Minnamurra .. sunlight & shade by 

On a sunny day in the Minnamurra Rainforest, the sunshine created dark shadows on the edge of the cliff but at the same time gave the falling water a special glow.

I set the composition to avoid more of the heavy shadows.

This is Minnamurra Falls in the Budderoo National Park in the Illawarra region of Australia.

Canon 400D, ISO100, F29, Exposure 0.3 seconds, RAW Mode, Flash setting.

Minnamurra Falls on a cloudier day

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
