I have photographed this ephemeral swamp regularly in the last decade. It used to be a cleared paddock, used for grazing cattle, but is now a bluegum plantation. The location is Homerton in Western Victoria.

I was interested to see whether the reeds and rushes would regenerate after the stock were removed. We have had several wet years after the decade-long drought and there appears to have been quite a bit of regrowth. And it's interesting to see that the eucalypt has recuperated as well.

I think it is wonderful your dedication to photograph the same area over a period of years. 2014 looks so serene with its quiet pond restored by enough rain. It will be a heaven for all sorts of insects, birds, mammals and naturally aquatic plus moisture loving plants.
