In the Mist Forest at the top of Mount Gower, Lord Howe Island, Australia.
The Mist Forest is a special place with unique plant species including the ‘Little Palm’ tree which is only found here. It is most often mist shrouded and has a beautiful look, only accessible with a guide who is careful to preserve this beautiful place and educate those hardy enough to make the climb to it. It is not an easy climb and this helps keep the environment well protected. The local inhabitants of the island are wonderful people who truly live in the Garden of Eden and guard it well.
Canon 5D MkIII, Canon 16-35 F2.8L lens, and a very sore body from the hard work of the climb!!!
