Default Apsley Falls

2010 was heralded in with three weeks of torrential rain in the New England Tablelands region of New South Wales. During this time we visited Walcha and the Apsley Falls in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. The falls were spectacular! #1 and #5 are mine, the others were taken by Mark (Nikon D3000). Exif data embedded.

# 1 which I submitted for this fortnight's BiWeekly challenge 'Making Music and Sound'

We're going back in late August, but don't expect to see such action this time - the falls could even be almost dry.

Bernice,

The first picture here is quite giddying(?) Nothing for people with fear of heights. Often wondered what it is that is pulling from below.

The last picture also great, simple and clean

#5 is my favourite as it has a mystic feel to it.

Thanks for your comments Torgny and spy. We'd visited the falls before and marvelled - but with the flooding they were particularly impressive this time.

Torgny you have every right to feel giddy. That's a 65 metre drop. (wikipaedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apsley_Falls )

We were hoping to be able to get round the other side of the gorge and on to the second falls when we go back in late August but the bridge may not have been replaced by then.

Cheers

Bernice
