Paddy's River Falls, Australia

Located in the western foothills of the Snowy Mountains, Paddy's River Falls have a height of about 20 meters. I had previously done some night photos here a year and a half ago and it had been on my list of sites to revisit. Recent heavy rain and melt from the snow fields meant that the water was thundering over the escarpment when I spent the night there last night, hearing the constant roar of the falls and feeling the ground shaking slightly beneath me whilst watching the stars drift slowly through the sky.
Canon 5DMkII, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 3200, 30 Seconds.
Green colouring in the sky towards the horizon is airglow.
