Opening the Mallacoota Lake Mouth 22 July 2020

Art, East Gippsland


Captured on 22nd July 2020, this panoramic image offers a breathtaking aerial view of the Mallacoota landscape, dominated by the profound interplay between the lake and the sea. The lake, having receded by over half a meter, unleashes a powerful current of tannin-stained rainwater, flowing determinedly towards the vast expanse of the sea. This rush of water can be traced from the lake, channeling through the newly opened mouth situated on the right.

The impact of the tannin is unmissable. To the right of the mouth, the ocean takes on a distinct brown hue, bearing testimony to nature's organic painting as the tannin-rich water melds with the saltwater. This contrasts sharply with the left (south) side, where the ocean radiates an emerald green, untouched and pristine, seemingly resisting the incoming flow.

Beyond the immediate coastline, the hinterland unveils a patchwork of greenery and terrain, adding depth and context to the coastal drama. The dynamic movement of water, both from the lake and the rhythmic waves of the sea, creates a myriad of textures, from the frothy white waves to the glassy stillness of certain lake parts.

This image is not just a snapshot of a moment in time but also a vivid portrayal of nature's continuous ebb and flow, its resilience, and its ever-changing beauty.
