Working with the theme of the Big Wet, when rain finally comes to Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre in South Australia, suddenly all is revealed: the colours of previously suspended layered geological and aquatic matter seemingly dead, then dance together.

The aerial view enables us to see the richness and shifting subtlety of this ancient land in all its drama, and Kati Thanda is a phenomenon of endless interest to me.
