By the River
July 27, 2017

I am working on a new collage which is still to be finished, so I trawled through photographs of former holidays. I thought you might like these shots of river scenes taken in 2009 when I journeyed to Cobram and Numurkah in northern Victoria.

 

This is the Murray River near Cobram.

River Red Gums are typical of the adjoining flood plain.

Broken Creek wanders through Numurkah.

 

 

 

More River Red Gums. They can grow to enormous spreading trees. They need a good, flooding soaking from time to time to thrive.

Charcoal Drawing: Numurkah

China blue sky,

The distant sounds of children at school,

Numurkah dreams in the warmth of the afternoon.

Numurkah is a small, rural town in northern Victoria. The land is irrigated to support fruit growing, dairying and grazing.

Broken Creek, Numurkah

A glorious day!

The coot bob on the water honking to each other

The warm sun dapples the river

The green aquatic plants glow

How blessed am I!

Broken Creek, Numurkah, 30th April 2009 

The Eurasian Coot is a small water bird common in Australia.

The first picture was drawn with soft pastels. The second picture is based on the same river scene. It combines knitting and painting.
