It took four weekend trips to Springbrook, in the hinterland of Queensland’s Gold Coast, for me to find this location and be there at just the right time (pre-dawn) to get this image. Very fortunately for me, on this particular day there was no wind and a beautiful purple hue came across the sky. Landscape photography truly is a lesson in patience.

Photography teaches patience; the smallest change can sometimes light up what seems an otherwise lifeless scene.
When the winds are calm the still waters of Lake Wivenhoe can provide some special moments.
