Two Vietnamese guys share a drink on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. Some casual conversation to escape the warm February weather.

This is a throwback to last year when I was in Ohio. Applied some new Lightroom learnings... turned out pretty nice.

It's easy too see why it's called the Blue Mountains. This is part of a 50 image Panorama stitch.
.
The location is Govetts Leap and was named after William Govett, one of the first surveyors of the upper Blue Mountains, in 1831.
.
There is a dramatic legend that tells of an escaped convict - turned bushranger named Govett who, pursued by troopers, found himself trapped on the edge of a 300 metre cliff. Preferring death to capture, he wheeled his horse around and together they leapt over the edge. .
To dispel the legend, Govetts Leap wasn't named because he jumped off the cliff at this point. The Scots Dialect Dictionary compiled by Alexander Warrack MA describes a 'leap' as a 'small cataract' - a cataract is a waterfall. Therefore Govetts Leap actually refers not to the lookout, but to the falls in Govetts Leap Brook, often known as Bridal Veil Falls. .
.
.
I'm keen to head down into the Gorge for some shots of the waterfalls and up at the towering Cliffs, anyone keen to join on a little adventure.

The best part about a sunrise that as the sun rises the view only gets better. The range of colours were amazing. I might have to become a morning person more often 😉.

The sunrise this morning was incredible. It was me and some other guy with a Canon 😉. I had a couple of shots in mind as I woke up at 4am to get an early start and make the blue hour. The first shot i've always wanted to get is just a silhouette of the three sisters but i'm not a morning person so i've always arrived too late. Today... happy with.
