I've been really lazy of late and now Summer is officially over here in Oz I decided to get off my but a get out for a bushwalk. No excuses when you live in the shadows of a World Heritage Listed National Park. During the last few weeks we have had a bit of rain so I decided the Valley of the Waters would be at it's best. Ended up doing a 10km (6 mile) loop along the magnificent National Pass trail.

The trail winds its way through the valley until reaching Wentworth Falls. These falls are over 180 metres (600 feet) in height and drops in two levels. This photo is from the middle shelf.

The climb out of the valley is up the Grand Stair Case and along a track cut into the cliff face....
Just got back from a week long visit to Burma and the north west state of Rhakine where Mrauk U is located.
All shots with the A7ii and native lenses.
Some of my favorite pics.

New Years Day, I woke up to a bit of a surprise. A blanket of snow covered everything... unusual for the desert. I bolted out the door and headed to my favorite local scenic mountains that I am always trying to take pictures of anyway...I knew the snow was going to melt pretty quickly at the lower elevations.
In my eagerness to get some pictures, I forgot to reset the camera to RAW, so these are JPEGS. I missed in PP the control and latitude that I am used to with my RAW files. (Now I have a note taped to my camera to remind me to check the settings before snapping away).
