A top the rock pools at Mothar Mountain just outside of Gympie, Australia, I struck it lucky with the sunlight hitting the water just right and creating this wonderful river of gold. From the carpark at Mothar Rock Pools, we had to hike a ways up the river to get to this spot, even having to walk through the water at one point.
Shot with Nikon D90, Sigma 10-20mm lens, textures added.

    Tracie, this is beautiful and so calming and peaceful. I just want to sit on one of those rocks and take in the serenity. :)

  • It was actually a very hot day, so sitting and soaking the feet was definitely an option :)

    Wow that yellow just jumps off the image, what a wonderful sight and capture. Must of made you smile when you came across this beautiful area.

  • I had heard of this spot before, but this was the first time I had been there. I would really love to go back one day. I am sure there is much there to explore.
