lovely. Are those trees growing in the water? Or are they remnants of an earlier time?

Need some 'Pelican Love' do we Matt??? :eek: :laughing:

Foots ... the level of the lake can fall from the current 90% full to below 20% in drier times. Trees grow in those times and get inundated when the levels rise again. :)
