Lake George in Others' Eyes - Pictures [DRAFT]

Lake George. A popular name. There are a number around the world. We have a few (4) in Australia, but I think the most famous, or notorious, is the one in NSW, near Canberra. Tho' as one of its photographers on Flickr says: "traditional definitions of 'lake', 'river', and the like don't really hold in Australia". Lake George's Geomorphology; A brief but clear description down near the end, around Figure 7. (In the context of the detailed broader geological area). Also (cautiously) check out the Wikipedia article. From the Sydney Morning Herald:

Lake George around 1980, wet version. A now-rare photo of Lake George with water — quite a substantial amount of it too.

Lake George isn't in official "big sky country", but sometimes it's just there anyway.

Mmm. Brings back some of my favourite memories travelling along the border of the lake towards sunset. Just gorgeous.

Another enduring memory, the pale straw colour of the broad flat grassy plain.

How lovely it is to watch the clouds come and go, and the shadows and light changing across the 'lake bed' and mountains.

Even more livestock on the lake.

Tried to make a Flickr set out of other people's Flickr photos, couldn't work it out. Tried to set up a link for a search for "George" in my Favourites set, but that only works for me and when I'm signed in. Can't just put in the general "Lake George" and Australia search unless you too want to sort through the hundred or so. So I'm trying to set up a type of set (heh) by making an entry here with thumbnails of my selected images, which I can link to. An advantage is that I can include non-Flickr images. It'd be nice to have it as a table with 3 or 4 thumbnails across, but for now I'll just have to go with the standard image uploads that Livejournal has.
