Would LOVE to be on one of those boats right now dear Ian! Is the scene really as peaceful as it looks? Amazing ...

Indeed it is peaceful, Maja, or was that morning. There was a flood in the Mary River but here at the mouth the flood merely appears as brown water, which is evident in the (Mary River) foreground left of the photo.
My ancestors sailed out of the mouth of the Elbe into the great unknown and 4 months later their boat brought them into this estuary and up the Mary River to Maryborough into the great land that they would come to know as the land of eternal summer, where there was no one to call their master, and where they were able to own their own land carve viable farms out of the dense rainforest scrubs....half a world away.
Definitely very well capture my dear Ian, thank you for the explanation.
The near distant, the distant near...

Thank you Fü. Red pomegranates can roll half-way round the world and take root in a new environment! As you have read this area has historical significance for me.
Nice view, like! Best regards, Artem
Welcome to my gallery, Artem. Thanks for the compliment. Warm greetings from Brisbane,
It is a very nice photo. LIKE. Greetings from Poland. Bogdan
Thank you, Bogdan.
My Polish ancestors arrived in Australia by sea in 1866, and they were brought up this river (foreground) by boat to be landed at the frontier port of Maryborough. As they entered this river they passed this green island, and to their excitement and amazement there were quite a number of kangaroos grazing here. The roos would have propped themselves and watched the boat. Up river lay the great unknown that was to be their new homeland.
A very beautiful & amazing photo I like!!! it.well done great composed.with best wishes.
