Warrell Creek – Memories. Art Every Day Month November 18

Once again I decided to do something different today because I was going through my photos and found ones I’d taken of Warrell Creek when we were living on the mid-north coast of New South Wales before our move to North Cyprus.

We used to turn off the Pacific Highway to go to Scottshead Beach, a beautiful, virtually unspoilt bay, and on the way would drive along Warrell Creek which ran beside the road.  We turned down to get closer to the creek one day and I took a few photos of views of a river which, on a lovely, sunny, windless day, looked so tranquil and peaceful.

At first I was going to fiddle with one of the photos, then decided that the photo was fine as it was. I simply wanted to share what for me is a very special place but also to let people know that the area from Port Macquarie through to Coffs Harbour has some of the loveliest scenery I’ve seen in Australia. The climate was wonderful, none of the heatwaves you get to the south and north, slightly humid in summer, and lovely bright, sunny days in winter.

Huge rivers run into the sea: Clarence; Richmond; Tweed; Bellinger; Kalang; Nambucca; MacLeay and Hastings. It used to amuse me to see a river the size of Warrell Creek called a “creek” as elsewhere it would be catagorised as a river. And when the summer rains came, the rivers would rise very rapidly and floods were quite common.

Here’s my collage of photos I took that day at Warrell Creek:

  1. I’m not sure why, but this is the FIRST time I’ve been able to leave a comment on your blog. And I’ve been here everyday, too. Now if it will just POST.

    Your photos are stunning. I really enjoy seeing places I will more than likely never visit in my lifetime and these are incredible. You really captured the beauty of the land and the water.

    • Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I shall have to start posting more photos of places I’ve visited, as well as my digital art. I started taking photos in earnest when I got a digital camera in the UK in 2004, it is so much easier and cheaper than the older cameras, plus you can take heaps of photos and sort out which are the best. I didn’t realise how much I love photography until I took a photo at Scottshead Beach of sand, sky and sea. I’ll post that today, it’s one of my favourites – and Scottshead Beach would have to be one of my favourite spots I’ve visited.
