Kakadu clouds

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 11 July 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I am on a tour boat gliding along the Yellow Water wetlands in Kakadu National Park. A most tranquil place with water lilies spread all along the shore.

On this stretch of water, we saw few signs of crocodiles. You never know if it is just a 'logodile' - floating log.

However, it was around the next bend that we spotted the big croc - keeping a discreet eye on passing boats.

'logodile' is a wonderful term. We always say we saw and "elkrock or a deerlog" when we are out looking for wildlife and think we spotted something, but it turns out to be rocks or logs.

Beautiful capture of this landscape! Tranquil indeed until the croc rises out with its snapping jaws!! I love how the reflection off the water makes the sky look even bluer!
