time for reflections
This is the view as you stand in front of the altar of St Mary’s by the Sea in Port Douglas, far north Queensland. What you may look out upon depends on the time of day, the season or local weather . A crocodile may emerge onto the mangrove mud by the mangroves, visibility may be zero if a cyclone is raging or the sky and air could be turning fiery red in the last throes of a tropical sunset.
The weather was not great for photography.These images were captured on a late November afternoon . A metre and a half of rain had fallen in the previous three days and the air was thick with steaming humidity. No crocodiles were lurking but then there are few signs to indicate they may be out in the water.
