This image shows a crystal clear mountain river with large red stones scattered along the bottom.

On the far bank grow feathery ferns, the leaves of which bend over towards the water below.

This image was captured at Greaves Creek on the Grand Canyon bushwalk in the heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park near Blackheath, NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D, as is.

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.
