Longreach Clarity











I took a bunch of images last weekend, but I think this one goes a long way towards showing the water clarity and just how serene we had it over those 2 days!

    Magnificent clarity Mark. Be hard to see it better than that

    • True North Mark says:

      Indeed Andrew…I don't think I have ever seen it better than that and I have been going there for 37 years!



  2. Hi Mark,

    Fantastic clarity its stunning and I just wish I was there to jump in! A shot to be really happy with. I'm sure you made a typo mate. Surely a man of your age has only been going to Rotto for 17 years. πŸ™‚


  3. that's fantastic Mark. as the previous comments said I want to jump on in right now! if I didn't know from personal experience the water temp at this time of year anyway lol. or is it a bit warmer this year?

    love that foreground tho- and co-operative clouds too!
    just wondering however- is that some wide angle distortion on that boat on the left- or is it about to capsize πŸ˜› haha

    • True North Mark says:

      Indeed it is wide angle distortion Steven…but in a position where it's a little difficult to fix!

    Looking very inviting for a snorkel there mate ! What's the water temp sitting on out there atm ?

    • True North Mark says:

      It's still a little cold at about 21 degrees I reckon but it's ok if you're rough tough and hard to bluff there Tone! πŸ™‚

    Great Shot Mark as everyone else has said you just want to jump in. I had heard that the dredging had effected some of Rotto but it definitely hasn't at longreach.

    The clarity in the water is amazing, as you said it's not that often that you get the water that clear. Looks Ike it would have been a great day for diving.@

  9. Wow, the clarity is pretty impressive. Were you also using a polariser filter?

    • True North Mark says:

      Hey Graham,

      Thank for all the comments mate!

      No I wasn't using a polariser as it was the 17mm tilt shift lense that has a curved lense that makes it impossible to put a filter in front…which I guess makes it all the more special as it was without a polariser eh!

    You capture a richness at Rotto that is sometimes missed on those baking hot days – nicely done.
