Weekend Wandering: Warburton and Lala Falls Part 2
Back in Warburton today. I thought we might have a look at the trip back from the waterfall and some images I took along the Yarra River in Warburton. If you missed the trip to the waterfall and images of it then take a look at yesterday’s post, Weekend Wandering: Warburton and Lala Falls Part 1.
On the way back from the waterfall it was all downhill and we moved a lot faster than we did on the way up. I think moving a lot faster we didn’t see as much.
This little guy was a fun find, though we had to move very quickly to get it. I think this is a skink lizard, well that is what my husband said. I got about 4 images and then it was over the other side of the log.
I just love the images along the path, it looks so beautiful and peaceful. I hope you can tell we were walking downhill.
Warburton is on the Yarra River, but it looks so different to what you see of it in the city. In Warburton it is barely more than a trickle and there are lots of places to take photos of the water running over rocks. There is a big walk you can do along the river here, and I would like to do that one day, we just did a small part. The weather wasn’t great, and we thought it would be better and cooler to walk through a rain forest, we were right.
There were lots of flowers out along the river and we were enjoying taking photos of them. As I said, it would be nice to go back and just spend a few hours wandering along the river, with my tripod as well. Could get some magnificent photos, I can see them now, so I know I will be back.
I am just going to show the images in a gallery now. The first lot will be the walk back, the second part will be from the first image of the bridge, and then it will be photos from around the river. The cool change has come through and hopefully the temperatures will be much lower now, we will all be breathing a sigh of relief. I also hope the rain that has come with the cool change will help put out all the fires that have been burning around the state.
