We got a heap of rain yesterday afternoon. In fact, according to the Bureau's Rainfall records for the last 5 days, we have received 15mm, 98mm, 40mm, 36mm and 45mm (a total of 234 mm in 5 days). That is over 10 inches in the "old money". The "official" records for Robertson are taken at the Robertson Pie Shop, and show some variation from those figures, but those figures above are for Caalang St, which is closest to my house, and also, closest to the headwaters of Wallangunda Creek, the main tributary of Barrengarry Creek, which flows over Belmore Falls.
So I decided to check to Belmore Falls at lunchtime today. It was certainly running harder, faster and louder today than the other day. So, at the risk of duplicating myself, let me take you there again, today.
This is a panoramic photo (2 merged images), but it is my best so effort so far at performing this trick of blending 2 images. Click on the image to open it to the fullest size which I can safely upload to Blogger.
Please be patient as the image is large, and takes a few moments to download fully. Then you can scroll up and down the entire image, to get the full effect. It is about 2.5 times the height of your screen at full size, but you can really get the impression of how good the Belmore Falls are, at present. It is worth waiting for, I think. The splash from the pool at the foot of this first fall is momentous. And the sound is proportionately loud.
