Russell Falls, with its triple-tier cascade, is the most spectacular waterfall in Tasmania.

Unlike many waterfall photos which show ‘silky water’ due to long exposures, this image depicts the falls and cascading water in its natural, unaltered state.

The Falls were first named Browning Falls but were known as the Russell Falls after 1884, by which time they were already a popular tourist attraction.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    Wonderful,superb , this just captured my screen.Now I can ‘feel’ the water I have no idea why people like that silky look /long exposures,just looks weird and artificial to my eyes. Perhaps it’s the fun in photographing differently?

  • Yes, a lot go for the silky look, so I went for the rarer natural look instead! Thanks for the comment Virginia.

    Great shot of a great place Michael. Last time I was there the thick foliage made it very difficult to get a clear shot of the waterfall. If my memory serves me correctly, the falls were more open and visible when I first visited back in the early 1960’s. I suspect that this shot is not a real recent shot but the foliage is all ready closing in.

  • You are correct – it is not a recent shot, but a bit later than the 1960s! Thanks for that Alwyn.
