Sydney has has SO much rain over the past month or so- it really has been a cold and wet summer (hmmf!). It has rained so much that the Warragamba Dam spilled over last night. So i headed on down to the river early this morning, in my waterproof shoes and jacket to take some photos of the rising river.
I can't really remember the river ever being so high (was the late 80's/early 90's) so it was quite fascinating to see the river flowing very fast. There was all sorts of debris- particularly large logs getting dragged by the rampaging current- quite scary when you think about it.
A positive i got from the experience was that lots and lots of people decided to come down and check out the river, was nice friendly atmosphere, people gathering together and saying hello.
