Play of light in Blue Mountains and Gold Coast of AU...

Recommended Posts

[Note: This post is partly triggered by a member suggestion to visit the Blue Mountains of Australia (please see my earlier post on "Red Devils and Red Flame" A320 flight). I'd planned next to explore the Gold Coast, but I've added here a visit to the Blue Mountains of New South Wales for this post.]

Having just arrived in Sydney after overflying the Snowy Mountains, for this post, I lift off Sydney heading first northwest towards the Blue Mountains which are almost bordering on the outskirts of Greater Sydney area (just about 30 miles far as the crow flies). While (virtually) visiting this Blue Mountains range, I felt that though it's not as widespread as e.g., the Appalachian Mountains of U.S. East Coast (such as the Smokies and the Alleghenies, which I've had chance to visit several times), it presents a similarly scenic sense of charm and beauty (and that "bluish" and "dreamy" look...🙂...), which comes naturally with only low-elevation (cascading) range of mountains and ridges. The highest elevation of the Blue Mountains range is just under 4,000 ft, but it's undoubtedly pretty. Please see my pictures (shot #s 5-11), as I've tried to capture its mood under varying light conditions, as I have flown over and across it.

Then I've headed toward Queensland and the famous Gold Coast, first arriving in the city of Gold Coast (YBCG), and then flying north along the pristine beaches of Gold Coast up towards Brisbane (YBBN), the capital of Queensland. Again, I've explored the moods of this beautiful coastline, infused with the golden glow of the sun rising to the east, off the South Pacific Ocean. Please see my (ending) pictures (shot #s 16-20), as I reluctantly bid farewell, for now, to the Gold Coast...🙂....

Hope you enjoy this collection of images from my trip. Thanks for viewing...!

Wide-ranging tour! (You must save at least some of the continent for later. 🙂) Like the way you included some golden sun for the Gold Coast.
