Mannahill Creek

Mannahill Creek
Best viewed on black. In the 1880s, the Broken Hill Proprietary Company (usually now known just as BHP) built a railway from their mine at Broken Hill to their smelter and port at Port Pirie. Mannahill is somewhere along the rail line (and now also a road). This is the creek in the area: those are ghost gums alongside the watercourse, with saltbush beyond.

o0o always I look to the far horizon to see the view ;-) its rare we really can see for so
far like this ... and so its a pleasure to see ... and your trees your "gums" are so unusual
and not like anything I have seen before ... I like the shadows too and seems the earth
is a little damp ... there will be a reason no doubt ... ;-))) and possibly not just rain ...
does it come from the trees (gums) I wonder ? I don't have a clue and guess you are
having a chuckle at what I'm writing ;))) hehehe I don't mind ;-) watercourse and saltbush
the names intrigue me o0o

Thanks, Bev. 'watercourse' is the 'creek': either dry (as here) or a 'banker' (as in "flowing briefly and across the countryside"). Welcome to Oz, where water is scarce and this is as dry as .... Saltbush is that low shrubbery that has the ability to survive in areas of under 100 mm (a few inches) of rain annually. Just don't be in or near the creekbed when it rains!

How red the earth seems, the colours in total are restful, aided by those gum trees and the shrubs beyond.

A beautifully composed shot. The track really leads the eye in in a tantalising way.

That isn't a track, Jean - that's the way creeks look out here except on the rare occasion when there's some water. :)

Sorry ! I should have engaged by brain when I read the information. We have the opposite problem here. Tracks quite often turn into watercourses !

I'm afraid I can't tell you the name of the ore, but it's a mix of silver, lead and zinc.
