Natures Blanket - Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Sydney - The HDR Experience by 


The Blue Mountains is Sydney’s greatest recreation area for people who prefer the bush to the sea. They are part of the Great Dividing Range, which stretches from Gippsland region of Victoria in the south to the tropical rainforests of north Queensland.

The range rivals the Rockies in length, but nowhere near in height. Australia’s highest mountain is Mount Kosciusko about 500 kilometres south of Sydney. At 2229 metres it is a mere baby by North American and European standards.

Yet the Blue Mountains, peaking at about 1000 metres, proved a heartbreaking challenge until they were conquered by a trio of explorers – Gregory Blaxland, William Lawson and Charles Wentworth in 1813. They and four men hacked through dense bush for 18 days to find a route. Sections of the Great Western Highway from Sydney still follow parts of their trail.

Here early morning dawn glows as it rises and the valley is blanketted in natures doona way below.

Equipment: Nikon D300, Sigma 10-20mm lens, Manfrotto Tripod

Technique: HDR 5 Bracketted Exposures , Processed in Photomatix
