Natural Bridge, Gold Coast, Australia
« on: January 02, 2018, 02:15:27 AM »

Natural Bridge, a rock formation intersected by a creek, in Australia's Gold Coast, just before sunset.

Nice!

I know the place well and have shot there several times.
In 2010/11 during the floods a huge tree got wedged in the hole, IMHO anyway, spoiling the shot. The flood event in late March 2017 removed the tree - thank goodness!

You picked a good day to shoot with a fair bit water coming through. I have seen that waterfall reduced to barely a trickle but I reckon the rest of the summer should have good flow given the long-term weather forecast...

I checked the weather, sun and river forecasts and flew up there as a day trip, mostly to rack up frequent flyer credit...

Luckily, the place is only about an hours drive from my place - so I can pretty much pick the day I want - usually overcast following good rain a day or two before. The river and waterfall are great but shooting in the rainforest also then becomes a treat...
