Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Boranup in the rain

The winter is dragging on and we seem to be getting storm after storm. It has been raining almost continuously for 24 hours now. I thought it would be interesting to see Boranup forest in the rain, and it was worth the trip. The light was very good – normally it is very contrasty in the forest, but in the rain it is a soft even light.

For those who are not familiar with the South West, Boranup is a re-growth Karri Forest that was originally logged in the 1920’s. All the trees are roughly the same size, and as they have been competing with each other for sunlight they have all grown straight and tall. It is the westernmost stand of Karri in Western Australia.
