An image from July of 2006 showing the Tamar in winter, my apologies for dredging up older photos, perhaps on my return from Western Australia I will see what new images I have to offer.

The Tamar Estuary is one of the major estuary systems of the southern Australian marine faunal region. It is the estuary of the North Esk and South Esk Rivers which combine at Launceston, over 63 km from Low Head, where it enters Bass Strait. It is tidal for its whole length, with a 3.5-metre tide occurring twice a day in Launceston. The general habitat structure of the estuary has been significantly altered since first European settlement. This has been brought about by dredging, the construction of jetties and the introduction of several alien species, such as rice grass and Pacific oysters. Nevertheless, the natural status of the estuary can be rated as good, with much less of the industrial development than is seen in many major estuaries around the world.

Wahhoo you made it :-)

And what a stunning shot you posted to herald your return.. please don't appologise for posting an old image, who cares how old this is. It is absolutly stunning. really sharp, very nicely balanced with good colour and fab reflections.. this is like an oil painting and for me easily 10 points.

So glad you got the browser issue sorted

kind regards Helen

I like the bands formed by the foreground, subject and sky, although perhaps more foreground would have been more balanced. Looking at this there is another image here using a zoom to use the first boat as the foreground.
