Irrigation in the Peel River Valley at Dungowan

Irrigation in the Peel River Valley at Dungowan

We had another very enjoyable weekend at our cousin’s hay farm at Dungowan. Being late autumn, the farmers only have 1 more chance to cut their hay before it stops growing over winter. The paddock in this photo has just been planted with a new lot of lucern. It is being watered to try to give it a head start. It won’t be cut till next spring.
This animated photo is a series of 18 photos that I took with a hand held camera as the irrigation was turned on. The real thing looked a lot better than this because it was a very long pipe and the water pressure varied until it got to full pressure. I still think it looks rather interesting though, so here it is.
