Girraween National Park, is an elevated mountainous plateau area, about 250 km south west of Brisbane. Taken from near the top, of one of the 2 granite outcrops, known as "The Pyramids". This area is over 1,000 metres above sea level, & occasionally gets snow. This year, only sleet. The old apple orchards at the bottom,long since abandoned, are now part of the park. Over 44 wineries & vineyards, surround this national park on the Qld / NSW border.

Nice view Chris. Good diagonal line formed by the stones in front which grant a good depth to the composition. Very nice perspective. Well done!

Another country and immediatly another colorsetting, remarkable, good compo with the diagonal front detail of the rock towards the deep landscape bathing in a sea of light and shadow where sun pierced through the haevy clouds.

The diagonal line of the rocks cuts the picture into two interesting and contrasting halfs.Beautiful colors and contrasts,the play of light and shadow on the landscape looks great.

The rocks with the splendid colours also of the vegetation, you have chosen a good angle taking this shot, excellent depth and great perspective.
Very well seen!

This is a good choice to show a great surface of the cliff, this is a very attractive surface.
A good landscape as deep as possible and a nice contrast between the clif and the green hills.
I like it

Très belle prise de vue aux couleurs magistrales.
J'aime ce rocher qui trace une belle diagonale dans le cadre
Merci pour le partage.

strange but beautiful composition with the rock (hill) in the forground ... I like the two triangles in the composition. Nice colours and beautiful sky.

Good use of a compositional diagonal in the foreground, Chris, and an interesting blend there of the rock textures and the vegetation emerging from in between. Moreover an interesting contrast with the lush greenery of the undulating landscape that unfolds towards the back. Nice "oldie".
I'm taking a timeout and will be back in October. Take care.

Very nice scene. I like this picture, the sense, the meaning and the stormy day are great.
The magnific colors are great and the point of view is very fine.

Hi Chris. You did very well with the composition. It's nice too see a shot from your country every once in a while. The only thing lacking is the scan quality and clarity but we still get a great sense for how beautiful this place is. Nice work Chris!

A strange perspective with the light on the first plan and the dark on the back.

Hi Chris, I like the diagonal layout of the picture. A very nicely framed picture. The plant on the rock with yellow-ish color makes a well contrast with the blue colored plant on the lower ground. A well taken picture.

It seems, here are two pictures, the effect is nice done in this way, Chris !

Hi Chris - the granite diagonal works very well here against the deeper green hills, I also like the hint of autumn colour on the vegetation.
