Unusual seats made from local timber sit at various spots around the old NSW gold mining and National Park town of Hill End. This one sits on the top of a small hill overlooking a massive drop to a valley below. The weather wasn’t perfect but the background when taken from a low position was interesting clouds.

My photographic interests cover amongst other things landscape (rural and urban), travel and cultural. I’ve been taking photos for more years than I would like to admit.
