In January 2011, Queensland was devastated by wide-spread flooding due to the heavy rainfall caused by Tropical Cyclone Tasha and the overflowing of Wivenhoe Dam and connecting rivers. It was a very tragic event that left 200,000 people affected and $2 billion in damages. In my city, Brisbane, it was a very eery few days as the rain stopped but the TV talked about the Brisbane river rising with nothing to do but wait! The sun shone out while the water rose and transformed my city into a surreal, reflecting wonderland – a photographers dream! The morning of the highest peak at 4am, I ventured out with my camera and captured the beauty of the disaster. My heart goes out to all those affected and I hope they have all recovered well.
