Mountain Serenity

8 Dec 2013: I just sat on an escarpment with massive 180 degree views and experienced a gorgeous beginning. I had the entire Blue Mountains all to myself. Sunrise serenity is the only way to describe my sunrise experience this morning. I just want to see as many sunrises as possible…for me it’s as simple as that.

5.22am: I have the entire Blue mountains all to myself.

Love the soft tones and the colours that are cast along the horizon.

I hope that you enjoyed a serene sunrise in the mountains.

  1. It was an out-loud “oooh” for me again today. Thanks so much for two sets of fabulous views Paul. I think the movement of the kayak taught you to find the perfect shot and now that skill travels with you wherever you go. I feel as though I can live on both sides of Australia at the same time by seeing where you’ve been. Have a great day, Jen

    • Hi Jen,
      Thank you for you kind words. I really enjoyed photographing from a totally different perspective. I was really curious to see what sort of photo story I would create. I thoroughly enjoyed my mountain experience, what such stunning scenery. We have such a vast country that has so much on offer to experience. It has been so long since I have caught a sunrise and sunset in the Blue Mountains and I was so lucky to be blessed with perfect conditions. I felt like I had the entire Blue Mountains all to myself while sitting quietly on my own escarpment gazing at a stunning natural lightshow. We definitely live in a wonderful part of the world.
      All the best
      Paul
