Cumulus Clouds over the Blue Mountains by 


While on a bushwalk in the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park, I noticed these large cumulus clouds rising up over the cliffs. After a few hours the storm rolled in and it started pouring with rain. And yes, I got wet.

Cumulus clouds are a type of cloud with noticeable vertical development and clearly defined edges. They are often described as “puffy” or “cotton-like” in appearance.

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.
