Showered in beauty

By AG STAFF | April 4, 2016

For the unique experience of walking behind a waterfall, head to the stunning Crystal Shower Falls in NSW.

This week’s reader photo was taken by Matt Donovan from Gillen in the Northern Territory.

“I’d visited quite a number of waterfalls during my time as a landscape photographer, but nothing really compares to the beauty of Crystal Shower Falls,” said Matt.

“It’s one of those rare waterfalls you can actually stand behind! I made my way off the main tourist track and down to the small cascades beneath the main fall, carefully jumping from rock to rock. With my tripod precariously wedged between a few moss-covered rocks, I placed my CPL filter (helps cut out reflections in wet foliage) over the lens and captured the image you see here.”
