Reposting Weekend Wanderings – Cairn Curran Reservoir

Today I am reposting a Weekend Wandering post from 2016 about Cairn Curran Reservoir. It is a place I’ve visited a few times over the years.

Reposting Weekend Wanderings – Cairn Curran Reservoir

Cairn Curran is a place I have visited quite a few times, but this last time was a little different. Well, not quite. I’ve been back since thing, but I’ve never seen it like the first visit again. I keep hoping for it to be like that again.

I’m reposting this Weekend Wandering post because I haven’t been out anywhere. My camera is really dirty and I need to get it cleaned. It is still under warranty and I’ve noticed my flash doesn’t work on it, so I need to get that looked into as well. One of my lenses is a bit out of wack as well, so they will look into that too. I’ve booked it into Camera Clinic in Collingwood and they said I could be without it for a week. I might have to get the D800 out and blow off the dust.

So today, we are visiting Cairn Curran Reservoir again. I hope you enjoy seeing again.

First Visit

First let’s take a look at the first time I went there.

Second Visit

This is from the second visit.

Third Visit

I seriously thought there would never be any water in it again. However, this year we have had so much rain, and there has been lots of flooding. So take a look at it now.

It is incredible how much water there is. See the one of the track, well in the top gallery first image with the sheep on the track, it is the same one. ¬†Water, water, water everywhere. You can’t see the rail viaduct that I have photographed before at all. The pylons are completely underwater. I wonder if I will ever be able to photograph those pylons again.

I took a little video, I hope you can hear the frogs, they were so loud.

  1. Water is good! They say we may have a warm, dry winter. Not good for the forest fires. At least we had 2 years of heavy rainfall.
