Did you know that Australia is host to the oldest rainforest on the planet? The Daintree Rainforest is a tropical wonderland north of Mossman, Queensland, on the coast, north of Cairns. It is estimated to be over one hundred and thirty-five million years old and is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian mainland (around 1200 square kms).

Although I had been to Mossman Gorge many times over the years, I had never really seen it vertically. But, as Nelson Mandela once said: “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.” In this shot I was determined to view the place anew. The vertical format was like creating a doorway into the scene, which viewers could step into. In this way a sense of mystery was conveyed.
