This is the lower portion of Adeline Cascades in the Blue Mountains. My earlier trip here was assisted by an 1896 map showing these cascades on a forgotten track. Next trip to this spot will involve trying to reach a good shooting position for the upper (and much larger) section of the cascades. On this occasion the flow of water was much more than usual, due to recent rain, hence the faster shutter speed to counter the increased highlights from the water. An hour after leaving this spot and returning to the top of the escarpment, nine bushwalkers had to be rescued from a nearby valley as they had been trapped between waterfalls after a cyclonic storm hit the region, courtesy of the relevant rack going across the creek at two points.
