The subject of today’s photo is a shot i took in January 2009 when the Craigborne Dam in the Coal River Valley, East of Hoabrt was declared empty. The original river bed and an old bridge that crossed the river were visible as the water level dropped.
Today things have changed thanks to some healthy winter rainfall and the level is back up when i took this photo earlier in the week …

Today is the first of the month and City Daily Photo theme day with this month’s theme “Feet” Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.
I thought ofr this month i would go for something a little different and chose the flippers instead. They are part of a collection of statues on the waterfront at Hobart to commemorate the historic links between the Port of Hobart, The Southern Ocrean and Antarctic.
Hobart maintains this link today being the home port of Australian and French Antartic operations.
And before i forget, more than just the feet or flippers.

This is the Church at Port Arthur, South East of Hobart. The foundation stone of the Church was laid in 1836 by Lieutenant Governor Goerge Arthur and was constructed by convict labour and the stonework prepared by the boys from the Boys Prison at nearby Point Puer.
The first service was held in 1837 and was used by faiths from several different denominations.
The Church had a wooden steeple which blew down during a gale in 1876 and in 1884 sparks from a fire lit to clean up around the nearby Parsonage caught the wooden shingles on the Church. Despite hte efforts of the local residents, the church burnt to the ground.
This is my contribution to the City Daily Photo monthly theme day “Glass”, only i have taken a different approach in that in this case it is the absence of glass as along with the building the stained glass was also destroyed. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
