Artist's Description

I rarely have people in my nature shots but this image appealed to me for various reasons.

Dominating the background here is Crater Bluff in the Warrumbungle National Park.

I did this walk by myself but met a few couples at the highlight of the walk at Grand High Tops.

The guy in the photo did the walk with his girlfriend & I remember him telling me about various people who had scaled the Breadknife & Belougery Spire with obvious admiration.

The thought of people scaling these almost vertical rock structures made me a bit nauseous.

I liked the contrast here of the rugged Aussie staring up at the rugged Aussie rock structure.

Crater Bluff is in the foreground with Tonduron Spire in the background.
Both structures are volcanic plugs formed after millions of years of erosion exposes the solidified vents of old volcanos.

As we took these photos, the dark clouds of an approaching lightning storm are obvious.
We decided that being on a high point with lightning wasn’t the best idea, so didn’t stay long.

This is the Warrumbungle National Park in New South Wales, Australia.
