View Full Version : Autumn in the Blue Mountains

15-04-2011, 5:00pm
If anyone is considering coming to the Blue Mountains for Autumn colour, there is already a good show on. Some large trees have already started dropping leaves. These were taken during a quick stop on the way home this afternoon, just to show what it's like at the moment. They are jpg's straight from the camera, no editing.

'My pick is the last one is that lichen on the branch '

Sorry-was in a hurry, just realised I didn't answer your question. Yes, it is lichen, and grows a lot on plants, etc. here. Probably does everywhere - I don't know enough about it. It does make a wonderful subject, though. I like photographing it in it's different forms when I'm out in the bush.

Thank you for sharing, I really miss the beautiful colours of the autumn leaves, I grew up in Sydney and this reminds me of home. My favourite is the second one, to me the colours are spot on.

This is in Wentworth Falls ( on Blaxland Road ), just around the corner from my house. There are some beautiful mature maples along here,which put on a great display every year. They are colouring nicely now, and soon will be magnificent. Parts of Katoomba have good displays as well, and also Blackheath ( a little higher and a little cooler).
