I took this image at the end of a two day landscape photography workshop that I lead along the Great Ocean Road. Earlier in the morning my client and I had witnessed a stunning sunrise at the Twelve Apostles and we were slowly heading back to Melbourne.

As the sky became slowly overcast this proofed to be a fantastic opportunity to stop by one the many waterfalls in the Ottway Ranges. This time is was Hopetoun Falls' turn. At the carpark I jumped into my waders and we made the short stroll to the waterfall. After searching around for various compositions, I jumped into the stream and carefully positioned myself around. I had drowned a camera before - not a pleasant outcome and it becomes quite expensive!
I was very happy with this compostion and fired off a couple of frames.
In the end there was a casualty: on my way back to the path, my remote shutter release detached and floated away - never to be seen again.

I hope you enjoy.
