Second of 5 waterfalls at Somersby Falls in Brisbane Waters National Park on the Central Coast of NSW in Australia.
Recent rains have enlarged this usually tame waterfall and dirtied it up a bit.

    What a ripper of a shot John, I gotta get over there some day :) Came out a winner mate, very well done :)

  • Hi Shannon, thanks so much, I deeply appreciate your comments. This is a great spot only an hour north of Sydney with quite a few nice falls nearby. Well worth a visit. All the best.

    I was wondering what she looked like at the moment (was going to try and get up there this weekend)… This is a fantastic image John…

  • Hi Sharon, this shot was taken on 2/6/11, after the 1st lot of heavy rain. I was there again on Monday but couldn’t get near this spot. Going again tomorrow for a look see, I reckon it’ll be well worth a visit on the weekend. Iv’e got work on the weekend so I make the most of the week days. Many thanks Sharon & thanks for the fav. Kind regards.
