Katoomba Falls viewed from Reid's Lookout. Katoomba is a popular tourist location about 100km west of Sydney in the Blue Mountains. Its situated at an elevation of just over 1,000m. The cable car in the shot travels across the gorge for scenic views. Just beyond the cable car you can see the famous Three Sisters rock formation. Some great walks can be undertaken here and its possible to venture down to the valley floor and get views of the falls from below.

this is surely one of the best shots that I have seen of this iconic location,
The square format suits the composition perfectly , the colours are believable and the basket well placed over the chasm adding drama and interest,with superb details it is just a fabulous shot.
My best regards,

wow, what an amazing view. your picture is well composed with the cliff face and the waterfall in full view, while the drop before us is so impressively captured with your picture. the inclusion of the cable car in the corner is an added bonus and helps provide scale to the whole scene.
have a great week,

A fantastic nature's view from your POV and also from the cable-car's perspective, Chris.
The high cliff with the cascade provids a great focal point of interest, but the whole ridge stretchs till far in the horizon, is an intriguing sight for photography. Well collected.
Have a nice week ahead,
