Yet another trip to Fogg Dam

Its been many months since I last made the journey down the Arnhem Highway to Fogg Dam.
View of Fogg Dam
I drove there after lunch today and although I was suprised by the lack of water
considering the recent storms we have had in Darwin, the afternoon had its other suprises.
As I stopped my car for the first time I saw a crocodile of about a metre and half size drop off the dam wall into the water.
It was just to the left of this tree where the crocodile slipped into the water.
The hair was standing up on my neck as I gingerly walked around!!

As I drove out an hour later I was even more surprised to see a rather large buffalo!!

I chatted to a couple of other photographers before I drove home being chased by a storm which was very heavy with rain.

My "newish" car however performed well on the run.
