Giant Fig

Strangler Fig

It is always a humbling experience taking a trek in one of Australia’s rainforests knowing that the beauty surrounding you is many many years old. I tend to find it hard to capture the beauty before me in just a collection of  photographs but still I try if only for a visual record for myself.

This shot was taken along the well worn track to Elabana Falls in the Lamington NP. I found the trees here amzingly beautiful, especially seeing as though I come from Canberra and these opportunties are few and far between. I am always amazed at the root systems that these things must have as a lot of them, like the one in the background, are leaning at some wicked angles.

I’m off to Sydney in a few hours so will hopefully have some photos to post next week sometime. I am interested to see what I come back with as there has been quite a few shots from there on other people’s blogs lately which I am sure will have influenced my ideas. Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Hey Chloe, I’m glad you found me and thanks for your comment. I have had my D90 for about 12 months now after owning a D70 for a while. Its a cool camera that takes a while to learn but you can get some amazing results from it.
