From Bush to Beach

I am taking part in the :

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – DELTA

This week’s challenge calls for a transition such as a river that flows via a delta to the sea. A photo, that perhaps, captures part of a transition or a moment in time without necessarily telling the whole story.

Currarong is a picturesque seaside town on the South Coast of NSW Australia. A week before I captured this photo the coast was battered by high winds and storm surges. The pool in Currarong creek had returned to tranquility but the muddy bank, the broken branches and the vibrant red tannin stain (from tea trees) were testament to the previous turbulent weather.

Looking  to the right of a foot bridge the creek is surrounded by bush but to the left of the bridge the landscape quickly transitions to a sandy shore. The creek morphs to shallow stream flowing to the sea.
