Let's just watch ... by Michael Matthews

As abseilers scale down Empress Falls, these sensible bushwalkers are happy to just watch while I was happy to catch the action through the lens.

This is Empress Falls near Valley of the Waters, Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains National Park in NSW, Australia.

Photographed with a Canon 400D.

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.
