At the end of Currumbin Valley there is a National Park with paved walkways to boardwalks and lookouts to waterfalls and rock pools.
I went up there to get a few shots and ran into a couple of mud clad hikers. They said, "jump that fence and follow the river for about an hour and a bit. It's amazing. you'll get good shots there! And by the way there is no track."
I thought, what the hell, and set off. Two hours later my ankles were covered in leeches, my boots full of water, and I discovered a miller tripod makes for a good walking stick. But at the end, I discovered a truly magical spot. So thanks to those hikers. I got to shoot for over an hour - in the middle of nowhere - miles from anyone or anywhere. Fantastic.
Shot on Sony EX1. Tried every setting in the book. Shot on 2 ND's with Extreme Slow Shutter - for kicks. All colours shot in camera. Music is 'saltwater' by the very talented Chicane: chicanemusic.com
