After coming back from Norway, home of freaking awesome mountains, I did not think I would ever be able to look at the Blue Mountains the same way again, however whilst the blue mountains pale in terms of size when compared to say Dalsnibba (the hill that looks over Geiranger) there is a uniqueness to the Blue mountains which gives them a pretty big draw card. The sheer sandstone cliffs, the gums and the ancient history of the people that walked here before, all something which is not replicated anywhere else in teh world – after visiting just about anywhere in the mountains it leaves me thinking I am very lucky to live so close and be able to enjoy such neat scenery and it should not be under appreciated 🙂

This is a spot looking over the Jamison Valley from Narrowneck, I could basically walk 50 metres and view the Megalong Valley side (https://plus.google.com/+GerardBlacklock/posts/gDPVmCCg5dX) or this side.

Some pretty cool light on this evening too, really lit up the clouds which were honking across the valley..

  1. As beautiful as the mountain is, the valley below seems a paradise of green, with vistas going on to forever. Stunning sky as well. There is nowhere with the antiquity of culture as Australia so thinking about people seeing this beauty seven thousand years ago is mind bending. Fantastic shot of a place I can only dream of.
