The image depicts the deepest part of Hancock Gorge that I was able to access during my recent trip to the national park. The gorge has an eerie silence about it, and I spent about an hour just revelling in this location’s beauty. It was truly spectacular - like few other places I’ve ever been.

Cool flowing water drags you into the image, encouraging exploration of the golden pool at the base of the waterfall. The softness of the water contrasts with the solidity of the confining rock, just as the cool blue light in the foreground contrasts with the warm light reflecting about the distant chamber.
