Hidden Sanctum by Sam Sneddon

Currently unavailable for purchase

Not really knowing what to expect, I bought a topographical map of the Great Otway Ranges and surrounding area in search of waterfalls. Little did I know but this region has nearly 200 waterfalls (most of them too hard to get to). I selected a half a dozen and spent the day hiking through forest to different places (my legs were killing at the end of the day). This water fall, Lower Kalimna Falls were close to my favourite because they fall over a rock shelf that is high enough to stand under.

Passionate photographer who loves to shoot seascapes and discover unknown and unseen treasures along Victoria’s coastline. Innovate not Imitate is the philosophy I try to shoot by. Panoramic photography is my forte, but sometimes I have to force myself in to shooting other formats to best compliment the scene.

    Brilliant Sam. All of my waterfall shots are from the Otways taken on our recent trip to Vic. I discounted the upper/lower Kalimna falls because the return journey from the car was 8 km’s!!!!
    Now you make me wish I had not been so lazy. Oh but my legs were knackered after visiting 7 waterfalls in 2 days!!
    This pic of yours is composed fantastically and you have treated it like a pro. Well done.
