Blue Mountains

I have a student from Australia in my class this week, so thought I would share a few pictures from my trip to Australia last February.

While in Australia last year I visited the Blue Mountains. See my posts: Blue Mountains Preview, Katoomba Falls and Blue Mountains National Park

The Blue Mountains were really beautiful, especially the cliffs along the valley near Katoomba. I really like the wisps of fog along the cliff face.

The fog was nice as it made for some scenic views. However, my camera lens also fogged up quite a bit and looking back through my pictures I found many that were not very well focused.

Three Sisters, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia, FogOne of the attractions at Katoomba is the Three Sisters. Here they are very difficult to see because of the fog, but later I got some really nice pictures when I was closer. You can see a couple of the pictures in my other Blue Mountains posts.

I may have to go to the Blue Mountains again during my next trip to Australia.
