#12 Drifter

I’m joining Becky in her February Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Odd, referencing one of these definitions: different to what is usual or expected, or strange; a number of items, with one left over as a remainder when divided by two; happening or occurring infrequently and irregularly, or occasionally; separated from a usual pair or set and therefore out of place or mismatched. Look for #OddSquare.

While we didn’t travel as much as usual in 2021, we were fortunate to enjoy several holidays in our home state of Queensland and one short trip over the border in New South Wales. Join me this month in a retrospective look at the very odd year of 2021. 

Yetman NSW, February 2021

The morning after the storm, the only sign of nature’s light and sound show was a dramatic rise in the river. The branches of the willow trees now dipped down into the water, and the spot on the bank where the men were standing as they fished the previous day had disappeared.

As we surveyed the scene, a lone boat appeared around the bend of the river. With no one to guide it, the current took the boat past us and, as quickly as it had come it was gone, drifting downstream.

I wonder where it ended up.

  1. that’s a lot of water overnight! It is very noticeable in Portugal in the hills that there are never any dwellings on the waters edge. They are always up the hill slightly, a reflection that the water levels once rose rapidly before all the dams
