About 2 hours drive south west of us lies Lake Moogerah, nestled in the valleys of the Scenic Rim, ancient volcanic mountains and heritage listed gondwanna rainforest forest.

We spent half a day out there yesterday enjoying the sun and occasional rain showers, but mostly the beauty of the lake and surrounds.

These photos are taken from two sides of the lake and most feature Mt Greville as well.

A long drive is always worth it if you are to end up in a scenic place like this. I love the panoramic shot that you did as it greatly shows how peaceful and beautiful that place is. This is an excellent series, by the way. :thumbup:

Good morning, Steve. What a wonderful place and set of pictures. I think Nr. 1 and 5 are my favourites. But the whole set is a great presentation of the place.

Thanks HBG ... it really IS lovely there. We got home and about 2 hours later my wife was asking where I was taking her next weekend because she loved Moogerah so much. I have a plan ;)

Yup I also really dig this set - well done.
Shot 3 for me please - dig the drama big time.
One thing I noticed (got distracted by :) ) is on the entire left edge (before your frame) from top to bottom there seems to be 1-2 pixels that look they they should have been cropped.

Thanks Casil, XPW and Marko.

I didn't quite line up two of those photos properly Marko which caused those wayward pixels. I didn't even notice them. Amazing.

Actually, no it's not now I think about it. I use 'snap to guidelines' and if it doesn't quite fit then the guidelines hide something like this ... then I upload to Flickr, only see a thumbnail there and then post here. Should have at least noticed it here though.

Great set. That 2 hour drive was sure worth it to spend time in that beautiful place.

Thanks asnow.

In NZ some people barely drive further than 2 hrs away from their home in their lifetimes. Here, a 2 hr trip each way is nothing.
Had things gone better for us this year, right now, today actually, we'd be returning from a 5200 km road trip with an average of 600 km per day. Unfortunately finances just wouldn't allow it.
