Macquarie Pass National Park is around 100km south of Sydney. Although itís only a relatively small reserve at 1064 hectares, there are several forest trails through the park that take you to several cascades and waterfalls. Its one of my favourite places and this small stream near Rainbow Falls is one of the places I often stop for break.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

What a divine place to rest at, Chris! I envy you.
Splendid shot with a wonderful DOV.

Hi Chris,
An excellent landscape scene. Very lush vegetation. The many shades of green here are very beautiful. Exposure is very good. Nice detail in this superb composition. Not what you normally think of when you thinkf of Australia.

Hi Chris,
Very beautiful landscape capture,
excellent composition with good depth,
nice and cool colours,
Thanks for sharing!

Lovely spot for a break. I really like the composition. The green apprears to me to be a little too intense and unnatural. There is too much blue in it. IMHO : ) Whenever my waterfalls look blue like yours I know I should have used a warming filter or adjusted in PP. I played a little with your photo and will post it if you want. Can't do any more today. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Chris,
Running late, have to go..
But well deserved :-) Keep em' coming!

Nice shot! Beautiful image, the bright colours are fantastic, great photo, excellent work!
and many thanks for sharing!
I like so much!
The composition gear up for a very fine result.

Hi Chris,
Looks like a magical mystical place! Very nice and an excellent job capturing the essence of this neat location!

Great capture of a very nice place Chris. The colours are very good as well as the light. This must be the perfect place to refill ones mind after a stressing day.

Very nice landscape. Beautiful green colors. Well composed. I like the place a lot.

It is curious. NZ and Galicia are so similar and different at the same time...
Very nice lights details and composition. Lovely green tones.
I liked to see this one. Regards, Felipe.

love the DOF, and the POV. Colours are glorious! Makes me want to just stop and rest. What a peaceful place, and you have captured it briliantly!

Lovely spot, and everyone think Oz is brown and burnt, or the Beach. A wall hanger.

good day
