Photographer's Note

Please open both photos in new tabs for the better versions.
The populated areas where I live, the Southern Highlands of new South Wales are mainly amongst rolling hills of rich farmland but around the edges are forested ridges and then deep valleys and gorges with rivers leading to the coast.
This photo was taken at the locality Meryla in another part of Morton National Park to my last series from around Bundanoon. This is typical of the region with a sharp cliff at the top and then steep slopes and smaller cliffs as you go down. Near where I took this photo is an access road down into a valley but it is still closed from last years catastrophic fires. In this photo and a closer up in the WS you can see patches of burnt trees that aren't fully recovered yet - note especially the flat areas above the cliffs (best in the large view). Both photos were taken looking through the tops of burnt trees.
