Yesterday, we spent a day in the rainforest behind the Gold Coast with our daughter (and ph.ca member Chantelle) who is a very good photographer now, and also my sister Belinda (another ph.ca member) who is learning photography quickly.
The Springbrook rainforests are among the oldest on the planet, harking back to the Gondwana Continent before Australia drifted away to be alone with New Zealand.
These are some shots I took while helping Belinda 'see the light' so to speak ...

Great set and play with the light, MA! I love the "sparkling" background in the first picture and the backlighted moss in the fourth picture!

Well, they are definitely being taught by a pro in the lighting dep't. Love the light play in all of these, but especially the first shot, with that beautiful patterned bokeh.

I have to agree with this!

Very cool set. Number 3 is my favourite. It's just got the most magical quality of light about it. Thanks for sharing! :)

The light makes a couple of them look like they should be crawling! Interesting play.

Very nice job of backlighting in this set. My favorite is the moss one, it really stands out.
