[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken in the early morning in the Macedon State Forest. It's not truly a rain forest, but ferns can be found in its more sheltered areas.

Kangaroos, echidna and many types of birds make their homes here. Temperatures range from around 0 degrees celcius in winter through to about 35 degrees celcius in summer.

It snows here about twice a year, but the snow rarely settles on the ground for more than a day.

There have been several bushfires that have gone through or near this area, but it's amazing how quickly the forest regenerates after one has passed through.

This is one of the closest forested areas to Melbourne, which is about 60 km away to the south.

Great shot!
There is something amazing in your photo. I love these beams of light among the trees. It makes very mysterious atmosphere.
I like it very much.
Well done!

Very mystique photo indeed, but a too bad it's overexposed. Well composed and presented. Good POV. TFS.

Such a sense of height you've captured here. I love the light rays coming down and the POV you have here. Well done.

Hi Peter, welcome to TN. Very moody and mysterious shot here. I love how the sunbeams shine through the trees. A bit overexposed, something I have problems with myself, but very well done. TFS - thanks for sharing.

Hello Peter, very nice perspective on this one and I love the play of light between the trees...very well done.
