My horse and I, first ride back after a few months of drama for my horse with a foot abscess.
Birds on the wetlands. A few weeks before this photo was taken this whole area would have been under a good few feet of water.
Sunset one afternoon down at the station.
First crossing of the river for the 2011 dry season. Yes, there are very big crocodiles in this river! This river, during the 'wet season' floods and is part of what cuts us off for 4-6 months of the year, the other part that cuts us off is the wet lands before this river.
I do have a photo somewhere taken from the air of the wetlands and the river all linked up but can't remember where I've saved it.
We don't have the normal Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring seasons like the rest of the country has. We have the Wet season (December - April) Dry Season (April - September) then the Build Up (September - December). The Wet Season is pretty much just massive monsoonal rains and storms. Dry Season is obviously no rain but the weather is just gorgeous. The Build Up is the worst time of year in this part of the country as it is just horrendously hot and humid with massive banks of clouds that doesn't produce much in the way of rain. There are a few other little 'transition type seasons in there but they're the main ones.
