Photographing Reflections In Kakadu National Park

A reflection of a large paperbark tree by the water's edge in Kakadu National Park, Australia.

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 several occasions over the years: late December, in the build up to the wet (monsoon); late February, during the wet season; and July, during winter (the dry season in Northern Australia).

Viewing the wetlands at different 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 I 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 and Adobe Photoshop.
