Hi Miker *from the Group A1-Unique Australia . Great capture almost abstract **L.
The tragedy has taken the lives of the pilot and his wife and 2 other couples all of whom were friends. It is more grief for their families. As a child, it has been reported that the pilot, Des Porter, survived a fatal plane crash in which his brother and his pilot father were killed. Their wider family are stricken again.
My photo was taken on a flight with my son over this area that we love and respect for it is rugged country. You have seen my other photos from that flight of Yabba Falls, so you know how rugged the terrain is.
Hi Ian,Wanganui is hard to access and is deeply rainforested,so while a botanist's delight for close work it's difficult to convey the lie of the land. It's quite like a Blue Mountains or Carnavon gorge in form. It needs an enterprising photographer [just about anyone younger than me!] to use the clifftops,or an ultralite...though there is no place to bail safely for quite a few kilometres north or south.
One of my favourite field sites and case studies for geomorphology classes!
Welcome to my gallery, heavylambs. I am glad you know of the secret too. With the tragic aircrash in the area this week, the rugged ranges to the west of Imbil are in the news at the moment, but the Falls will always be a challenge. Lives have been lost here, too, but I hope no more are.
Thanks for exploring the series.
Regards from Imbil in the Yabba Valley.
Love this shot,Ian. Magic time of day.
