Rainforest 1 – 3:  Looking back at some of the wondrous Nature seen on a trip of my lifetime to the wet tropical rainforest in Queensland, Australia, in 2011.

Fan Palms at Dubuji

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.
