This aerial image was one of many of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area, originally taken in colour for National Geographic. Only from the air can the richness of the area be fully appreciated, as the 600 acre farms stretch outward from the Murrumbidgee River to the horizon. Contour lines for equal water spread over the area weave through the paddocks and the lime yellow patches of the rice field stand out.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
