Wilson’s Promontory National Park,Victoria,Australia.Taken while bush walking at Tidal River.Went camping at Wilson’s Prom over Easter break 2012. I have been there many times but this year there were a lot of changes,most of the places are still recovering from the bush fire and floods,lots of hiking trails were closed and the once beautiful beaches were quite badly damaged.
From the net:
The Prom is one of Victoria’s most-loved places.
At the southernmost tip of mainland Australia, it offers spectacular scenery of huge granite mountains, open forest, rainforest, sweeping beaches and coastlines.Great bushwalks extend from under an hour to over three days.
Indigenous Australians occupied the area at least 6,500 years ago based on archaeological records.Extensive sealing took place at Sealer’s Cove during the 19th Century, such that seals are no longer found there.The Prom was used as commando training area during World War II.
As a National Park, Wilsons Promontory is home to a wide range of wildlife species, including kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, emus, a wide range of small marsupials, and numerous species of birds, most prominent among which are the rosellas.

    A wonderful capture. There is a primal quality.

  • Thanks Joseph.It is a very beautiful place and never crowded on the beach even though it is full of campers.There are many beaches there and the National park is enormous.

    Yes, its a wonderful place..like a set out of Jurassic Park. I went on a 4 day walk there about 20 years ago…absolutely fabulous. And this is a great composition, using the light on the trunk and the curve of the path to great advantage.

  • My first time there was also 20yrs ago when I first came to Victoria and I fell in love with the place. Thanks very much for your generous comment. You won’t recognise Tidal river and Sqeaky beach if you go there today,the flood did a lot of damage : (
