Images from a walk at Maiala - a National Park at Mount Glorious, just outside Brisbane. These are some of the shots. (Lens info is wrong and I can't edit it. It was the Pentax-DA 18-55 F3.5-5.6 II)

+1 on the first. That's beautiful country, though it looks as if "off-trail" distances would be measured in "hours per klick" rather than kilometers-per-hour!

I was hiking along those same trails at Maiala last August, while I was in the area on vacation. (I live in Alberta, Canada.) What truly wonderful places those rain forests are! I was there rather late and as the forest grew darker there were so many more sounds from creatures emerging- some sounds quite eerie... Another pleasant spot along the Mt. Glorious road was at Jolly's Lookout- but such a contrast, it being regular bushland. The forests here in Canada are quite different. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the comments. I struggle a bit and it is good to know these worked. My wife loves the first one, too - wants to get it done as a print on canvas.
