A pleasant weekend at Blackheath

To counteract the long days of sitting in an office staring at a computer screen full of code I'm having another weekend away, this time in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney.

By accident, our visit coincides with the "Winter Magic" festival at Katoomba.

Lots of costumes and music including a local ukulele band:

A huge crowd turned up:

For some peace we headed off for a walk at Govetts Leap.

I can't help wondering what Ansel Adams would make of this place.

Big sky and all. (I don't have my RAW tools with me).

Along the walk someone took the leap:

Happily a parachute opened.

Now back to base for a complimentary port by the fire, or three.
