Pic of the Week_Reflections_Kakadu

Kakadu is a very special place. It is a wild and beautiful environment in the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory. This image was made under late afternoon light on the Yellow Waters Cruise within the Kakadu National Park. Magpie geese, sea eagles and crocodiles thrive in this environment. But the boat on which you cruise provides protection and excellent opportunities for viewing and photographing flora and fauna alike.

I’ve been fortunate to have undertaken the cruise on two occasions: late December, in the build up to the wet (monsoon) and July, during winter (the dry season in Northern Australia). Viewing the wetlands at opposite times of year was a great education and allowed me to produce a diverse range of images. I look forward to my next visit and recommend Yellow Waters; in particular the sunrise and sunset cruise, to all keen photographers. Maybe I’II see you there.

Image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2.0 and Adobe Photoshop CS4.
