Artist's Description

The mouth of the Arthur River in NW Tasmania has a treacherous bar in the path of the Roaring Forties.
The Arthur River itself marks part of the northern boundary of the Tarkine area.
This is what the bar looks like most of the time.
I have been spending time in the area for 30 years or more and yes I do see it completely flat. Probably twice a year even. I am sure it gets flat more often but in all the time I have been there I have only ever seen 1 boat go through the heads.
Conditions can change very quickly and it doesnt take much swell at all to make it very tricky. Not to mention the logs that float ominously around the mouth and change their position on the bar.
The swell is about 4.5 metres on this day.
