    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.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    Wonderful capture MA, frame it! 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???

    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.
