These are a few from my last trip to the Blue Mountains.

This last one is the waterfall at the end of Empress Canyon.

All were taken with 5D and 17-40L.

Take away about 95% of the trees and this would look like the Grand canyon! Looks like a fantastic place to explore!

Exactly the first thought that came to my mind as well...

It's almost as if Scott's Turf Builder got the naming rights to the GC! :lol:

@ the OP: Excellent Series. Is this a place that (by Aussie standards) is easy to get to or difficult?

Excelent capture on all I like the last one as the fall is very large notice some climber on the near top which indicate the scale of the fall height.

Cheers

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

@FlyingPhotog: the first two photos were taken a public lookout. The blue mountains is filled with canyons, trails, and rock climbs. I actually went Canyoning and the waterfall in the last photo was what I abseiled down. (5D in a dry bag ofcourse)

Looks like an amazing place! I like your natural processing with good contrast, especially for the waterfall picture.

Thanks mate, I'm happy to hear that. I've been trying to keep it as natural as possible now that I've had my fair go at tonemapping and whatnot.

you might be suprised that this is only just beyond the outskirts of Greater Sydney! An easy daytrip.

Yep I walked about 20 metres to get the first two shots, and the last one was around an hour hike in, 40 mins canyon and around an hour out as well.
