Photographer's Note

Australia's Blue Mountains have plenty of flora & fauna to explore, plus geological interest like Govett's Leap. And located about 50 kilometers from Sydney.
The name Blue Mountains probably comes from 'mie scattering' a blue atmospheric tinge caused by incoming ultraviolet particles scattering. The abundant eucalyptus trees may emit 'volatile terpenoids' contriubuting to the mie scattering.
