Default Falling Water: Choc Wave

A surf spot we normally check and surf when the swell is on the larger size but not that day. When our drought finally broke and all the Eastern states floods finally swept down the Murray River to the mouth well, as you would expect, a lot of sediment and gunk finally got washed out to sea. I wished I spent more time taking photos on this particular day.

On a clear day you can see as far as the back of your head.

That looks real nasty. Actually during the heyday of sugar cane plantations in Hawaii, the mouths of the rivers on the plantations would look like this after every sugar cane harvest. They used the river delta to discard all the mud and gunk washed off the sugar cane stalks.

Looks really yucky. But cool at the same time, very unusual colors.

Interesting capture... Reminds me of hot chocolate but on a grand scale!
