Springbrook national park had 800mm + (31") of rain over the last week. Our dam was 48% before the rain and today 80% full with more to come as it flows down the mountain. Lucky, the dam was doubled in capacity and only completed late last year.

Twin Falls, the mist flattened this one.

Well you're dam lucky... ahem... sorry.


As far as the photos go, I feel like the first has potential. The framing is descent, but I don't like how the falls are cut off, nor how I don't like how I can't see the bottom. Seeing a bit of a mist is a little teasing to me, haha. The water also looks overexposed.

The second one, I'm not a fan. The contrast is really distracting and the foliage in the foreground does nothing for the photo.

... but perhaps you weren't looking for a critique and were just sharing some photos of a special place. If that's the case, than mission accomplished.

Thanks for the comment Trevor, appreciate it. Yes I agree with the bottom of the fall being cut off, unfortunately that was the best position with the tree/shrub in the way. There is a 4 Km trail down to the bottom but in heavy rain or fire threats the national park closes all trails. I'm not a fan of dreamy water but I think that is close to what it actual looked like at that time, maybe a faster shutter speed would have improved it. My ego improved when our local daily printed it as readers best pic.

I agree with #2 comment.


Cheers
