A fabulous photo of this majestic mountain in its snowy setting. Good depth of field brings out details in the snow-covered plant in the foreground, and the low light picks out lots of detail in the background.

The snow really makes this photo something special, because we don't see many winter shots of Monte Fitzroy. You found a great viewpoint with the magnificent mountain framed by snowy trees. The strange cloud on top of the peak adds to the scene.

A good sharp night shot of the famous landmark. There is just enough ambient light to make out the cliffs in the background. I bet it was cold there.
Concerning the origin of the name, it has nothing to do with Mie scattering by eucalyptus oil droplets. I don't know who invented this fairy tale but it has taken root in the tourist literature like some noxious weed. The mountains were named by the first settlers in Sydney before anyone had actually been to the mountains. They looked blue from Sydney because they are 70 kilometres away. Any mountain range will look blue from that distance no matter where it is, and no matter what vegetation it has, because water vapour and dust in the atmosphere make distant things look blue. Most photographers are well aware of this effect. Look at your photos from other parts of the world and you will convince yourself that distant mountains look the same shade of blue everywhere - eucalyptus oil is not necessary. I'll get off my soap box now.

A fascinating old building. Your wide view shows well the scale of the building and its golden decorations. The artwork looks decidedly medieval at the top, but seems to become more modern towards the bottom where it looks like renaissance or later. It has obviously had a few makeovers over the centuries.
