Default Cunnawarra mist

I've been gradually sorting through my photos and came upon this set taken on Australia Day 2009 (26 January). We had set out for Cunnawarra National Park to suss out a fishing spot we'd heard was very good at Wattle Flat on the Styx River. When we arrived at the turn off we were met with heavy morning fog, the remnants of heavy overnight rain and a warning that the road was unsuitable when wet unless you had 4WD. We did attempt the road in, but decided discretion was the best option and turned back.

#1 at the Cunnawarra turn off


#2 the road down into the mists and onward to Wattle Flat (the road we turned back on)


# 3 the road back home to Armidale


Interestingly enough the theme for that year was "Visit your local National Park for Australia Day". We did eventually get to Wattle Flat - an absolutely beautiful fishing spot - but not until a few weeks later when the weather had cleared up.

These were taken with my first camera, an Olympus C-725 UZ.

thank you for viewing.
Bernice

I really like the mood of these pics. I think you captured the fog very well.

Pretty much all that I know of landscapes in Australia are the ones in Mad Max and Crocodile Dundee.

Ooops! missed getting back to you jj and vv - thank you for your comments. There's a mystery in fog that has a special appeal for me.
