Darwin Sunset, Monday Photo of the Day – Landscape

Darwin is a city of extremes. Beautiful sunsets, strong rich colours in its beaches and foreshores, incredible lightning displays from the summer storms, (I promise myself to visit in the wet season to photograph them)

Jabiru, Friday, Photo of the Day – Birds

A beautiful Jabiru, a black-necked stork, a tall wading bird. Spotted on our Yellow Waters Sunset Wildlife Cruise, Kakadu National Park, NT

Waterfalls and wetlands of Lichfield National Park, Northern Territory

Litchfield National Park, is one of the prettiest National Parks I have witnessed. It features numerous waterfalls which cascade over the sandstone ridge which is Tabletop Range.

Adelaide River Jumping Saltwater Crocodiles

Leaping half their body length straight into the air, to snare their free feast, this prehistoric reptile was giving us an incredible display.

Yellow Waters, Kakadu National Park, NT, wildlife cruise at sunset

We saw numerous salt water crocodiles, some extremely close to our cruise runabout. The bird life was prolific with ducks, egrets, eagles, hawks and the most exciting for me was being up close to the jabiru. The birds and the reptiles seemed to be able to live in harmony, or maybe the large “salties” were not hungry
