Before and After
February 21, 2011Posted by on
To demonstrate the effect of both drought and floods on our landscape, here are a couple of before and after shots. The first photo is a shot of the Wimmera River in a town called Jeparit, in north west Victoria, taken on 30 May 2008. Followed by a photo of exactly the same spot, taken on 8 February 2011.
The trees are still dead, but they’ll probably come back in a few months. I plan to go back in Spring and see how they’re doing.
Next is a shot of Four Mile Beach, a popular camping and swimming spot on the shores of Lake Hindmarsh, which is Victoria’s largest fresh water lake. Again, the first photo was taken on 30 May 2008, and shows the lake as completely dry. The second photo was taken on 8 February 2011, and shows the effects of three months of flooding rain in the region.
