Hanging Rock vista .. the long view by 

This is Hanging Rock near Blackheath in the Blue Mountains National Park in New South Wales, Australia.
From the carpark on Ridgewell Rd you follow the track to Baltzers Lookout which is about an hours walk. In spring there are lots of wildflowers to check out.

Camera: Canon 400D.
Location: Blackheath, NSW, Australia.
HDR Processing: Photomatix.

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.

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.
