at the Cotter River, Canberra

On a recent trip to Canberra  to visit my family,  I briefly explored the Cotter River with Judith Crispin. She knew the area well from exploring it photographically whilst working at Manning Clark House, and she kindly  showed me some of her favourite places along the river valley. 

It was an all too  brief visit,  but I  find  the location and the region----- the Namadgi National Park ----very interesting,  and I will certainly revisit it the next time I am in Canberra. The next trip will be primarily a photo trip. 

On this  particular trip I was  focused on photographing the exposed tree roots along the Murrumbidgee River near Hay for the Edgelands project. I had seen them on an earlier trip to Canberra---the Edgeland's exhibition at Manning Clark House---but I didn't have time to photograph them.
