Autumn in the Blue Mountains

Autumn at Wenty lake- April 2013

I took a trip to the beautiful Wentworth Falls lake in the Blue Mountains to see some Autumn colour………and it didn’t dissapoint. I have always enjoyed the distinctive 4 seasons that we encounter as mountains residents. Autumn in the mountains has always been one of my favourite times of year as the trees just explode with colour and vibrancy.  This shot is also another example of the great colour and light that was on display on the day.

Wentworth Falls lake located in the wentworth falls township is also home to many beautiful waterfalls and I would thoroughly recommend an exploration of this area as it has so much to offer as a destination for those inclined to explore the World Heritage listed blue mountains. It had been too long since I had visited this area and have vowed to get back here more often to explore some more photo opportunities. This photo and more are available for purchasing here.

Thanks for tuning into the blog, have a super week everyone.

Cheers ben

Phanthom Falls in the Blue Mountains

Into the Light- Narrowneck Plateau- Katoomba, NSW, Australiau

On a recent trip out to Narrowneck plateau as I was taking photos looking out to the Jamison Valley, I got to witness the amazing Phantom Falls in action. Though it didn’t create the full waterfall looking apparition, it was still incredible. I really look forward to seeing more of this phenomenon for sure. This link explains how the right conditions are needed for the phantom falls to appear.

This photo which I have entitled Into the Light is the latest edition of print for sale.

Narrowneck Plateau has always been one of my favourite places to explore. I grew up in the Blue Mountains and my oldest brother  and I cut our teeth learning to rock climb in this area. It has been great to go back and explore and reminisce about our earlier adventures in this area. Coming back with a camera has been a really great experience and I look forward to spending more days wandering the area hoping to catch another glimpse of the Phantom!

See you out there….
