Ross Creek at King Tide

During my visit to Yeppoon situated in Queensland, Australia, an event known as King Tide was occurring. King Tide is a term which originated in Australia to describe an especially high tide, and occurs a couple of times a year. This particular one was rumoured to be an extra high tide and warnings were put out that flooding  could be expected in some areas. However these tides fell short of the five metre height, but were still spectacular.

On this occasion I visited Ross Creek to record the King Tide. Normally I would have gone either much earlier, or later, to get the better light. If I had have gone then I would have missed the tide. These images were taken between 10am and 10.30am when the tide was almost at its height.
