Narrowneck

Another great naming effort by those before us 🙂 nothing like good literal name for a location, basically Narrowneck is a ridge of sandstone that divides Jamison Valley and Megalong Valley, its pretty cool can you can go all the way out along it (mostly by car too) and see really neat views onto the big valley and the sandstone cliffs on the edge of Katoomba.

This image is taken from one of the spots near a walk which you can take down into the Jamison Valley (thats for another day), whilst some of the narrowneck is quite narrow (see what i did there 🙂 ), there is still quite a bit of vegetation which means alot of scouting around to get a clear view, in this case I stood on the side of the road atop the armco guard rail, gave me that extra 3 feet I needed 🙂

The sun was just about to disappear under the clouds out on the horizon in the Megalong valley and consequently there was some nice light for several minutes which conveniently lit up the hillside.

  1. Beautiful pano +Gerard Blacklock and this low-sun-long-shadows view also caught my attention during my very short stay here in March this year.
    Looks very similar to what I saw from Hargraves Lookout, and is a reminder I should take a new look at the shots I took 🙂

  2. Thanks +Morten Ross, I have never stopped at Hargraves Lookout, but will one day 🙂 btw you have some great imagery on your stream and website. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, be sure to tag me when you post one from the Hargraves Lookout 🙂
