Mt Solitary from Leura by Michael John

This image depicts the red sandstone cliffs of Mt Solitary in the distance, as viewed from a lookout near Leura.

The cloud cover created some interesting shadows on the eucalypt forest beneath.

Mt Solitary is an isolated sandstone plateau that stands alone in the wild Jamison Valley below Katoomba.

Situated in the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

Captured at Leura near Katoomba, NSW, Australia.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
