The second in the series of that beautiful waterfall near Bridal Veil Falls at Leura.

I gave it a different name so that people wouldn’t confuse it with the original.

Possibly Weeping Rock or Lurinda or Lurline Falls. The jury is still out on that one.

I think this is my favourite of all the shots I took of these falls.

I thought the froth in the water added a nice touch to this scene.

This is in the Blue Mountains National Park in Australia.

Photographed with a Canon 400D, ISO400, F13, Exposure .8 seconds.

The view on the way back up the mountain

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    these cascades are so beautiful Michael, perfectly lovely :) what a beautiful place!

  • Thanks Karin. This waterfall is a little bit off the track so it is quiet & tranquil. A great place to spend a few hours admiring nature. Thanks for the fave as well.
