Just when winter temperatures drop the farthest, the sun shines its brightest and snow floats across open space like liquid light.
But the current cold snap, like many before it, was preceded by a squall. The geese settled on the marsh to wait out the wind.
When the storm was over there were lines on the surface of the marsh …
… and lines on the shore.
With the air temperature hovering around –20°C, waterfowl sought the warmth of liquid water …
though liquidity was fickle.
In Port Darlington harbour the flow of water and ice became a stream of steam and light.
