A trip to the Blue Mountains would never be complete without the mist and the fog. Our recent trip was not without these problems … it just meant that whenever you saw a lift in the clouds or a hint of sun, you rushed to the closest lookout to catch the view. This image was taken on the last day when we awoke to find the sun trying to peak through the high cloud, a sign that Govett’s Leap might provide us with a photo opportunity. Even though brief, the sun provided the light needed to light up the early morning sky and the valley beneath, wrapping its warm glow around the mist gathering in the valley and gently touching the cliff faces in an attempt to reveal the beauty hidden there under the veil of night. This image was taken from the Govett’s Leap Lookout at Blackheath on the Blue Mountains in NSW Australia looking into and across the Grose Valley. On the left you can see the magestic Pulpit Rock with Mt Banks in the background. The scenery in this area never fails to amaze anyone who takes the time to look behind the busy tourist spots. Each lookout provides beauty beyond belief, the walking trails are many and offer the fit and hardy a glimpse further into what lies below in the valleys and waterfalls beneath. You will come away refreshed and delighted at what you have experienced in this Blue Mountain wonderland.
