    Those old rocks look like they’ve seen an age or two!

  • Yes Mel and think they’ve seen a summer or two

    Wonderfully captured the wild streaming water David. You can clearly see how these rock formations disintegrate over years.

  • Thanks so much John, I so love the wild places like this and especially love comparing them to the old images that are so readily available through the Picture Australia website, Thanks again!!

  • Hey thanks John, I hope to capture it later this year from a lower angle on a foggy/misty day perhaps, but I’ll wait to the water level drops a bit, Lol
