Early summer in South Eastern Australia brought soaring temperatures and devastating bush-fires. Welcome rain arrived in Mid January to some parts of our state, especially in the West and coastal areas, and then we had more rain through to the end of last week. The Otway ranges are special, and with the summer rains it is a magical time to visit, with cool days and misty nights. Many sections of this large National Park are awesome and some places have not seen bush-fires for over one thousand years!! We had over a week here and I re-visited some of my favourite spots and discovered some new ones. I have posted here a few of the images that I shot, so please enjoy.
