Photographer's Note

The town of Carathool, the subject of my last 2 posts is just a few kilometres from the Murrumbidgee
River, one of the major rivers in New South Wales.
This photo was taken at what is grandly called Carathool "Beach". The beach is just a grassy slope down to the water.
Here you see the main riverside tree of inland south eastern Australia, a River Red Gum. The trees have dense, heavy red timber and used to be popular for building shearing sheds and for furniture. Today the source of the timber for furniture is restricted to logs found under water or to recycled timber.

Best in the large view.
