There are many waterfalls across Australia and few that align with the Milky Way with a large open sky above.
The first time I photographed this waterfall there was an amazing green airglow on the horizon. Half of the sky was radiating green covering parts of the Milky Way. I loved the photo I captured and went to sleep in the back of the car. With no hotels around it made the most logical sense.
I went back a few more times trying new compositions and even went to the bottom of the falls for a new perspecive. However, I was drawn to the top again and I wanted to capture a very high quality version to see the fine details. So I slept in the car again and waited until the next night to capture it when the alignment was possible.
There was no green airglow this night but the raw simplicity of the waterfall and stars combined produced a magnificent scene. Meteors were flying in the sky and the sound of water added to the experience of being uder the stars. There's few places that connect earth to the stars and this is one of them for you to enjoy.
