Images of a Big Island

The ‘Wetsundays’

This image pretty much sums up the weather during the past couple of months over here in Qld. Due to a Lá Nina system in the Pacific it has been the wettest spring over here in years! There have been only about 5 days with any sort of sunshine this month and rainfall records have been broken. God knows what it will be like when the monsoon trough starts coming south!
Welcome to the ‘Wetsundays’.
The sugar cane farmers have taken a hit as well with over 25% of the crop left in the ground until next year as the harvesters can’t get into the soaked paddocks.
Meanwhile the SW corner of WA is crying out for rain. Who’d be a farmer?

    Driest winter on record and it is a balmy 36 degrees over here today…not a cloud in the sky!

    As you say…who would be a farmer eh!

    • You can have it all for a while! The one good thing is that the temperatures are quite pleasant so far.

    Looks pretty good to me Tim, I love the drama in the landscape, if anything perhaps a touch of desaturation in the mist may benefit even further ?
    tone 🙂

  3. Thanks Tony, I have desaturated the rain/mist about as far as possible without degrading the image. All done in Lightroom.
