Photographer's Note

Hi all,
This is the Majestic Mt Barney (1356 metres), the second-highest mountain in South-East Queensland and third-highest in Queensland. The mountain is located in Mt Barney National Park. Experienced bushwalkers who are well-equipped can enjoy the special attractions of the remote park. Most of the trails are unmarked and quite dangerous. There are a number of routes leading to Mt Barney's Summit. These include: Eagles Ridge, North-East Ridge, Logans Ridge, Peasant's Ridge, and South-East Ridge.
The most challenging summit route is Loganís Ridge.
For the less experienced climber, Peasantís Ridge, also known as South Ridge is a better choice. This route is regarded as easy by experienced off-track walkers but still has difficult spots. There is also some danger and deaths from falls have occurred, so difficulties and dangers should not be underestimated.
Walkers must have navigational and bushwalking skills, and sound physical fitness.
The Lower Portals and Yellow Pinch areas are the only sections that have maintained tracks and basic facilities, and are located around the base of the mountain. There is also the Upper Portals area, which requires a 4WD, unless you are prepared to walk an extra 20km by walking along the 4WD track.

My photo shows Mt Barney as seen from Barney View. I'm particularly attracted to the shape of Mt Barney, with its various ridges and peaks.
I hope you all like my shot of this very majestic and unique mountain.
