Re: Canyon, Booloomba Creek.

Walter Glover and RoganJosh are right about effort. A 4x5 negative is a marvellous thing: 10 stops of "dynamic range" and detail all over it. The tricky part is getting that content out on to photographic paper. The top left hand corner was a 4 stop "fuzzy" burn with a grade 0 f...

Re: Canyon, Booloomba Creek.

Well caught Mick. The place is actually Boowinda Gorge carved by a creek of the same first name, I think. My filing system had it the BOO- section and I didn't check the fine print.

Re: Boulder, Girraween

Yes! Well seen. Girraween National Park is a big place so it's a tough guess as to location. Mount Norman track, perhaps?
