Fan Palms, Licuala ramsayi, in the Australian Daintree rainforest

These pictures evoke for me the fantastic feeling of being in the tropical rainforest, with it’s cathedral-like atmosphere,  towering columns of trees, the canopy of Fan Palm leaves way-up overhead, and late afternoon sun filtering through. The only thing missing is the sense of how hot and humid it was with the rainy season about to start. These photographs were taken from the relative safety of the Dubuji boardwalk near Cape Tribulation in Queensland, Australia.

  1. Thanks, Wingclipped. It was a great ancient place and truly wild. The Daintree Wet Tropics World Heritage area is the oldest continually surviving tropical rainforest region on earth and dates back more than 100 million years.
