Hopetoun Falls in the Great Otway National Park is a peaceful spot that provides lots of opportunities for the keen photographer. Situated just 5 km from Beech Forest and around 26 km (20 minutes) drive east from Lavers Hill, a rest spot along the Great Ocean Road, the falls can be seen from a viewing platform, close to the car park, or after a 30 minute walk to the base of the falls.

This particular image was actually made from the car park. The beautiful Myrtle Beech and Californian Redwoods dominate the scene and I remember well the sweet, fresh air, beauty and quiet power that seemed to exist within that stand of trees. I found it a very straightforward exercise to organise the individual elements within the frame into a relatively cohesive design.
