Rogers Rainforest Walk by Tracie Louise Photography

Rainforest Walk at Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve - Guest Post by Tracie Louise Photography.

One thing I am very conscious of when exploring our countries natural beauty is to remember to look at the small things. It's easy to be impressed by tall majestic trees and bird filled canopies, but it's the tiny things that can have such a big impact.

Recently I visited a small pocket of Rainforest (Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve) just 5 minutes from home, with a 30 minute walking track through it. I decided to go for a walk through there right after last nights rain, and it made for some pretty effects as the morning sun came out.

This photo below is taken in macro of a spider. I was walking through the reserve with my 500mm lens on, hoping to do some bird spotting, however I didn't see any after the rain, and the only other thing a 500mm lens is good for is macro at long distance. There were a surprising amount of spiders there considering how wet it was the day I was there.

 Each time I drive past the reserve I am in awe of the beauty of the trees.  I simple adore nature and am passionate about helping to preserve it. "Drop of Dew" featured below, is one of my favourite images, it is actually used on my business card.

I very much look forward to seeing what else I can capture during my next visit to this wonderful little pocket of rainforest. I look forward to assisting the Friends of Rogers Reserve with their conservation efforts - this kind of work is what I live for.
