South Australia- A proposed weir downstream from Wellington may further affect water quality at the Murray River...that is, what is left of the water. A striking and painful image of a lagoon near Mannum taken mere weeks ago by acclaimed landscape photographer David Evans stands alongside the same image he took in
October 2005; http://tinyurl.com/d2ksyv

Evans captured the tortured landscape this month when he was looking for a rural-based landscape for an upcoming photo shoot. In less than four years, the once majestic and glowing Murray River image is now a muddy grave. Evans provided the image to The Advertiser, who ran both photographs on the newspapers’ front page 6 May alongside a story on The Murray-Darling Basin Authority and the proposed weir.

David Evans landscape images have been highly awarded across Australia, and his works can be found at eye2eye Art Gallery at Level 1, 260 Rundle Street in Adelaide, including the “Murray River” photograph from October 2005 with artist editions available for purchase.

As for the Murray River proposal, “weir” hoping that David Evans’ image helps put a further spotlight to protect this national treasure.
