Photographer Lynn Webb writes…

It was evident from the radar that there was to be some serious weather events around the Goldfields today. So why not head out to a favourite location?
 
There were flies, it was hot and it was a hard slog to the top, followed by a couple of hours to wait for the cell to arrive – if it would at all.
 
But it did, but nothing really gelled, just one of those brain fade days for putting things together. 
A hurriedly setup to put a camera out in the tempest, toiling away on its own intervalometer; a ten second exposure every two seconds, and I eventually snagged this one. A worthwhile day after all.

Wet Koala, photo by Russell Latter who writes…The photo was taken at 3pm on Wednesday 14th September 2016 on Old Carey Gully Road in Stirling. I found this wild koala sitting in the road.

He was surrounded by flood waters and so i guided him over a bridge he then went over to the fence post and climbed to the top where the photo was taken.

He then climbed down the other side and walked across a shallow flooded area to a nearby gum tree. He climbed to the top and settled down on a branch for a much earned rest. I went back to check on him today and he was in a nearby tree and snoozing and looking much dryer. So a good story with a happy ending.
