A short Blue Mountains trip

country roadMy wife and were in the Blue Mountains, briefly. This is just west of Sydney, two hours by train from Central Station. I didn’t get much opportunity for photography but I did come back with some photos.

For the most part, whilst we were there it was cloudy. And since we were higher up, we were in those clouds. Out in the bush, it is like being in another world.misty roadlichen

So we needed umbrellas on our bush walk. Still, we weren’t the only ones.

I don’t know what makes the marks on the tree below. It looks to me like a child pretending to write.

It’s been a cool summer in Sydney and recently in New South Wales and Victoria we had a lot of flooding. The river in the picture below was once a creek.


To get more of an idea, see the short video:

Well, I have quite a backlog of photos to be working on, having been a little busy with the camera. As I’m still in Perth until tomorrow, I won’t be able to get started until next week.

I have photos from Callala Beach and adjacent areas on the south coast of New South Wales, a few from around Leura in the Blue Mountains (some nice cloudy shots) and of course I will be bringing back photos from Perth (Western Australia), including a session at the Old Coogee Power Station (not to be confused with Coogee in NSW) with my cousin Russell as a tour guide. I had a great time there.

And I’ve still got the Currawongs video to finish. It takes quite a while to load it into Movie Maker so I’ll need a good amount of spare time to do that.

Anyway, that’s the update.
