I just had enough time to briefly visit the edge of the Daintree rainforest while I was in Port Douglas to photograph the Low Isles lighthouse. So here’s an image, just for a taste.
Photographing in rainforest can be difficult because there is so much detail it can be hard to isolate a composition. That’s not so much the problem here but the harsh daylight meant that the range of tones between shadows and highlights were greater than the slide film could fully capture.
I think this was just north of Cairns and I was probably driving north to Port Douglas. This is a view down the coast, looking south, with a nice range of tones in the rocks, trees, sea and sky.
The red streak at the top right is car tail lights disappearing around a bend in the highway. If you follow down diagonally from there to the bottom left corner, you will see a curious object just beside the water’s edge. There is probably a dramatic and tragic story of how that got to be there.
