Mount Tamborine Trip Day 1

This entry was posted on Sep 30 2011

Upon arrival at Mt Tamborine National Park, we went straight to the Curtis Fall. I was really looking forward to taking photos of Curtis Fall. It has been almost 4 years since the last time i took photos of waterfall in the national park at Coffs Harbour. Unlike the other waterfalls at Springbrook and Lamingtons National Park, where you have to walk at least an hour, getting to Curtis Fall is much easier – only 15 minutes walk. The downside is that Curtis Fall is quite small compare with the others.

Tried shooting the Curtis Fall from a different angle. I think we can stay there for a whole day.

Also tried some black and white photos. I always like black and white photos of the bush cause it makes the trees really stand out.

After taking photos of the Curtis Fall, we went for some lunch then check in at the park. We sort of hanging around the park looking for photo opportunities. Luckily, there were quite a lot of birds around the park.

Caught this duck landing on the pond. The photos turned out to be better than i thought, consider it was at least an hour after sunset and i was using iso 12800. Thanks to the high ISO performance, i was able to still use a fairly fast shutter to capture the moment the duck landed

I also find a lot of opportunities for insect macro photos.

A moth i found inside our room.

Here’s something that will definitely be found in a national park – mosquitoes. For some reason, they don’t ┬áresponse very well. That gives us plenty of time for macro.
