Fine Art Landscape Photography of the Blue Mountains NSW Australia.
There is something about the Blue Mountains that lingers in my mind and soul. Is it the glorious blue mountain views, those moody sunrises. Or is it the mist and fog that shrouds the hidden valleys below. Or perhaps it is the magical colours of Autumn that captured my imagination many years ago in the beautiful gardens that adorn the suburbs of the Blue Mountains. Before they built the motorway’s that now make our trips up there much faster, it was always a joy to drive the old roads up there, even though it took twice as long, it is something that I miss.
I have been a regular visitor to the Blue Mountains for the past 45 years, my great grandmother lived there, my parents took me there countless times when I was a child, and I in return have taken my son there. My Husband and I have made countless trips to the mountains for relaxation, exercise and Photography.
I call the Blue Mountains my second home.
Photography isn’t the only reason I still visit the Blue Mountains. I go there for the fresh air, and the glorious fragrance of Eucalyptus. I have my favourite places to eat, my favourite spots to sit and contemplate, my favourite places to shop, my favourite nursery’s. I go there in all seasons, in all weather conditions.
My mind is still there long after I have gone home.
I have a connection to the Mountains, it is in my blood, and I feel it as soon as soon as I step out of the car.
My Photography of the Blue Mountains started a few years ago when I had the desire to portray all the beauty of the mountains through my Photography. It is not done for business, it is done through a personal connection that I feel for the Mountains.
It is nature at it’s finest, and at it’s worst. I feel it’s happiness and I feel it’s pain. It’s desire to survive amidst the many challenges of the world today.
A desire that I feel it is slowly losing.
