Artist's Description

A misty mountain hop, skip & jump through Kangaroo Valley a few years ago revealed this gem of a waterfall flowing down the mountain.

Being my first trip to the Kangaroo Valley, I didn’t realize at the time that this wasn’t a permanent feature, but a flow created by a heavy downpour.
Subsequent trips were missing this great sight.
Fitzroy Falls was impossible to see because of the rain & blowing mist, so I had to go back another day for that beautiful view.

I needed the telephoto lens to capture this, which explains the slight fuzziness.
I like the misty cloud .. bottom right.

Photographed with a Canon 400D at Kangaroo Valley in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia.

Dedicated to Misty Mountain Hop by Led Zeppelin.

Misty Mountain Hop Lyrics

Walkin’ in the park just the other day, baby,
What do you, what do you think I saw?
Crowds of people sittin’ on the grass with flowers in their hair said,
“Hey, Boy, do you wanna score?”
And you know how it is.
I really don’t know what time it was
so I asked them if I could stay a while.

I didn’t notice but it had got very dark and I was really
Really out of my mind.
Just then a policeman stepped up to me and asked us, said, “Please,hey,
would we care to all get in line, Get in line.”
Well, you know, they asked us to stay for tea and have some fun;
he said that his friends would all drop by, ooh.

Why don’t you take a good look at yourself and describe what you see,
and baby, baby, baby, do you like it?
There you sit, sitting spare like a book on a shelf rustin’,
ah, not trying to fight it.
You really don’t care if they’re comin’;
I know that it’s all a state of mind.
