Photographer's Note

Many of the trees in the rainforest of Mossman Gorge have butress roots. These serve to hold the tree up and also gathering nutrients. In the poor soil, nutrients are found near the surface, so the roots grow wide rather than deep.

The shape of and light on these roots made them especially interesting.
