The Blue Mountains National Park in Australia.
Somewhere near the start of the Federal Pass walking track near Leura in an area known as The Ampitheatre is this beautiful scene of a rock hugging tree.
The sunlight provided a beautiful backlight to illuminate the ferns here. According to a website I checked out, this is a coachwood tree.
Just up from here we frustratedly tried to catch a shot of the cute little marsupial mice searching for food on the forest slopes. They were scurrying around so quickly that all I got was a couple of blurry shots.
For those outside Australia these mice are similar to your common mice but are much smaller, have a shorter tail & are much cuter. They stand on their hind legs like kangaroos.
The sun disappeared later & the predicted “possible thunderstorm” arrived to dump loads of wet kisses on us. We got back to the car totally drenched.
