Near Furber Steps, Katoomba Falls, Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.

This is pretty much where I was.

A blue moon in the Blue Mountains. Pretty dark apart from the beautiful full moon: I don't think I'd have ventured down this steep track at night without this celestial illumination. Hand-held if I remember rightly, but most of the blurred movement is branches swinging in the breeze rather than me swinging the camera about! A bit grainy, but it was a cheap and quite early digital camera...

Hi Will
nice to see you posting a new photo, even if this is an old photo. must have been a very early stage MegaPixel camera back in 2003 :) we can laugh at them now, but when they came out it was amazing to be able to see your photos immediately. No more film :) interesting effect with the blue light, I like it, its a messy setup with all the branches and what not, but its suppose to be like that out in the wild. cheers

Hello Will, tones of indigo towards black?
I really like the shot.
The slight blurring of some of the branches adds to the overall effect.
Regards Jean.

Hello Will,

Its rather looks like a graphic work and not photograph, but its beyond question that it is spectacular.

Best Wishes,
Gy.

Hi Will
A good atmospheric one from your vault. Eucalypts lend themselves to good photos even if the breeze bloes tem about.
Cheers
Ian

Hell Will,

An excellent nature picture, with the blue moon between the branches.
Light and colours are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,
John.
