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.
