Overnight at Fig Tree Point

High and Wide: Fig Tree Point &emdash; Sunset Glow at Fig Tree Point

It’s late January in South-East Queensland and summer is really starting to kick into gear. What better time to go for a walk in the hot, steamy wetlands of the Cooloola Recreation Area…. Right?!

With our time left in Queensland very quickly ticking away (we are moving to Tasmania in March), Maree and I have been forced to stop being picky about the weather in order to give ourselves the best chance of finishing off our tick-list of local adventures before we go. So with this mantra in mind, and despite the poor forecast of hot and stormy weather, we hit the road as soon as work finished for the week and headed North. Continue reading

Photo of the Week – Meeting of the Waters

This weeks shot was taken on the same weekend as the previous one up at Springbrook. Maree and I completed the Warrie Circuit which had been on our list since doing the Twin Falls Circuit last year.

The waterfalls were stunning. With the large amount of rain that came through the day before they were all pumping.

This shot is of Meeting of the Waters. A good lunch spot on the circuit and the point where all the water from upstream in the gorge funnels through. The photo is a three shot panorama taken from a rock perched in the middle of the flow. My goal was to capture the power of the water coming through this small gap.
