at the Cotter River, Canberra

August 27, 2015

On a recent trip to Canberra to visit my family, I briefly explored the Cotter River with Judith Crispin. She knew the area well from exploring it photographically whilst she had been working at Manning Clark House; and she kindly offered to show me some of her favourite places along the valley of the Cotter River.

It was an all too brief visit, but I find both the river valley and the region around it—– the Namadgi National Park —-very interesting; and I will certainly revisit both the next time that I am in Canberra. The plan is for the next trip to be primarily a photo trip.

On this particular trip I was more focused on photographing the exposed tree roots along the Murrumbidgee River near Hay so that I could to continue to build on the river section of the Edgelands project. I had seen the exposed roots of the river gums on an earlier trip to Canberra—the opening of the Edgeland’s exhibition at Manning Clark House—but I didn’t have time to photograph them then.
