Photographed with a Canon 400D.

Another beautiful image of the rocks & ferns on the Grand Canyon walking track at Blackheath in the Blue Mountains National Park, Australia.

I think I like this one as much as the Canyon steps image. It has the added highlight of the richly coloured rocks & none of the glare of the previous similar shot.

    This favourite walk of yours is becoming a “must see” for me. Lovely capture.

  • Thanks very much Trish. My three favourite walks are within 10kms of each other in the Blue Mountains at the moment .. until I find more favourites. I’d move up there if it wasn’t so cold in the winter.

  • Thank you Sharon. I like this one so much I got an 8 × 12 print of it today. I’m loving the results I’m getting since I started shooting in RAW a few weeks ago. Doing ok in a topsy-turvy year. Next year will be better. Good to hear from you Sharon. How is married life in beautiful Hawaii ?
