I took this shot in August at sunrise, just a few minutes before stepping on board a cruise on Yellow Water Billabong in the Kakadu National Park. I knew I would see many animal species during the cruise and I was also aware that there were plenty of crocodiles in the water… however, at this moment, I was only contemplating the calm of the misty scene. I really wanted to capture the contrast between the landscape and the wildlife that was about to wake up soon! The colours were spectacular and I loved the perfect reflection.”
