Lady Bath Falls, Mount Buffalo National Park, Victoria, Australia

There was really heavy downpour in the Mount Buffalo National Park the day we arrived there. It was raining without stopping for hours. I wasn’t expecting any rain at all and I started thinking about going to some dry place in New South Wales instead of spending long weekend in rainy Victoria. But roughly at four the rain stopped and I decided to check waterfalls. Gee Whiz!!!! The Eurobin creek was roaring and you could hear how the stream was moving stones in the river. This river is always full of water but this time it was overfilled. The only option to make a photo was to stand on a small wooden bridge. It wasn’t possible to get closer. After two seconds the lens was covered in splashes – no time to make a shot. And even on the bridge it was really difficult to make a shot as it was trembling because of the roaring river. I thought it the photo would be blurred because of shake but to my surprise it was pin-sharp.

    Very nice, Ilya. You can just feel the power of the water in the photo.

    Thank you, Beau! Tried to do that. I’m glad you feel it. Unfortunately such powerful rivers can be seen only after heavy rains (which are rare here).

    How funny… I was at this very same waterfall only the day before… beautiful sunshine, water temperatures and a really nice waterfall to photograph. But your image shows the true potential of this great spot. I can only dream how the upper eurobin falls must have looked. I was able to get some great angles shooting next to the treefern in the upper left of your photo… amazing how I would have been swept downstream just 24 hours later :-)
