We made the mistake of a last minute visit to Moogerah Dam outside of Boonah over the Easter long week-end. Long week-ends = crowds and booked out camp grounds so we sought another alternative. You won’t find it on Google Earth/Maps yet but the newly constructed Wyaralong Dam isn’t a bad option if you’d like to escape the crowds and sounds of powered boats. Run by Seqwater it’s a free camp ground that appears popular with Mountain Bikers and Horse Riders.
From the side of the Highway between Beaudesert and Boonah you’ll find spots where you can stop that offer a scenic view. Must admit, I was a little concerned about being hit by a rock flicked up by the passing Trucks.
Moogerah at Sunset. I do feel this place would allow better Photographic options at Sunrise – can’t complain really.
Bit of rain at Sunset off in the distance. Kind of looked like the potential for a Storm to build but……
It did through up some soft pastel colours to the sky. It’s one place that I think I’ll be returning to again to shoot after this first recon mission.
We split a Radiator hose on the way home and while standing on the side of the Highway thinking of ways to fix, I managed to catch a bit of Lightning from off in the distance. I’ll be back this way come Storm Season and expand my chasing ground from the Gold Coast. Bigger skies, bigger land. So much to Photograph really.
