Sunday Selections #219

Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files. 

The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through life.  The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.  Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.

Like River I usually run with a theme.  We have been promised rain and promised rain.  Just after Easter we finally got some wonderful falls.  More fell in a day than the combined total for the preceding four months.

So we headed off to Scrivener Dam to see if there was any overflow from the spillway.

And there was.





While we were out, we headed down to the lake.

And were given a rare treat.  Red-rumped parrots (known to one of my sisters-in-law as bum birds) were having a wonderful time splashing in a puddle on the road.  Some of the photos are blurred - but I have kept them, because it shows the energy they were putting into their bath.  They obviously appreciated the rain as much as we did.






Some of the autumnal colour on the lake was special too.





It really was a lovely outing on a very grey day.

  8. I'm so glad you finally received some good rain down your way, EC. We had good falls up here, too, over Easter. It was great.

    The birds sure did enjoy it, also, by the looks of them.

    I hope you and the Skinny One have a good week ahead...and that the two Js don't over-exert themselves too much...cuddles to them. :)

      A great week to Remy, to Sharma and to you.

  11. Wow, what a dam. Does it used to generate electricity?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Bob Bushell: Not that one. It is really a relatively small dam. And we don't make enough use of hydro-electricity here. A dry continent on the whole, but we could do more. We should do more.

  13. Such a good day! The water-spills are spectacular, the birds gorgeous, and the colours - I've run out of superlatives :) Thank you so much for going to take a look, and letting us see it too!

    I'm interested to see that your autumn colours are more advanced than ours. I've checked our latitude and you are 1 degree further north than us - but I guess it makes a difference that we are very near the sea.

    Have a lovely week!

  18. I don't think I have ever heard of a red rumped parrot before so thank you for bringing that to my attention EC. Canberra sure does Autumn well with its foliage. The lake you refer to is Lake Burley Griffin? The photos offer a different view of the lake to those expansive open vistas.

  19. When I first saw Photo #1, I was like, oh please don't let this be the tale of the broken water line!!

    That's some powerful force of nature - and how smart of you to even think about heading to the dam... Those pictures could have made the cover of the local newspaper!

    By the way, I would talk to the local city council and admonish them for cursing and swearing when they put up signs.

    "Dam History" is just unacceptable :)

    Replies
    1. Mark Koopmans: Our water pressure could never achieve that. Which is probably the first time I have been grateful for its underwhelming nature.
      I am still chuckling at the Dam History comment. It is a literate guvmint though. They would definitely call it Damn History if they were cursing. And it is us more often cursing them...

  23. I LOVE that foamy outpouring of water! Imagine standing under that on a hot day, it would be so invigorating.
    Your autumn colours are spectacular and the red-rump parrots are so pretty. I've never seen those before, didn't even know about them.
    As I type this, I'm hearing an unusual bird call outside. I looked out the door and there is a bird in a tree across the road, so I can't see him clearly, he is long and thin, appears to be light brownish in colour. The call is sort of a singing whistle, I'm not good at describing bird sounds. It's a very pretty sound, and now he is gone.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. River: It is soooo frustrating when you hear a bird call and can't identify who is responsible. How I wish the foamy outpouring was likely to be there on a hot day. In mid summer the water on that side of the day is a trickle. A slow moving sad trickle.

    You can see the happiness with which those beautiful birds enjoyed all that water after it being so dry.

Hell of a dam mind you, wow, I can see why you went down there. Autumnal trees. And here we are just into spring. I can never quite get my head round the differing season on the same planet, but I'm happy to see those amazing colours for sure.
