Edith Falls

I needed to get my photography fix on the weekend, waterfalls have been on the mind with all the great rainfall we have had lately, however this rain was followed up with some crazy hot days and pretty well dried everything out πŸ˜‰

Anyway, not to be deterred, i punched on and picked some random locations from googlemaps, one of which was Edith Falls at Woodford, I think i must have taken the long route after parking the car, however it was mostly on fire trails which made for a walk which was nice change from collecting spiderwebs on my face πŸ™‚ Edith Falls is pretty small, there was very little water flowing over it, however this kinda worked to my advantage (well thats the story I am sticking to) since I could get up real close without getting my toes wet.

It was fairly late in the afternoon and quite overcast, the falls are buried deep under vegetation with only the trickle of water exposed which means you get this nicely selective light applied to the falls. This shot gives the impression that the area is more spacious then it really is, i was actually crouched under the branch you can see on the right things were pretty tight, however the panorama option just opened the frame up and let the two bigass rocks gently lead you right into the falls.
