This is where I live
Thought Id put a few pictures of The Blue Mountains where I live.Its about 1 and a half hours from Sydney.I love living here,we have Penrith at the foot of the mountains for shopping and with our lovely Nepean River complete with its paddle steamer.The mountains themselves are called blue because thats how they look from a distance,its a phenomenon caused by the eucalyptus oil in the gum leaves .Sometimes i take living here for granted but then i go shopping in Springwood and right behind the shops is a view to take your breath away.Its a lot more crowded up here than when i first moved here but i still love it.I took these photos myself and am always surprised how great a digital camera is.
The lake is one of our lakes near Canberra lake George i just had to include it .There is nothing like Australia in a drought.Thats sheep walking accross what a few years ago was a full lake.There are still no swimming signs up.
The kookaburra our laughing friend i love them .The blue Tongue lizard there is sunning itself in our yard.Easy to think they are snakes.The picture of the valley and mountain is in Wentworth Falls a few towns further up the Mountains.I took that one sunset when we were looking for McNaughts comet.
