Goomburra, Main Range National Park

Early in June I spent a few days camping at the Goomburra section of Main Range National Park in Queensland. It's a popular camping spot for families on weekends and school holidays but mid-week it is often pretty much deserted - as it was when I visited. The main walking track follows the course of Dalrymple Creek from the camp-ground to its upper reaches, passing through tall forest and woodland along the way. After a dry autumn, the creek was flowing less than I'd seen before but at least that made the creek crossings easier, and while the various cascades weren't in full flow, there was still plenty of interest to photograph. Below are a few of my favourites from the trip.

17mm, f11, 10 sec, ISO100

17mm, f11, 15 sec, ISO100 (4 second exposure for the sky)

Other new images

It can be an enlightening experience to go through your old images occasionally, both to assess how your photography has evolved over time and to discover if there are any worthy images that you've overlooked. I spent some time this month doing just that and uncovered these images that haven't seen the light of day before. They were captured over the last few years but, for various reasons, didn't make my initial cut and weren't processed....until now!
