Low Tide – Satellite Island

“It would be vain for me to attempt to describe my feelings when I beheld this lonely harbour lying at the world’s end, separated as it were from the rest of the universe – ‘twas nature, and nature in her wildest mood. At each step we met here the beauties of the nature abandoned to herself, here marks of her decay, trees of an immense height and proportionate diameter, their branchless trunks covered with evergreen foliage, some looking as old as the world”
Bruni D’Entrecasteaux, 1792
