I love Sylvia ! by Michael Matthews

Yet another view of my favourite Sylvia Falls which is near the Valley of the Waters at Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains National Park in Australia.
This is on one of my favourite walks & the track goes around the cliff to Wentworth Falls before you climb a steep cliff to the top of the falls.

My other good shots of Sylvia are portrait format.
I thought I’d try landscape format to show off the greenery surrounding the falls.

Photographed with a Canon 400D, ISO 200, 2.5 seconds, F18.

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.

    Beautiful image Michael. I think I prefer this to the portrait format.

  • Thanks a lot Kevin & thanks for the fave. That lighter version has been a favourite for years but I think I prefer the rich colours of this latest version.

    works well michael …the 400d is a great bit of machinery i reckon but sadly the life of mine has come to an end and have upgraded to a 60 d

  • Thanks a lot Philip. I have thought about upgrading too but still weighing up the benefits versus the costs.

    Beautiful Michael. I really live the landscape view, nice work. Must go up there some time & check out some of these great spots.

  • Thanks Ian & thanks for the fave. I’ve done that walk so many times. There is so much to see. On the last walk I headed down towards Vera Falls & discovered Flat Rock Falls & Brittania Falls. The walk up the cliff at Wentworth Falls has some scary spots.
