Reflections at Rainbow Falls
An overcast day offers the perfect conditions to capture Rainbow Falls in Blackdown Tableland National Park, Queensland.
This week’s reader photo was taken by Mitchell in Blackdown Tableland National Park, central Queensland.
“This national park is one of the lesser-known parks in Queensland. Located 180km west of Rockhampton and rising high above the surrounding plains – this park features gorges, amazing lookouts and tranquil waterfalls. Central Queensland is home to some of the biggest coal mines in Australia, and you wouldn’t expect this paradise to be nestled smack bang in the middle of if all! I’m lucky enough to live only 40 minutes from this park, so this is where I go to get away,” says Mitchell.
“This place really comes alive during the wet season, there are so many waterfalls and creeks you can explore, and nine times out of 10 you will have the place all to yourself, like I did at this location. It was an overcast, rainy day – perfect for waterfall photos – and while everyone was hiding indoors I was out capturing this amazing image. The water is black due to all the leaf litter in the water – this just enhanced the reflections, giving me an almost perfect mirror image.”
