Flour Mill, from the river bed.

The Mighty Avon River or more specifically, the town pool in Northam WA reached an all time low depth a couple of weeks ago just before the big storm that created havoc around some areas of Perth hit.  I took this once in a decade or so opportunity to take some careful steps out into the river bed to shoot the historic flour mill from a different perspective. the light was fairly ordinary so I tried blending a few different exposures to create this image. Another one for the Old Flour Mill collection.

    Wow, nice photo, I’ve never seen it that low! 3 words come to mind on this summer, hottest, driest & longest. That’s a good angle too, one I’ve not seen before. Mind you, you should be under water! I’d like to see how many entrants they’d get if the Avon Descent was run at the end of March!

      Yeah it would be more like the Henley on Todd in Alice Springs if they did that, The old bottomless canoe would be handy.

      Thanks for the comment Matt.

    Nice shot, I can see that becoming a shire icon image.

      So can I, But I think the Northam shire might think other wise. Cheers Paul.

    Nice shot. It’s good to get a shot of something historical at a different angle.

    Is there any water in it after the rain?

    Forecast here tomorrow is for 250mm rain, should get the odd stream running.

      Yeah it came up pretty quick after the storm, It’s given the ducks and swans something to swim in again. A bit of funny story as far as the river drying out as well. I’ll fill you in when you get back, if you are coming back and don’t end up drowning.
