A few weeks ago the western half of Victoria got it’s biggest dump of rain in seven years and I was fortunate enough to be in the area waterfall hunting. I found this drop by accident (it’s not on any maps I know of) while looking for another waterfall and for want of a better name I’ve called it Granite Falls (it’s on Granite Creek). It’s about 3km across farm land from the nearest road and it was a big buzz to stumble across such a significant set of waterfalls. This was just the top drop of a huge set of cascades which after all the rain was absolutely pumping.

Australia’s rugged landscape is an important part of my life and over many years I have explored some of the more remote parts of it on foot, ski, kayak and rope. I usually travel alone so I can take my time capturing the essence of these places without distraction. Life slows down and after a while I feel like I begin to merge with the land, nature takes me into her confidence and changes me. I hope you enjoy the fruit of these excursions.

    Pumping it is! Nicely taken Travis and I think the name is fitting.

    G’day Travis
    the rain had long stopped when you came across these “Granite Falls” as to the colour in the water, It’s a great feeling when you stumble across a great photo, cheers Rod.

  • Hi Rod, It was a funny day, two minutes before I took this shot it was pelting down hail and all. In two days i visited 10 drops and it was raining practically not stop, this smidgen of blue being a rare exception. Still waterfalls were goin off. Thanks mate.
