Scenic Sunday - The Bend In The River

The bend in the river reflects the turns we make in life - everchanging and alterable. I never tire of looking at the mighty Yarra - in all seasons there is beauty.

Ten miles down Reedy River
A pool of water lies,
And all the year it mirrors
The changes in the skies,
And in that pool's broad bosom
Is room for all the stars;
Its bed of sand has drifted
O'er countless rocky bars.

I would never get tired of looking at this river, either. What a marvelous shot...a gorgeous place and the rather hazy, pastel colored skyline works perfectly with the flowing water!
