Mount Tamborine South East Queensland

A Selection of Images from a few days spent in and around the Mount Tamborine area in South East Queensland. A beautiful spot with numerous National Parks, that have the last remnants of Rainforest the once covered much of this Mountain top. Cedar Creek runs through many of the Parks and it rained quite heavily during our visit.

Leeches were our constant companions during our hikes through the various parks. Although a few of the days were quite wet with low hanging cloud it only amplified the wonderful conditions that exist in these wonderful rain-forests. The creeks were not running at their full capacity so it was quite easy to cross over them and set up the camera to include the tumbling water as it cascaded over the rocks. Although Queensland Light is certainly not my favourite by any stretch of the imagination, here within the rain-forest itself, especially in the gloom it was just lovely.

King Island Workshop September 2010

Wild Weather from the South West, squalls and surging Oceans all added to the drama of the three day workshop. As usual our host Ian Johnson proved amazing and effortlessly drove the Okka 4WD to all the destinations for some amazing wild weather photography. Wonderful gourmet food and succulent King Island steaks on the Barbie greeted us when we all returned from yet another fantastic shoot. All participants shot many excellent images and learnt so much from this workshop. The wilder the weather the better the photography! Our nocturnal shoot of the little penguins coming home to roost just topped the weekend  off.
