I'm sorry Sylvia, Linda, Edith, Adeline, and Marguerite, but Katoomba Falls are my new BFF (Best Falls Forever). This is the mid-section.

On this day I had my new BFF all to myself, from shortly after dawn for the next 2 hours. To the right, the Jamison Valley stretched out in front of me, with Mt Solitary wearing the fog like a hat. Ever so slowly, the fog inched its way up the valley, Katoomba already was covered above me, blocking out the Sky way cable car. The shooting conditions were perfect. Overcast with no wind. I was tempted to venture right across and re-shoot what is a much better angle for these falls, but that 150m drop just to the right .....

With this shot I engaged the lens's Tilt function horizontally and stopped down further than normal so as to widen the left to right field of focus in the middle of the frame.
