Artist's Description

Rainbow Falls is in the Otways near Cape Otway Lighthouse on the shipwreck coast. If you visit Rainbow Falls expecting to see an impressive plume of water arcing over into a classic drop you will be disappointed, the falls are basically a wide curtain of dripping water dependant on good recent rains to form well. That said the falls are so startlingly unique that they are truly worth visiting. For a start they are the only falls in the Otway’s to plunge directly onto a seaside rock platform and yes in the late afternoon sun a rainbow does form within its watery shroud. Oddly there is no creek or river above it as it is simply the outflow of an extensive lime rich aquifer forming what to all intense purposes looks like a giant outdoor cave complete with stalactites and flowing limestone with parts of it covered in verdant moss. The base of the falls are also unique forming what at first glance looks to be an environmental disaster involving a shipwreck and a cargo of cement. Fortunately the formations complete with pebble inclusions are entirely natural and serve to add to the unique character of this place. The object in the forground is a washed up cray trap I found nearby and placed in the foreground to add some interest (heavy bugger). As you can see the sky that afternoon was absolutely sensational.
