Photographer's Note

Weeping Rock Falls is the first fall leading to the much taller Wentworth Falls on Jamison Creek, Blue Mountains. It seems to be deep in the bush, but the town of Wentworth Falls, an offshoot really of Katoomba and Leura, is not far off, and Jamison Creek valley, followed by the Darwin Track, plunges straight through the town.

There's great bushwalking to be had all round this area, with the most spectacular views you could wish for: the vertiginous path down the vertical cliff next to the main Wentworth Falls is good for starters (bear in mind that what goes down must come up!)

We were bushwalking on the day I took this, and therefore I didn't have a tripod with me. To get the veil of falling water needed a couple of seconds exposure, so I had to balance the camera on a very wet rock. Despite a very small aperture, the long shutter speed has burned the sky out too much (another thing I didn't have was an ND filter!); P'shop has done a partial recovery job. So not technically perfect, but I like it. Negative as ever scanned on a Nikon dedicated film scanner @ 3200 ppi, giving a 100mg 16 bit file.
