I was up in the Blue Mountains mid week on my day off work. These pictures were taken from the Scenic World complex at Katoomba, looking over the Jamison Valley, the "3 sisters" rock formation and in the rainforest in the valley. The weather was fair when I was there with cloud shadows over the valley, but 2 days later on Friday it was snowing there! There were many American and Japanese tourists there too which was an interesting combination.

Very nice pictures, Stephen. Living close to the mountains and the city, I'm sure you have lots of opportunity to photograph some amazing scenery.

Thanks, but I'm not really. Just an amateur. :)

Yeah, the city is closer than the mountains. The city is about 40mins away on the express bus. Katoomba is about 2hrs away on the train. There is quite the contrast though. It was snowing at Katoomba today! But there are many photo opportunities around here. :)
