I always love this view from high up over the Nambucca River, not far from where I live. Nambucca is from the Aboriginal word for 'crooked river' and this is taken near the river's entrance into the sea. At low tide, which was about an hour away when this picture was taken, many sand bars are exposed. On the far bank, you can see the white trunks of a paperbark forest. In the distance is the Great Dividing Range that runs almost the entire length of the east coast of Australia. For 25 years I lived on top of that range in a cold, frosty, snowy place. Now I'm warming my bones down on the coast and I must say it was a good move.
