The warm glow of the afternoon sun brings out the vibrant reds and oranges in the sandstone on the escarpment of Mt Victoria, looking down into the Hartley valley. Love this place.
How about the nerve of the sun shamelessly marketing the adidas triple stripe. Or do I have it the wrong way around?

Weighing in on the crazy mammatus clouds in the mountains yesterday
Before everyones feeds get filled with christmas material, heres my favourite shot from rocky creek canyon. Simon is hanging out in the portal to space.
Beam me up
On tuesday I went for an adventure into the depths of rocky creek canyon. Its one of the most popular canyons in the mountains, but being a weekday my mate Simon and I had the place to ourselves. I am looking forward to showing you over the next few days the experience we had. There will be beams!!!!!

Anectdotally, I haven't seen or heard of a koala being around the springwood area in the blue mountains in the 30 years Iv been here. Now there have been multiple sightings in the past couple of weeks. To be confirmed if its the same one. This fella was warming his back in a water gum in a residential backyard next to a mates place. I hope its a positive sign that their numbers are increasing, but wont be sure till some experts in this area provide some advice. Nationwide they are definately a species on the decline.

Stopping off for a short stay on Bongon Beach before heading off to 'bluer' pastures
Happy friday everyone. Last week while driving home the clouds were looking gorgeous, so I ducked into this spot shown to me by @edwinemmerick_photography (thanks mate). Love the different colours of the lichen growing on the sandstone.
Its great to see waratahs flowering on the side of tracks and not being collected. Rangers sometimes have to spray the stalks blue to alert any potential buyers they have been picked illegally.
Anyone that stands on the end of that rock for a photo is contributing to the increasing hoardes of people that have no outdoor experience doing the same, searching for gratification on insta. I love a person in a landscape for perspective but sometimes you have to think of the bigger picture (punny!) In saying all of that, its a gorgeous spot with egg and bacon flowers (dilwynia) and pink boronias on either side of the jagged pathway down the hill.
Had a sneaky little inspection of the wildflowers in blue mountains national park a couple of days ago. Its amazing at the moment. Get outside my friends!

Loving the rainfall recharging the ecosystems in the blue mountains. This is empress falls at the bottom of the valley of the waters. The top waterfall in the shot is the final abseil of the empress canyon, one of the most popular canyons of the blue mountains. Canyoners drop over the edge and into a plunge pool halfway down the falls. The greater blue mountains has the most extensive sandstone canyon system in eastern australia, I cant wait to get back out there.
