Little Aire Falls. by Bette Devine

In the Great Otway National Park,Victoria,Australia. The rain did not once cease on the walk into the falls, during the shooting, or on the way back. I found that Parks Victoria had provided a steel mesh floored lookout ,which made proper use of a tripod impossible. I had to lean it against the railing ,extract my camera from my pack under my rain poncho, change the lens (silly me) – all the time trying desperately to shield the camera from the rain with an umbrella. Now I keep three pieces of strong cardboard in my camera pack and they have been very useful, since I have found that bridges and lookouts damaged by the fires have all been replaced with steel mesh.
Pentax K7 DSLR.

Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    Have to agree Bette, those stupid floors, like the ones at Triplet Falls are a pain with a tripod.

    Getting away from that, you have captured the falls beautifully.

  • I didn’t reply promptly! Sorry John, and thanks for your comment.

    Very nice and it makes me feel a little cooler as it is 42 degrees right here as I write a bit to warm for me, so I would just love to be near those falls, thank you…….Ron

  • In S.A.? It’s pretty hot here (Melbourne) too, but not as hot as 42! I was pretty cool the day I photographed the falls because it did not stop raining! Thanks,Ron.
