My new article, Rocks of Gibraltar, appears in the April-May issue of Great Walks magazine. The article is about hiking in Gibraltar Range National Park in New South Wales and includes photos from a number of trips I’ve made there over the last couple of years. I hope to get back there this winter to chase some more shots of this awesome wilderness area. You can read the article here.
New photos this month
Earlier this month I spent a rainy morning up at Lake Baroon near Maleny. It's a picturesque spot now that the water level in the lake is high - water lilies are flourishing and other vegetation around the shores is green and lush. The rain started bucketing down just as I arrived before dawn, and for a while I thought I wouldn't even be getting out of the car. Sunrise came and went with very little noticeable change in the sky - just dark and gloomy. Eventually the rain let up and I managed to get a few shots near the dam wall, and some more at the top of the lake. While the anticipated colours of sunrise didn't happen, the heavy clouds and wet vegetation made for some quite nice atmospheric photos - four of the better ones are displayed below, and my favourite shot with wet lily pads in the foreground is in the Latest Images gallery.
Another rainy morning, this time at Donnybrook on the shores of Pumicestone Passage. There aren't too many spots here where it's easy to get to the foreshore - mangroves and mud make the going difficult. These photos were alll taken from a small area near the boat ramp. There's another shot in the Latest Images gallery.
And finally, a few shots of Bribie Island bridge.
