‘Tree of life’: aerial photographs reveal arboreal patterns at Lake Cakora on NSW mid-north coast | Australia information


Newbie photographer Derry Moroney lives on the mid-corth coast of New South Wales locally of Brooms Head. For the previous three years he has been photographing landscapes, animals and bugs. ‘With our pristine seashores and Yuraygir nationwide park on my doorstep, I actually didn’t need to journey very far,’ he says.

In July 2020 Moroney adopted the water upstream from the estuary at Brooms Head and came upon to Lake Cakora. Utilizing his drone he captured gorgeous photos of arboreal-like drainage channels in Lake Cakora. ‘The tea bushes alongside the banks color the water working off into the lake after an enormous storm,’ he says, describing the patterns as ‘like a tree of life’.
