Fantastic FNQ photo Friday
Tropical rainforests give way to bucolic dairy country and gently rolling hills. And the waterfall circuit.
A 10km dirt track leads you around three picturesque waterfalls - the most famous of them being Millaa Millaa. But for photographers I think the beautiful Ellinjaa Falls is a better option.
A short path down the hill from the car park leads you to a small stream. The water is clear and filled with tiny rocks and boulders which all make great leading lines for wide angle shots. The falls themselves are surrounded by the lush green of rainforest plants and, especially during the wet season, the waters flows in a majestic pattern down a pitch black rock face.
All wonderful subjects for landscape photographers and not as busy as Millaa Millaa. You could easily spend hours here and not run out of wonderful things to point your lenses at.
