Hanging Rock vista .. the long view by 

Photographed with a Canon 400D.

This image of Hanging Rock at Blackheath appeared in the UK Daily Mail on October 24, 2011 thanks to representation from Chris Balcombe of the Solent News Agency.

I sent about 7 images to him & while the UK Sun was the money spinner, the Daily Mail (which is an online paper) chose this one as well as the main photo to show the height of the rock.

This is Hanging Rock near Blackheath in the Blue Mountains National Park in New South Wales, 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.
