We headed off early from Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, fumbling our way through the heavy fog that often blankets this area and onto Lithgow at the base of the pass. The fog lifted a little replaced by fine misty rain … still we pushed on past the power stations and onto the Mudgee Road. Here we passed through the small hamlet of Cullen Bullen and at Capertee we turned right, heading for Glen Davis. The sealed road wound through a forest of gums and pines before descending steadily to the Capertee Valley floor. Our excitement began to grow as we glimpsed shear sandstone cliffs and monoliths reaching for the sky. Further on the road turned to gravel and the weather cleared to glimpses of sunshine amongst wisps of fog. We stopped many times to capture the beauty we were witnessing, to preserve it for our record and to share with others less fortunate in being able to witness this beauty first hand.

I love the challenge of capturing what I see, admire and love. To share it with you is an added bonus. Photography to me is recording history. Please explore my galleries and enjoy♥

    Damn thats stunning. I’m making a list, Bev, of all these places you find, and one day, before I drop off me perch, I’m off to see them all.

  • Thanks Sue … there was another one like this just sticking straight out of the ground but it was covered in cloud … by the time we turned to come back it was completely covered … I’ve been making the most of my time off work … one week to go♥

    Nice one Bev.

    Stunning scene and stunning photo Bev! An artist’s dream! Very similar to our mountains here in South Africa.

  • Thank you Maree. I often compare out scenery to that of South Africa … I guess the two continents did separate many moons ago so I guess there should be some similarity. This is a really beautiful valley♥
