Storm clouds at high tide by Keiran Lusk


Available to buy on…

Captured today. My first visit to Nudgee Beach (on Moreton Bay, Brisbane) and my first attempt at HDR photography.

As I explored the mangroves in my best pair of thongs (and armed with the aeroguard), a passing walker jokingly inquired whether I had spotted the crocodile yet. I joined in the joke and told him that I was waiting patiently for the ‘croc’ to appear.

Upon returning to my car in the dark, I was more than slightly bemused to hear on the radio that a fisherman had apparently sighted (and video taped) a crocodile at Nudgee Beach just today. Now that would have made for an interesting photographic mission this afternoon!

    Love the story Keiran, and glad you didn’t get ambushed by the croc! Beautiful image – and nice effect with the HDR- not overdone thankfully.

  • Hehe, thanks Enivea! I am glad too (about the croc not ambushing me). Still learning about this ‘HDR’ thing, but I think I will continue to use it in a subtle manner. Cheers :-)

    WOW Keiran i’m glad Mr Crocodile didn’t take a Snap (Giggggggggggllee) at you matey - love your work as always TC Heather !!!

  • Ha, thanks Heather! Thankfully the only snapping that took place that arvo was with my camera. I can’t imagine having to wrestle with a croc (and protect my camera gear) in a Brisbane waterway, but stranger things have happened before!
