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.

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!

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.
