So finally it was Easter and I made time to pick up my camera and go to a new location. I headed up to Wallaman Falls which is the highest, permanent, single-drop waterfall in Australia. It is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. I had hoped to take the trail to the base of the falls, but it has not yet reopened after Cyclone Yasi caused major damage to the area over 12 months ago. Indeed the damage from the cyclone is still apparent in the vegetation all through this area. I arrived on dark so took a few night shots of the falls and surrounds, though being close to full moon the stars were somewhat washed out. Camped overnight and took some more images at sunrise.
This is a somewhat surreal take on the falls using an exposure over a minute to capture the rising mist and the sweep of the morning cloud.
