Daintree looking lush, green and tropically tantalising.
Daintree National Park Photos - Images by Paul Dymond
The wet season in this part of the world is long, hot and very, very wet. Plus there's usually a couple of cyclones and the humidity levels go through the roof. But when it's all over and far north Queensland has had its life-giving top up of water then we find out what it was all for.
At this time of the year the forests are lush and green. The creeks and rivers are clear and flowing with all the run-off from the surrounding tropical rainforest-covered mountains. And it just looks spectacular.
Arguably the jewel in the crown of our tropical rainforests is the world-heritage listed Daintree National Park. Enjoy these images and if you're local consider popping up to take a look - the ferry over the Daintree River is free for us! Yay. If you're from out of town then now would be a great time for a flying visit. My one tip for rainforest photography - leave the polariser on and don't forget the tripod.
