I arrived at Archer Point only to get no further as the mud was too deep for my sedan. I had to be satisfied with where I was and this is that place. The beach at Archer Point is beautiful. It is shallow at low tide and the mangroves sit majestically in the sand as if they know they represent the true beauty of the place.

It was a short stay as the rain reappeared and it was so heavy that a hasty retreat back along the unpaved road was in order before the creeks swelled and stranded me there. I managed to back track, get through the rising water just in time and take myself to The Lion’s Den for Lunch. But that’s another story and another photograph!

Canon 5D MkIII, Canon 16-35 F2.8L Lens. A blend of three images.

Taken at Archer Point, near Cooktown, Far North Queensland, Australia.

The older I get the more I love to take pictures. I should have done this all my life!

I love to see your pictures. Your talent inspires me!
