DAWN ENCHANTMENT AT YELLOW WATER

_MAL4802

The Yellow Water billabong. Quiet and serene, it lies on the East Alligator River in the Kakadu National Park in Northern Territory in Australia. In the heat of the day, it feels relatively ordinary. At daybreak it is magical. Watching sunrise, enshrouded in a mist that adds enchantment to the light, and seeing the mist give way to wonder and colour and crocs and snakes and birds and flowers is simply glorious. Together with Uluru at first light, and the rock art, also in Kakadu National Park, it is perhaps the most entrancing of experiences that I felt in Australia.
