UNDER RAINFOREST WATERFALLS

$315.00

My inspiration for this painting is Millaa Millaa Falls where I love to swim. The water is very cold in winter because of the altitude of the Atherton Tablelands and my wife couldn’t believe I persuaded her to swim in it one winter. I love the cold water myself. Standing under the waterfall is like having a massage as it pounds down on my head, shoulders and back. I love the freshness and I often extend my hands to enjoy the feel of the falling water. I love the rainforest canopy around the waterfall. It has a natural beauty with the ferns, palms and vines. I saw the shapes of boomerangs and a gunyah in the surrounding foliage so I etched it in.
Millaa Millaa is an Aboriginal phrase meaning plenty of water or waterfall. The Millaa Millaa Falls are known as a plunge waterfall because its fast moving water falls vertically, losing complete contact with the bedrock surface. The horizontal thrust of the water before it falls causes it to loose contact. The falls are over 18m high with a natural pool suitable for swimming at its base.
