While bushwalking in a Blue Mountains rainforest, I noticed this cobweb suspended between two trees.

The sunlight was shining through the web from behind, creating an interesting rainbow effect on the delicate web. It almost looked like a CD suspended in the trees.

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.

    I like the cob webs , they just seam to shine, and then there is the rainbow colors, when I don’t like them is when I walk into one.

  • Me too! Thanks for that comment Barbara.
