Raeburn Orchard and Lesmurdie Falls - WTWW

Drove down to Roleystone to have a look about Raeburn Orchard yesterday for this week's outing, which brought up a minor glitch, in that there's a $3 charge to enter the Orchards, but no EFTPOS available; as I don't carry cash whilst on a shoot, that curtailed that particular plan, so I was reduced to taking a few snaps from the roads nearby for the time being.

Have to say though,  one of their neighbours has a fabulous collection of brightly coloured daisies!

I moved on from there to revisit another location, Lesmurdie Falls. Last time I visited, the region had had several days of extremely heavy rain, and that day was no exception, soaking me to the skin whilst trying desperately to avoid rain on the lens.  Yesterday, however, was an absolutely beautiful day, with the spring wildflowers out in force, and the Falls twinkling in the sunlight. I'm thinking that I'm going to make the spot a seasonal event, as it'll be interesting to see the changes through the year.

Although the weather forecast was absolutely dire, I kept to the WTWW promise, and headed out to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve, hoping to catch some shots of Sixty Foot Falls. I managed to make it up to the Eagle View Trail, and was blessed with some great views over the wilderness back to Perth city before the rain hit hard. Unfortunately as there was an unsavoury looking gent hanging about in the carpark near the falls I bottled out of that part of the trip and headed off.

So I arrived in Mundy Regional Park, site of the incredible Lesmurdie Falls, and, on that day, the extremely well named Cascades. This visit was definitely worth the drenching!
