Photographer's Note

The Murrumbidgee river flows from the Snowy Mountains down into the Murray river and then into the sea in South Australia. The distance from this point on the river to the sea is 1360km.
This photo was taken near the Yanga shearing shed outside Balranald. Paddle steamers used to come to this point to pick up wool bales.
The trees are River Red Gums (a eucalypt). The paddle steamers used to use wood gathered along the rivers to use for fuel. The timber is extremely hard and durable and was popular for building shearing sheds. I have a dining table made from timber recycled from an old shearing shed - it is mighty heavy.

Do view the large version.
