DescriptionJust thirty minutes drive from Townsville at the foot of the Paluma Ranges is this world class natural water way. Absolutely in a class of it's own. In the top right of the photograph is where the rockslides can be enjoyed. The rocks are so smooth it is just sensational. Just above the slides is a huge swimming hole. Such an amazing place to just sit back and relax and soak up all that nature has to offer. Anyone would think I liked this place.
Peter Gray, Townsville Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement Beautiful one day, perfect the next. This is my home, Townsville in North Queensland. We have the Great Barrier Reef one side and Tropical Rain Forrest the other. Breath-taking beaches and Islands all the way up and down our coast, plus, amazing waterfalls, creeks and rivers just a stone's throw away. My wife, Jeanette, and I have a photography business (mainly weddings and portraits) which we have operated for the past seven years. We have been blessed with five beautiful children and now with three grand children. All of them living not to far away. It's always good to get out of town and get into nature. I love photographing people and weddings but I much prefer capturing a beautiful landscape. The gear I am using at present is a Nikon D700 on a solid tripod with a cable release. I carry both a wide angle lens and a modest telephoto lens.
