This was Somersby Falls like I had never seen it before. The June storm from 2007 which caused havoc and mayhem across the Hunter and Central Coast dumped unbelievable amounts of water. This image of Somersby falls was taken about 40 minutes after sunrise on the Saturday Morning so it will be among the first images to catch this scene of the falls raging after the storm. The noise of the falls was almost deafening and the spray had me damp before I got to the base of the falls. The water was up and over my shoes while taking this image. It is presented now as I thought that I had lost this image along with many others after a harddrive failure.
Image taken with a Nikon D70 and the 18-70mm lens. The apeture was full open at f3.5 to get a fast exposure time to freeze the water action.
