In the Rainforest by Michael John

A floor of ferns, a dark cave, moss covered rocks, a small waterfall and pool. These are the signs of an Australian rainforest.

The rainforest trees here include the Southern Sassafras and the Black Olive Berry, both relics from the age of Gondwana.

This image was captured near the Leura Cascades.

Leura, Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, Australia. This is a listed World Heritage area.

Canon G12.

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.
