    On monday we caught up with my cousins and we made a picnic lunch and headed off on a lazy drive up to Queen Mary Falls. On the way we had to get through some fairly deep water from the floods but we made it. I took my GF1 and 20mm. All photos were taken Raw and put through my Aperture Preset.

    We arrived at the park site and had our lunch.

    We went for a bit of a walk

    Saw a few creatures that brought concern to a certain cousin (she's a girl)

    Off the track I went chasing after the Lizard and when i came back saw the awesome light.

    Then out of the blue the track came to a lookout and here was the water fall. After the floods we've been having it looked quite spectacular falling 40 meters (130ft). I couldn't get it all in with the 20mm lens so I stitched it. First go at stitching.

    We fooled around a bit. Here's yours truly.

    Further on to another lookout. I decided when I get rich I'm gonna buy a house here.

    Checking out what house would be good

    At the the end of the day I dressed up my D90 so he didn't feel left out.

    That's one fantastic waterfall, well worth the trek and done justice by your photographs.

    Icon, I'm so glad you posted these here along with your travelogue! I saw them on Flickr and immediately fell in love with your new home site.:2thumbs: Wonderful shot of the waterfall and that rainbow!

    You and your family clearly had a great day out - and away from the terrible floods. Good for you and thank you!

    Thanks for the comments.:thumbup:



    I saw you added that photo as one of your favourites! Thanks
    I'm a bit lazy (haven't had time really) and I've never actually put a desription on any of my Flickr photos. I'm guessing with a description they might be more interesting.
