More of an interest upload this one. A year and a half ago I did a sunrise shoot with Tony Middleton here at Pyramid Rock on Phillip Island and he pointed out this waterfall. At the time it was totally dry so I just added it to my list to visit in spring after good rains. With limited time to shoot I tend to prioritise locations so have put this one off for drops closer to home and where I can usually shoot a few in one trip.

Things finally came together on the weekend however. On Saturday I delivered a huge order of my new Prom book to Wilsons Promontory and on the way home shot five waterfalls in Mt Worth State Forest before coming here. There was a big dump Saturday night so all the drops were in fine fettle. To see this one going so well was a particular thrill after waiting so long to shoot it. It is easily seen from the Pyramid Rock walking track but for some reason has never made it onto any maps. Really nice drop though. Slipped on my ass twice getting down the steep muddy track to the beach though (last time I was here Tone scaled death defying cliffs in his thongs… respect ya crazy bugger, lol).

I think I took better shots of this drop with it being the center of attention, however I liked how the big pano with Pyramid Rock in it gave it a better sense of context.

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.

    Great pano Trav, glad to see your patience with these oft dry spots paying off! :)

  • I’ve been doing this waterfall thing for five years all of which have been drought years. This spring is a dream come true with all the rain about seeing all these creeks that haven’t flowed in years, ta.

    Well done Trav and one out of the box for sure.

  • Thanks Don, two of your favourite things in one hey… Finally visited Wilhelmina Falls again today, they were so pumping, first time I visited they were totally dry so good to see them in such fine form and with the wildflowers out.

    I will put them on my list have you seen Tonys post you must have a look as some Scumbags have stolen his gear and photos..

  • Yerr I read that, will give him a call when I get the chance. What disgusts me the most is the stealing of his hard drives. 750gig ones are only like $70 bucks new so second hand they’re hardly worth a cracker, where as the info on it is worth a fortune. Such a pointlessly low act, really upsetting, Tone is such a great guy too, assholes.

    You making lists now ahaha
