LEURA FALLS CREEK WITHIN A WET AND FOGGY MORNING

RUNNER-UP, Monochrome

Leura Falls Creek flows over the southern escarpment at Bridal Veil Falls. Further upstream, the creek meanders through a Jurassic-looking, tree fern–infested bush area before it forms a cascading drop to the falls. The prehistoric mood of the locale is enhanced whenever there is early morning fog rising up from the valley.
