Wattamolla Waterfall by Michael Matthews

The popular Wattamolla in the Royal National Park is pretty busy in summer, but even in winter it has plenty of admirers.

This tiny waterfall creates a great effect as it falls into the deep pool below.
Despite the strong breeze, I managed to get this shot without too much movement in the framing vegetation. The closer shots had lots of blurry vegetation.

Photographed with a Canon 400D at Wattamolla in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney, Australia.

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.
