Tasmania's Russell Falls

This shot of the Russell Falls in Tasmania was taken during a wonderful holiday in 2006. The falls became Tasmania's first nature reserve  in 1885 and are located in the Mount Field National Park (in the island's south-west) which comprises a remarkably diverse 16,265 hectares (40,191 acres).  A "must see" for every visitor to the picturesque island of Tasmania!

What a fresh beautiful photo! Running water always seems to refresh the air. Living in a country with thousands of beautiful waterfalls, I really appreciate this picture!

Beautiful photo!
The bird sat still for a long time, so I didn't have to use a fast shutter speed.
Have a great Sunday.

Very pretty and how wonderful that Tasmania knew back in the late 1800s that such lovely places needed to be preserved!

Great shot. I love Tasmania and its natural splendour. I don't remember seeing these falls on any one of our 3 visits. Guess we have to go again.
