Images of a Big Island

Cedar Ck. Cascade. (Edited Version)

G’day Gang,
This image is of a spot just above Cedar Ck. Falls here on the Whitsunday mainland. About 10 ft behind me is a 15m drop. For most of the summer this little spot has been a raging torrent due to a very active wet season and it was only the other day I could finally get into here.
Looking around and seeing where the water level was in full flood, it would have been pretty awesome to see, but you would need a helicopter to access it.

If it doesn’t rain again in the next couple of weeks this will probably dry up, so this is about the optimum waterflow for photography purposes.
Hope everybody has a safe and happy Easter!
(After a suggestion by Tony Middleton, a cropped version of the image has been inserted)

    Spot on Tim – this is about as good as this spot gets. The cascade abnd immediate rocks look great. If anything perhaps a slight crop of the image could improve it, maybe a chunky pano taking off some of the bottom and a smidge off the top.

    • cheers Tony, maybe a 16:9 crop would do the trick!

    Great idea mate, or I find sometimes a 5:2 can work.
