Shooting the Murray River rapids..



The point of entry for the white water rafters into the Murray River running through Lane Poole Reserve looks calm enough...


.. until the pull of the current draws them over the edge!


Up to now you may not have thought these rapids were up to much but I think the perspective in the pics below gives you some idea of their size and rough and tumble! There was much hootin' and hollerin' from all on board as they went over, leading me to believe that it could have been an exhilarating experience.. standing on the edge of the rocks here was all the excitement I needed :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  5. Not I in that situation either, PDP. I resorted to counting them. I hope nobody popped out. How exciting it must be though!

  9. These are fantastic photos! I'm really getting the excitement at all that splashing around. However, like you, I'm just as glad to view it from the sidelines. I'll take their word for it if they say it was fun.

  11. Now the river looks normal. Well, maybe a bit crowded in the rafts and with more than one raft out. In any case I'm sure it was a fun adventure.

  12. Gee Grace, pity about your knee. You could have joined them. It looks.....ah, exhilarating.

  13. Yes, those rapids look like they mean business. There are some scary looking rocks there. I did that once in my younger days. It's fun if you've got a guide who knows what they're doing.

  18. When I'm on dry land, I always feel I'd like to do that, but I think I'd back out before actually stepping into the boat. These are great photos. Lots of white water rafting here in Canada especially in the spring when the snow melts and the rivers are running high.

  20. Not for me either, "just" taking photos would make my day too ;)
    Your images show lots of excitement!

  21. Looks like crazy fun to me. I sort of feel like I would like to try but think I would chicken out if it came to the crunch!!! Glad that you stayed on to take the photos. Cheers Diane
