Artist's Description

BIG IMAGE BEST VIEWED LARGER

  • I am always in awe of this view*

Govetts Leap lookout has one of my favourite views in the mountains, I could sit for hours just watching the liht and shadow pass through the valley and gorge. It’s like looking into the Grand Canyon and its full of trees !.

The Blue Mountains are a must when visiting Sydney, although it can be visited on day tours from Sydney, to really take in the experience go up there and stay a few days, there is lots to see and experience .
