Hanging Rock is an outstanding natural rock feature near Baltzer Lookout, Blackheath.

A huge overhanging block of sandstone, over 100m high, has become detached from the main cliff and juts out over the Grose Valley in the World Heritage Listed, Blue Mountains National Park.

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.

    Gosh, I love that view…

    Just gonna sit here with my chin on my hands and enjoy it for awhile… which I could, for a very long time…

    Nothing in this world brings me to peace and an awareness of life, love and the Big Fella faster than a view such as this can. Not sure why – it just does, and I don’t question it anymore…

    Glorious capture, Michael… Breathtakingly beautiful…


  • I know what you mean, and I am pleased that it has this reaction in you. Thanks Donna.
