It's the last month of autumn in Melbourne's water catchment, the summer dust no longer sucks the colour out of the vegetation and the reflections. The dampness in the air filters the light and the creeks and rivers start to flow again.
The moss comes back to life and the ferns stand up to be seen.
It was a drizzly day but I was lucky to be here when the sun made a good but very brief attempt through a sole gap in the cloud cover.
I used a little digital magic to enhance this photo but it still doesn't capture the mystical feeling of the view at the point where it fades away into the distance.
