– Hidden Waterfalls –

_MG_7868-1
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited in to a property NE of Donnybrook. The owner knowing that the recent rains were transforming the usually trickle of water going over the rocks, to a rush of water.
As this was an impromptu visit, I didn’t have my tripod with me. So this is a handheld shot, took me a few to get the focus and sharpness right, but I am stoked with the result.

Waterfalls within driving distance of the Perth CBD!!
Lesmurdie Falls is currently in full flow. After the recent rain I highly recommend to get there and see this magic waterfall flowing at full force over the escarpment.
I do advise extreme caution though, as the walk down is very hazardous, and with the recent very heavy rains, slip and trip hazards exist everywhere.
Several locations along the walk trail give great viewing of the falls.

– In the Spray –

The falls were pretty much at full force after the latest rains, and I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to get as many different angles as possible. Where my last shot was a bit safe and just a touch up the water fall itself, this shot was a lot further up. I was sliding around trying to get my tripod steady, the spray from the waterfall was a constant hassle as it covered my filters, so every shot was a dry wipe on those.

But persistence payed off and after a solid 20-30min at trying to achieve it, I managed to fire off a few that were spray on the filter free.

 

Staubbach Falls, Switzerland



Staubbach Falls is one of the highest free falling waterfalls in Europe. It’s found above the small mountain village of Lauterbrunnen. Lauterbrunnen is famous for the numerous waterfalls that can been seen freefalling from the high cliffs that surround the village. The area is also a favourite spot for keen BASE jumpers.
