A Pest Called Nathan
It’s the day after Cape York’s hand-me-down Tropical Cyclone Nathan swept passed Nhulunbuy in Arnhem Land. His wake has left trees down, boats stranded on the causeway, damaged power lines and some flooding.
We are the lucky ones, with only a tree down that managed to miss the cars, the boat and the house as well as saving us the job of chopping it down ourselves which was on the cards!
Whilst I admit that photographically speaking I do get a bit excited at any kind of inclement weather, my thoughts are with the homelands and communities copping the brunt of this brute so soon after Tropical Cyclone Lam and while they are still in recovery mode.
ALPA RJCP are doing a terrific job assisting the recovery efforts post Cyclone Lam as well as keeping people updated with the warnings for Tropical Cyclone Nathan, who will no doubt set the recovery effort back.
If you would like to assist the communities worst affected by this year’s cyclone season ALPA are running a fundraising campaign that you can contribute to here.
Here are a few of my images from the eve of TC Nathan and the day after. I hope you enjoy and if you do please share with your friends and family!
