Unveiling Nature's Power: The Majestic Opening of Mallacoota's Mouth
Witness the Marvel of Nature at Work
On the brisk morning of July 21, 2020, nature unveiled one of its grandest spectacles in Mallacoota – the opening of its mighty mouth. The sky was adorned with a tapestry of clouds, parting occasionally to reveal hints of blue sky. On the eastern horizon, a distant rainstorm danced with the sea, adding an extra touch of drama to the scene. It was a day of awe and wonder, a day to capture the sheer power and beauty of nature.
The lakes were blocked off in a storm many months ago, causing water levels to surge a couple of meters above mean sea level (with a tide variation of 1.2 to 1.5 meters). The situation became critical, and the town began to face the threat of flooding. It was during these tense moments that a trench was dug, a lifeline for Mallacoota.
For two days, the water flowed through this newly carved passage, relieving the town from the impending deluge. You can catch a glimpse of these intense moments in the following two posts with the hashtag #lovemallacoota.
My drone, unfortunately, was away for repairs during these initial developments and arrived later in the day. Nonetheless, it allowed me to document the mesmerising evolution of the mouth's opening as nature orchestrated its own masterpiece.
This video has captivated the hearts of over 1.2 million viewers, and it's no surprise why. It's a reminder that in the grand scheme of things, we are mere spectators to nature's breathtaking performances.
And the show is far from over. I will return to document the evolving opening, so you can witness nature's masterpiece as it continues to unfold.
