Aerial Photograph Of Flooded Farm

Today I was able to purchase an aerial photograph of our farm in the flood.

The photograph was taken on the 28th June 2007 which was two days after the initial flood. The photograph shows some of the land immediately surrounding our farmhouse standing in water. As you can see the lefthand side of the photograph which is where my veg patch and poultry hut are located is sitting in deep water. The paddock is completely flooded as is the barn that is home to our straw bales. The back field also has patches of flood water on it although the cattle have managed to find some dry land to settle on.

I thought this was an interesting photograph which in time will depict a moment of history.
