Photographed Oct 15, 2011 with a Canon 400D, ISO 100, F18, 1 second. Lightened in RAW Processing.

On the Wentworth Pass track starting at the Valley of the Waters, heading past the world famous Sylvia Falls is this beautiful sight. It needed a tight angle because of the small trees obstructing the view. Recent rain made this waterfall more photogenic & the track muddy & slippery.

This track leads to Vera Falls & then on to Wentworth Falls but it started to rain making it slippery & dangerous down there.
The track is advertised as being for the more experienced hiker.

I love the way the new growth on the ferns brings a spray of autumnal colours to the scene (in spring) .. bottom right.

This is near the town of Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains National Park in Australia.

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.

    Glad to see you lived to tell the tale, MM!!!

    Wonderful images… Beautiful place! x

  • Thank you sunshine. I love the colours when it is overcast & drizzly but it does make it a bit dangerous. Will have to go back when my shoulder is mended so that I have two hands to hold on with rather than one.
    Thanks for the fave.
