The reflection of the bright blue sky on a river of muddy floodwaters has created the interesting colour in the river.

Thanks for your visit and comment, brezzinka.

Did you take this photo from a plane? Great landscape. In northern Italy is easier to see a landscape like this: corn tunnel! Greetings from Italy, Luca

Ian Stehbens on September 16, 2008

Yes Luca, from a Cessna.

Out here if you start walking a corn tunnel you will get utterly lost for the rows may be 4kms long. The only thing to do is to follow the row to the end and hope that you recognise the landscape! And it can get dangerous if the brown snakes are out and about!

Thanks for your visit to my gallery and for introducing me to yours though the corn tunnel.

Greetings to the Plains of Lombardy from the Cumberland Plain (Sydney).

Wow, I forget that Australian snakes are the most dangerous of the world... and Italian fields are rarely very long. You've got a good gallery.

Thanks for the compliment on my gallery. I am really pleased when others get pleasure from it. Have you been to Australia, Luca? Or have you plans? Don't worry about the snakes unless you want to run the length of corn tunnels on a summer's night!


Luca Rigato on September 17, 2008

No, I don't have plans to go to Australia. It's too expensive, but who knows... maybe someday in the future I'll come to visit your beautiful land! If I'll ever come to Australia I'll never run through corn tunnels!
