Just a short drive south of Sydney is some incredible bush land that has many hidden gems amongst it, the gymea lylies being one of  them. They poke out above all the surrounding bush by a good meter or two a bit like an emu’s head. This area is in the Sydney Royal National park and is along the coastline bush walk from Wattamolla Beach. Just around the corner from here I was astounded to witness the famous Curracurrong Falls. It’s actually a set of twin falls which fall off a cliff about 100 feet into the ocean, truly spectacular!

I love shooting as the light is fading at this time of day, when the colours are starting to pop and bring out features in the natural landscape. Being out in the Australian bush for me is such an inspirational moment, from the smells of the shrubs to the sounds of the birds. Looking forward to sharing the waterfall with you next.
