About This Blog

My aim in starting this blog was to share something of interest from the places we have visited around Sydney, and in the nearby Blue Mountains where I live. I do many of my walks, especially hikes in bushland, with walking groups. My thanks to the leaders of these walks, and my walking companions. Our walks feature less commercial destinations, while my excursions often involve a café or coffee shop along the way.

Some posts are about well known destinations, while others feature not so well known spots. I have also included just a few longer journeys that are suitable for extended stays.    [Back to blog]

I have enjoyed photography since I was a boy, so photographs are the main focus of my blog. Clicking on the blog photographs may give some enlargement in a slide show format.

When walking with groups, it's mostly not possible to spend as much time taking a photo as you would like, so I select shots from those taken along the way, or return on another day. I also walk with family and friends and spend a little more time taking some photos, or combine photos from different visits.

When I walk in bush areas, even with a group, I always try to have a topographic map of the area and a compass with me. Link to NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service bushwalking safety suggestions.
If you appear in any of my photos and you are not comfortable with this, please let me know.
