Govetts Leap Sunrise || HDR PANORAMA



Taken (Sunday 26th August) with my man Edwin. Although this looks like quite a warm image, I can assure you with a wind chill of below 0c, that it was far from warm.

The Grose Valley is a rugged valley in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia. It has been formed by the Grose River, the headwaters of which are in the Mount Victoria area. The valley is located between the two major routes across the Great Dividing Range, the Great Western Highway and Bells Line of Road.

The Grose River has cut a deep gorge through the area as it makes its way east towards the Hawkesbury River. Sheer sandstone cliffs standing hundreds of metres above the river make for spectacular scenery and can be viewed extensively from the Blackheath area, where there are a number of accessible lookouts, the best known being Govetts Leap. The valley can also be viewed from lookouts near Bells Line of Road and points outside Mount Victoria.
