“Living in the Mist” (Lamington National Park, Queensland) - This image showcases a beautiful antarctic beech tree encased in forest mist. Lamington National Park is one of the few remaining areas that you can see these incredible trees as the often misty conditions on the ridge line here provide the perfect environment for them.
“Cascades” (Blue Mountains, New South Wales) - Shot in Jamison Creek near Upper Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains. The area received widespread rain for 5 days leading up to this shoot and all the falls were really flowing nicely. The best vantage points always seem to be off the beaten path and of course I had to jump right into the chilly waters here to get this shot!
“Vibrant Forest” (Lamington National Park, South East Queensland) - I have been to Lamington National Park many times however I had never seen the moss on the rocks and logs along the creeks looking so lush and vibrant! The area had received heavy rains over an extended period and during my approx 20 km walking along trails and across creeks during the day, the rain did not stop once! This made shooting conditions difficult having to constantly wipe water droplets from my lense and filters! These conditions actually added to the vibrancy of the rainforest and greatly improved the end result. Not that I was thinking so positively as I trudged back to the trailhead at the end of the day totally soaked through!
“Hopetoun Falls” (Great Ocean Road, Victoria) - Hopetoun Falls are a beautiful (and much photographed!) waterfall in the Otway ranges close to the coastal wonderland that is the Great Ocean Road.
“Weeping Rock” (Blue Mountains, New South Wales) - Weeping rock is a cool cascade along Jameson Creek in the Upper Wentworth Falls area. The falls were really flowing nicely when I visited after a week of rain leading up to it.
“Elegant Elabana” (Lamington National Park, Queensland) - Elabana Falls is by far the most popular falls in Lamington National Park. As well as being accessible on a 7km relatively easy walk from O'Reillys, the falls themselves are spectacular! A bit of rock hoping is required to get the best comps although this can be a bit of hazardous after heavy rains. Well worth it though!
“Russell Falls” (Mt Field National Park, Tasmania) - The magnificent Russell Falls had a relatively low water flow on my visit to the area. Accordingly I decided to get up close to the falls to capture this different perspective. I will be back though to capture these falls with the water pumping!
“Tumbling Waters” (Blue Mountains, New South Wales) - After weeks of rain the water was really flowing over these falls. This is a very popular and easily accessible spot in the Blue Mountains. I climbed all over these falls looking for various compositions and finally settled on this one.
“Mossman Gorge” (Far North Queensland) – Stunning scenery in tropical north Queensland and the perfect place to spend a rainy day! This is however a very popular spot. I arrived quite early in the morning however not long after I had set up, the first busload of tourists wandered into my shot. They did not stay long however as one group left it would immediately be replaced by another. In the end I had to hold a group back for a few minutes whilst I got my shot!
“Toolona Cascade Vertical” (Lamington National Park, Queensland) - The Toolona Creek Circuit in Lamington National Park showcases a superb collection of waterfalls and cascades in a lush rainforest setting. Despite numerous previous visits to the Park, I have only recently discovered these unnamed falls, which are situated just off the main circuit. What a treat!
“Lush Lamington” (South East Queensland) – The return hike to Chalahn Falls is approx 15 kms from O'Reillys guest house and is best seen after heavy rains. After scouting the falls for the best vantage point, I set up my tripod to compose the shot. At this time I realised that I had apparently entered the territory of a cranky Lamington Spiny Crayfish (which is about 12cm in length and vibrant blue in colour). As a show of aggression he backed up against a nearby rock and began waving his claws and hissing at me. Despite this display these crayfish are not dangerous (unless you try to pick one up, in which case you may be given a painful nip) and he was obviously more scared of me than I was of him. He kept up the display the whole time I was there, so I got the shot then left the little fella to reclaim his patch of the rainforest!
“Gondwanaland” (Dandenong Ranges, Victoria) – The combination of elements in this shot create a lush environment from which I half expected a dinosaur to appear through! I overslept this particular morning and when I looked out of the window of our holiday house at about 7:30 am I realised that the whole area was blanketed in a wonderful mist. I quickly jumped in the car and drove to this spot which contained a lovely grove of gum trees combined with these magnificent Tree Ferns. About half an hour later the mist had cleared to a cloudless blue sky day. I was very lucky that I looked out of the window when I did!
