We pass it every now and again when we travel north and it signifies we’re almost home. People tell mysterious stories about where all the water went and eerie happenings from the past that occurred on the land. But since moving south of Goulburn with a view of this expansive lake, I have a new appreciation for how beautiful Lake George really is.
‘Weereewa’ is a festival celebrating Lake George and the surrounding landscape running this February and March. While looking at the program (http://weereewafestival.org), I came across David Flanagan’s photography. In 2005/06 he did a series in which he photographed Lake George from the air. The resulting images are stunningly beautiful and really do uphold the Lake’s mysterious reputation. The little water that was in the lake at the time forms intricate patterns and shapes creating very textural and organic images. The bird’s eye view gives a totally different perspective of Lake George.
You can see more of David’s work during the festival at the Bungendore Woodworks Gallery along with other artists also inspired by this beautifully mysterious Lake.
