Mist falls, Den Fenella National Pass, Blue Mountains NP

Lady Fenella, Macbeth's grandmother, set a cunning trap for the king at Dunsynane. She used an old Viking horde to create a likeness of the king, adorned with gems, to tempt him to her keep. She fled from the murder down a Scottish waterfall, so steep that her pursuers claimed she was a witch. Today, the Scottish Den Fenella is lost beneath a metal railway bridge.
A homesick Scot brought the story of the witch Fenella to New South Wales and gave the name to a dizzying escarpment and the mist falls that plunge off the cliffs near Wentworth Falls. Here the mist coats rocks, grasses and ferns, creating the illusion of running water.

A simple shot (with a CPL filter set to maximum) of one of the mist falls developed with VSCO emulation Kodak E100VS Landscape. Mist falls sound romantic, but your cameras will get wet if you get too close or attempt a backlit shot of the water.

Katoomba Falls

Controversy reigns over the name of this creek and the waterfall. Recent studies of recorded conversations dating back to early settlement suggest that the present name was adopted from a first people name for something completely different, possibly by an early developer looking for a catchy name for this amazing place.

This weekend I did a kayak paddle along with about 20 people down the Macallister River from Licola through Macallister gorge coming out just after Cheynes Bridge.

Some of the rapids were big enough to completely swamp me.

There were loads of fun rapids, quite challenging to deal with in my beach kayak. Lots of big pressure waves on the river that's just below minor flood.

Other rapids were a little smaller and only a bit splashy.
