I took myself off on a country drive last week – scouting out new photo locations. Here is the map of the drive (minus the side trips exploring country roads)
First stop was the Minto crag area – a well known volcanic ring dyke right in Boonah’s backyard. It’s difficult to grasp it from the ground but a quick look on Google Earth will show you the obvious ring formation.
This photo was taken from the eastern side at sunrise. It’s a 6 image panorama.
From a little further down the road, I would have loved to get closer to the water but I don’t know the landowner.
While I was out taking photos I also had my Sony action camera taking a timelapse sequence – 1 photo every 5 seconds over and hour or so.
Here’s the very basic setup I am using:
Then I continued up the range, stopping to have a quick look at Teviot falls which was running really nicely after the recent rains.
Then up towards the Condamine valley, up through Spring creek and a quick pause at Dagg’s falls.
As far as I know there isn’t a way down there but this view is about 5meters from the carpark.
Then it was on to Browns Falls which I hadn’t ever been to before. They are about a 20 minute walk up a lovely creek and well worth the effort when the creek is flowing nicely
You live in a most beautiful part of Queensland x
Ah, so this is in Australia?? (Even with the map, I couldn’t figure out a country or state). Great photos!
Hi Frank, yes in South East Queensland, Australia. About an hour from Brisbane.
