Still up the creek without a paddle!!!


The cliff face is beautifully textured from the rushing water,

.....which has eroded the banks,

.....and even unearthed a WWII Japanese tunnel.

A really fantastic series of images. The power of the earths forces are stunning, and these photos really show the evidence.

Kelly said...

Amazing series of photos! Very well done!

Bergson said...

An excellent report which makes us in travel for some days

It must take a scary amount of water to do that to rock, Jules.
Any chance of you hiking back up there in the rainy season and photographing the waterfall?

Old Wom Tigley said...

What an interesting place to explore Jules.. The power of the water is very evident there

I made it this morning to look at your post and then I am off for a lung test.

I hope to be finished with all tests and back to normal by the 12th or soon thereafter.

Your photograph is really nice, as usual.

Hi All

Dive - i do think that a helicopter would be the only way in the wet!!! Swimming or driving would be well and truly out of the question - althogh quite exciting.....and fatal!!!!

Abe - you must be all test-out!!! Hope all is well.

dive said...

So you'll not be paddling down the rapids in your outrigger, then?
Oh, well.

Jules said...

Dive - the outrigger idea is a good
one if you wanted to ensure a spot in the 2008 Darwin awards!!!

I'd love a drive up a dried-up river bed like this, so long as it didn't suddenly start raining!

'struth, J: this blog gets nastier and nastier by the day! How do you keep it up? ;-)

BTW...foxes? They are not wild. These are very elegant and "reefained" urbanites who go with impunity. Some people love them, others 8%@**"! And at night, screaming and mateing in your garden they are the bl***y end mate!!!!! The fox knows where he is best off: in town, not in the countryside.

Amazing, once again. Can we have a mouth-watering beach at some point too? I adore where you live; it's so interesting.

I can imagine how dangerous this place would be in full flood, but how amazing it would be to see it.
And the Japanese tunnel. There must be a lot of history to be unearthed in there.

Must be time to show Lynn some beach shots; the sun is out in Gloucestershire. You know what the Brits do at the first rays of sun in Springtime !!!

Kelly said...

Thank you, Jules, for visiting and for your very kind comments! I am glad I got to come back and look at these photos again today! I really enjoyed them!

Squirrel said...

rich said...

Interesting stuff, Jules :-)

Jules said...

Hi fellow bloggers - thanks for your comments

M B - I know what they do - they take their clothes off and go lie in the park!!!

Lyn - I have a pile of beach shots - stay tuned I will find a couple of good ones that will make your mouth water - will post them on Sunday!!!
