This shot of the middle section of Katoomba Falls was taken in July 2009. Since then, on every return trip, I shake my head and rue my decision to make my way across the rock platform to find this composition. Not because it was a bad composition, far from it. Indeed, this angle is the best side of this drop to shoot. But because it was not a safe thing to do. Visitors to this location will know what I mean.
