Fruitbat Falls is in the far north of Cape York in tropical Queensland. No crocodiles here which makes it even better for a dip! There are 3 people on the upper part & a red bucket.

You are killing me with these great views Chris ...

nice weekend,

Beautiful colors, amazing difference between the color of the upper level and the lower, is one sand and one stone? Very crisp image and great compo. TFS,

Hi Chris,

WOW!! This is paradise!!!!
Definately a unique and safe place for a dip! The water seems so inviting with those crystal clear colours! Nice DOF and POV and great sun light.
Well done and TFS!!!!

Oh my, this is stunning scenery you have captured so well here Chris. The bucket and people are an excellent size reference.

Kindest regards

Wonderful picture,Chris! Excellent composition! Nice and sharp image! Tfs! Michel

A very inviting location Chris, nicely captured as usual. The blue / green of the water in the foreground is particularly impressive.

Beautiful scenery, Chris. Thanks to the persons in the shot we have an idea about the height of the falls... but it would be interesting to take the shot without people as well, for the opposite reason. Nice Pov with the falls in a near-symmetrical position (upside-down "U").

Hi Chris,
This is very nice. The water looks very inviting. A mini niagara falls by the looks of it.

i like how the colors are divided into equal parts in the frame here Chris :)
well balanced image
thanks for sharing :)

Gorgeous! It makes me want to go swimming, even though it is below freezing here. I think I will have not trouble resisting the urge. LOL!

Hi Chris,
very nice, you sure get one dreaming about vacation. Beautiful colors and gvery nice scenery. Great composition.

Nice place Chris!

I intended to add a smaller version of this in my backyard .... Problem , the season is a bit small here for the investment!
Superb colors and contrasts.
Well done!

Hi Chris,
Very beautiful scene and nice sunshine. The water is so clear. I wish I could go to Queesland one day.

ooohh, so beautiful, Chris, perfect comp, what a wonderful paradise, well photographed too, thanx, M, (*_*)

Great shot, Chris, love the human element in it as here it gives a good indication of the size. Great image from you as always.

animal that would impede this dive, I will go.
Congratulations for the picture, beautiful visual refreshing.

Hurrah! No crocs! What a super place to swim then Chris...
The colours and details have all come out well. It is a beautiful view, and the rapids look like they'd be fun to go down them. TFS

Hi Chris
Wonderful nature photo
Like the apearence of human in here. We can see the sise of the falls.

I want to swim there! Nice and sharp picture, Chris. Nice colours, pov and depth. Well captured.

Best regards,


The red bucket!!! Yes - key inclusion ... but why? Why a red bucket is there at all? Very odd.
No crocs? What a shame. Not really. This does look like a really cool place for a cool dip and the falls are not overwhelming and dangerous. Even I would shoot over them in a barrel. Might even do that but in a red bucket. THAT'S what it's there for!
Most pleasing image, CJ.

Hi Chris.

Found this little gem and stayed a while...infact a bit longer. The hallmark of a paradise island somewhere. Great shot. Have a safe weekend.


We say hhooo large fall! But as i can rescale with the person over... Not that large as i imagined from the thumbnail :)
Funny catch from that angle!
Beautifull how sky and water match!
