Hi everyone

I thought I would make a topic about the river system/estuary here in Perth.
The visibility is very bad, with a lot of particles in the water, and a lot of people here call it 'dirty'.

Still I think you can find a lot of beauty here, especially in the shallows with low sun.
The watercolour changes throughout the year, from yellow brown to fluorescent green, and in high summer it almost looks like the famous jellyfish lake in Palau because of the huge jellyfish populations.
I have encountered dolphins, prickly leatherjackets and seahorses are not rare! Sometimes you can see 10/20 a time if you look for them.



Here is a selection of photos from the last 2 years, Cheers!
Xander

Mate, they are some of the best Swan River pics I have seen. I really love the Swan for all the critters that you can see in there really is a mixed bag.
