Weekend Wanderings: Tree Tops at Apollo Bay
In a couple of months I’m going to Apollo Bay for a few days. I’m looking forward to it, but it also reminds me of the trip I had there last year and there was one excursion that I never showed any photos of, well except for a couple of special ones. We had gone to the Otway Fly Treetop Adventures and went to do the Treetop Walk. It was quite an amazing walk. Lovely to walk above the rainforest.
There is the path, up there in the sky. It is not for the faint hearted, and I think if you were not good with heights it wouldn’t be good to go. It is very solid, but you can see straight through the bottom and every time someone moves the whole platform shakes. We were lucky and for the most part it was just the two of us on it.
This was probably one of the scariest parts. It is on the platform and then you climb even higher. It sways, you can feel it swaying, but you have to believe that it is solid and you won’t fall off it. The views up there were quite amazing.
You really are up in the treetops.
The views straight down were quite surreal too. It isn’t often you get to see the trees from the top down.
Rainforests are so pretty and everywhere you look you find something new to photograph.
This image was one that as I was trying to get it I realised how much I wanted a macro lens. They were so tiny, and my lens just wasn’t getting what I wanted. This image has been cropped a lot.
It is a lovely place to go, but be aware, you go a long way down to get to the platform to take you around, and then you have to walk all the way back up. It was worth it though. You do have to pay money to do it, but you have to do that for a lot of things these days.
I have more photos for you now, which I will put into a gallery for you. I am off for more photography with the filters again this morning. I hope you are having a lovely weekend where ever you are in the world.
