Fruit Bat Falls

part of it anyway. Couldn't get a good shot of all the falls due to people. It is like a mini Niagara Falls with a horse shoe and a straight falls, on a much smaller scale, and it is all in Queensland.

After looking at the first image I expected the falls to be much higher. The people put them in perspective. Quite a beautiful place.

We locals get annoyed by all the tourists too! Buy up all the milk, bacon and cereal in the supermarkets during the tourist season... ()

Great shots Trev -

Thanks Heinrich. I would have love a wide shot with no humans, but they had a right to be there.

Thanks Susan. The whole place in the top end is, but in the wet season most of the roads are closed due to the monsoon.

I would have loved a wide shot with humans. I used to time my pictures to avoid them, but then I realized how much life / vitality they can add to a scene.

Normally yes, but having them in the shot, it just didn't look right this time. The top ends natural beauty needs nothing else.
