Today's photos are from the Lithgow area in Australia. Lithgow is a few hours drive west of Sydney and sits nestled up against the Blue Mountains. My dad grew up here and some of my Dad's family still live there. On one of our visits there we went to a few areas where I could get some great photos of the Australian countryside. Below are some of my favourites.
This is part of the Capertee Valley. It is like seeing a smaller version of the Grand Canyon but is covered with trees.
Some trees that were burned by a recent bushfire. Even though the fire occurred just a few months before this photo was taken the area has already started to grow back.
View from the top of one of the hills near Lithgow. The view from up here was stunning as you could see for miles in each direction.
This is one of my favourite photos from the trip. It's amazing how the plants can grow on the side of the rock and not fall off.
Do you have any lookouts or viewing platforms near where you live?
