Melbourne 365: Day 350

As far as rivers go, the Yarra is quite distinctive, at least as far as the fact that it is almost impossible to see through, and has even been described as running upside down, with the mud on top and the water underneath. So I felt quite pleased, to see that despite this spurious composition, it functions perfectly well insofar as seeing across the river, showing the unique character of the Melbourne skyline, its silhouette like a fingerprint on the horizon from miles away. In fact, we felt the river was so distinctive that it could be described as a Melbourne icon, and is the second in that series.

(Sharon’s interpretation of the Yarra River is on her blog here.)
