Low Water.

As Australia is experiencing one of its toughest droughts, I thought that I would show these two photos of the River Murray at Mannum South Australia.

The first photo was taken in mid 2005 with a reasonable amount of water in the river. Compare it to the photo below which was taken two years later and check the difference.

This photo was taken mid 2007 and shows how the lower water level of the main river is starting to have an effect on the flood areas to the side.

Although I have never seen it looking like this before, it makes us appreciate what it should be like and can only hope that in time, it returns to it's natural water level.
