From the mountains to the sea

Over the past few weeks I have criss-crossed the Snowy River, hiking over it as a mere stream on the Main Range, following it south down it’s valley, crossing high above it at McKillop’s Bridge and finally where it meets the sea at Marlo, in Victoria:

Here it is just a gentle stream, about to plunge down into the valley below and through the Main range:

I’m not really a fan of HDR images, but I thought I would give it a go here, as there was just too much dynamic range in the scene, even using a graduated filter to darken the sky.

And finally it meets the sea at Marlo:
