The day the Earth stood still

What happened here you might ask. Short story, dusk was a remarkable pleasure, peaceful and scenic...typical for winter. Not a cloud in the sky and it wasn't even as cold as forecast. I had to negotiate some very slippery muddy surfaces and rocks to get here....I have been waiting for this day for sooo long. The tide was perfect and the water was like a mirror. But as soon as the sun was up it was game over. Got back home and lost myself doing some digital art before breakfast.

Obviously the stars, birds and the moon are fake!

You might like it or not....either way, I have just added the original below.

I haven't really done an obvious DA (Digital Art) before....feel free to comment on either

Mangroves are trees and shrubs that grow in saline coastal habitats in the tropics and subtropics. The saline conditions tolerated by various species range from brackish water, through pure seawater to water of over twice the salinity of ocean seawater, where the salt has become concentrated by evaporation.

 

There are many species of trees and shrubs adapted to saline conditions. Not all are closely related, and the term 'mangrove' may be used for all of them, or more narrowly only for the mangrove family of plants, the Rhizophoraceae, or even more specifically just for mangrove trees of the genus Rhizophora.

 

More than fifty species of Rhizophoraceae grow in Australasia, with particularly high biodiversity on the island of New Guinea and northern Australia.

 

Australia has approximately 11,500 km2 of mangroves primarily on the northern and eastern coasts of the continent, with occurrences as far south as Millers Landing in Wilsons Promontory, Victoria and Barker Inlet in Adelaide, South Australia.
