Rock & shadow

I took these on the way home from a skiing trip in Thredbo, NSW with all of my friends. I was driving by myself, so it gave me a little more time to stop and take photos where I wanted to without feeling pressured by time.

It was an overcast day, but the sun kept bursting through and lighting areas of the fields like spotlights, whilst the clouds kept other areas in the shadows. I thought that the same thing was happening on the ground. The grassy areas being in the light and the rocky outcrops being the shadows.

Blue mountain blooming


My friends and I went hiking at Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains over the weekend. We go to the same place every spring. It's amazing up there, and the walk is great. It takes only a day, all of the wildflowers are blooming, and depending on how much rain there has been there are several waterfalls around.

On the way back we pass by some small properties owned by Blue Mountains locals. We stopped and talked to an older man in his early 70's named Les who was doing some gardening. He offered us tea. He said that he was new to the area, as he had only been there with his wife for 15 years.
