Artist's Description

From the carpark at the end of Ridgewell Rd, Blackheath, this view is accessible after a one hour walk along the Baltzer Lookout track.

This photo was featured in the UK Sun newspaper on Oct 24, 2011.


This is in the Blue Mountains National Park in New South Wales, Australia.

It was an adventure for me just getting to the point where I took this photo .. slid part of the way down a gravelly slope on my butt to avoid falling. It would have been much easier without all the camera gear. I got a stress headache watching them stroll to the edge & casually look down. It is such an incredible piece of nature though & was well worth the effort to capture it.
