It was into the archives for Monochrome Wednesday today and after searching through heaps of files I found one taken at Turpin Falls in 2016.
The image was taken on a day trip out of the city with my friend Chris. It was the first time I had been there with her, but not my first visit to the falls. I had been there once before a few years before, though there hadn’t been much water in it that time.
Chris and I picked the timing to be just after a massive rainfall. As you can see from the photo below there was a huge amount of water flowing down the waterfall. It was gushing.
We climbed down to the bottom, there is a way down, but it isn’t easy to get there. If I remember correctly it was closed off. It seems to be something that the government body who looks after our parks does. When they are damaged or whatever instead of repairing or fixing what has happened they just close them. It is really sad. Of course, part of the reason for that the State Government doesn’t give them enough money to look after them correctly. It is really sad.
When I saw this as I was going through my photos I thought it would be a good one to convert to monochrome. I like monochrome waterfalls, do you?
It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you enjoy the monochrome images. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook group, TPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.
