This great waterfall is on the Box Forest Circuit at Lamington National Park, Queensland, Australia.

Original title .. Photographer strips for a photo .. Elabana Falls
It was just the shoes & socks that I stripped off, though I was shooting in RAW !!
Seeing as I couldn’t get a good frontal view of the top section of the falls from down below without climbing onto a delicately balanced log, I decided to climb over the rocks & wade into the middle of the falls.
It was fairly shallow but the rocks were a little slippery & after a short time the water felt pretty cold (even though it was warm).
I got a few quick photos & later on wondered about a better composition.
The half dozen people who were there at the beginning moved along, so there was noone to pick up the pieces if I fell.
