Default Along the Wollomombi

Along the Wollomombi

Up the highway and a couple of kilometres past the turn-off to Wollomombi Falls is a Rural Lands Protection Board holding paddock. It is upstream from, and outside of, the National Park boundary. As part of the Travelling Stock Route network that criss-crosses rural Australia and known by many as the ‘Long Paddock’, the TSRs are lifesavers for livestock owners who walk their stock during localised dry times.

But to us they’re another place to explore with our cameras. We made our first exploratory visit a fortnight ago. (All but the last were taken by ‘meself’.)

#1 Starting upstream and walking down river toward the National Park.


#2


#3


#4 Then round a bend (behind the rocks at the top right of #3) a change of pace


#5


#6


#9 and around the next bend ... this one is Mark’s. He has it pegged as a fishin’ spot.


We’ll certainly be going back.

Bernice

Beautiful! I really like the composition of #1. And my second favorite is #3; it almost looks like a swimming pool, with the rocks on the left. It almost gives the illusion that it is a square space. Thank you for sharing!

G'day Bernice

Like 'em all - esp the running water shots
Q- does your camera have a filter thread on the lens? ... if so an ND8 would slow down the shutter speed to make the water look very 'etheral' and cotton-woolley

Regards, Phil

Thanks for the comments Phil pleased you like theses. No my lens doesn't have a thread. The only way I can use a filter is to use an adapter which means I can't use the the 'wide' (26 mm) end of the zoom. To be honest I'm not a great fan of the really cotton-woolly effect. I like to be able to see some texture. I could have stopped down further - these were taken on f5.6 (Olympus SP 590 range is f2.8 to f8)

Cheers

Bernice
