A new perspective on some waterfalls in the Victorian Alps. The sculpting of the granite over time by water drew my attention so extracted the 70-200mm out of the bag and came up with this abstract of the colour and form of the rockface, which is sometimes devoid of water during really dry times.
Beautiful rainforest reflections of a plunge pool below Emma Gorge. The magic contrast between the deep orange cliff and the deep greens of the foliage, not to mention the colour of the water…..and the reflection of the forementioned make for a scene of peace and tranquility.
My take on Emma Gorge, another must see off the Gibb River Road.
A change up from the boabs and ranges, the El Questro gorge is an adventure to get to, similar to some of the Karigini locations. Bit of wading, followed by rock climbing and boulder hopping…….and snake dodging, but at the end this scene awaits. The water colour is fair dinkum.
Been thinking about returning to one of my little spots out the back of Marysville for some time but unsure of what I would find after the most devastating fires in history only 2 years ago. The drive up there wasn’t looking good, probably 90% of the gums are not coming back, they are now the ghosts of forest past and a reminder of the power of nature and the respect that it deserves. The beech trees have also been hit hard but there is new growth, acacias and tree ferns but might be 40-50 years before the forest looks as feels as it was. Arriving at my little spot I found that even the wettest place in the forest had been hit by the fire but found it quite ironic that in the same month as two years ago the water in the river is pumping, higher than winter even. One of the bridges sustained damage a few weeks ago, from flooding, not fire. I guess that everything will find balance once again.
