I have been so slack with posting on Blogger of late... so much going on, and I have had no motivation to post or take photos. I hope that will change as this year I really will need my photography outlet (more on that in the next week). This post was prepared a couple of weeks back but I never hit the publish button.
Here are a couple of shots I took in July 2012... look how low the water is (usual high tide), compared to the next pics taken in 2012.
Here are some more shots of the same area, from the recent Brisbane floods.
We also took a drive out to a rural area south of Brisbane where the Logan River burst it's banks. There was flooding on major roads cutting off townships.
This is Logan Reserve Road where the State Emergency service (SES) had a boat ready to take anything needed to the affected homes. While we were there they took off with a generator for a family who had no power. Almost 3000 homes were affected by the Logan River flood and were also without power for quite a few days.
The SES are an amazing bunch of people. Their tireless work in times like these is amazing!!
This is also Logan Reserve Road, but from the other side of the flood waters...
On the way home we took an alternat route to the highway, which was also in flood.
Although the flood waters have receded across SE Queensland, the clean up will continue for quite some time.
