Being Observant

to observe – to be or become aware of, especially through careful and directed attention

When walking in the bush, it’s easy to miss the little things. If the track is stony or lined with gnarled tree roots I tend to watch where I’m putting my feet instead of looking at what I’m passing. So I make a conscious effort to slow down, to be more observant and to notice what is above, below and beside me.

On the 2 km Queen Mary Falls circuit, the dry eucalypt forest on top of the ridge makes way for rainforest nourished by the mist from the falls at the base of Cambanoora Gorge. I didn’t hurry down the steep, uneven track and paused often to capture the small details in the beauty of the bush.

Nature rewarded my patience!
