The tidal Johnstone River was flowing fast and high, thanks to a 350+mm rainfall delivered in the catchment area over a few days from ex-Cyclone Oswald. The banks had actually flooded earlier in the day but, as seen here, a low tide was in effect.
Taken early evening January 23, 2013, Innisfail, QLD, AU.

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”
