Lakes are perfect subject for landscape photography. No matter what – clear skies or storm, drought or drenching rain, interesting foreground or nothing at all – you can always find your perfect shot. And even if you can’t, you can always leave your camera alone and simply relax and enjoy the view.
I love shooting seascapes and I honestly doubt that I’ll ever get tired of it. I’ve seen so many capes, heads, beaches, bays and coves that I can’t remember or count them all. Despite that, they can still surprise me and offer something different, something unique.
I knew that Cape Woolamai is special – it was on my list for quite a while and I saw many great photographs taken there, but even with these high expectations I had that “Wow!” moment once I reached the cliff’s edge.
One of the six glacial lakes in Australia, Lake Cootapatamba certainly can’t take any prises for it size; however, it is officially holding a crown of the highest lake in Australia – 2042 meters above the sea level.
Oaklands Falls is one of those rare locations where you can still enjoy Blue Mountains and surrounding rainforest without being disturbed by tourists passing every now and then, and, in fact, it is very likely that you won’t meet there anyone at all.
Mungo National Park is a special place for me, and not just because it is overwhelmingly beautiful, but also due to the fact that it was the first NSW Outback place I’ve travelled to – this was the beginning, beginning of my long never ending plan to see every corner of Australia.
White Cliffs features one of the most unexpected landscapes in the middle of arid and deserted lands of the New South Wales Outback – thousands of opal mine shafts create a lunar landscape that stretches far beyond the horizon.
Australia is a flat continent – all mountains here are very old, worn out by millions of years of erosion and generally not famous for its height. However, this unfortunate fact is easily compensated by numerous geological gems scattered across this desert country. One of those unusual places is The Breadknife. Read more…
By looking at the number of lighthouses along the NSW coast, I believe there should be at least several hundreds of lighthouses in Australia. Unfortunately, most of them represent a plain white tower and only a few lighthouses feature some uniqueness in shape or colour. Hornby Lighthouse is one of those that stand out from the mass.
Hornby Lighthouse is 9 meter high and located on the top of the Sydney’s South Head, at the edge of the cliff, 27 meters above the sea level. It is also a 3rd oldest lighthouse in New South Wales and 7th in Australia.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, by now, you should already know that there is no shortage of waterfalls in Blue Mountains, but what about Sydney itself? Well, there are some …
This small waterfall is called Upper Gledhill Falls and located in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park in Sydney’s North.
It may not be obvious at first glance, but Blue Mountains is full of waterfalls – I think I will be able to show you at least 40 of them and I’m sure there are more. Most of them are relatively small, some require rainy days to demonstrate its’ beauty, but if you are a true waterfall fan, size shouldn’t matter, right? Read more…
