This past weekend I spent a brief couple of hours photographing near Mount Wilson and Katoomba in the Blue Mountains area of New South Wales, Australia.
Although it is the end of the season, remnant autumn colour abounds at Breenhold Gardens. I went looking for colour and fanciful toadstools on a brisk and breezy dusk and was fortunate to find both.
This quintessential toadstool, Amanita muscaria, is commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita. I looked hard but unfortunately I failed to find any gnomes or fairies 😉
A bit more colour…
More fungi – clumps of mushrooms.
On the way home after dark I stopped in Katoomba as the train station caught my eye. The first two images were on the way to the platform…
This is the view of the Katoomba train station that enticed me to stop and photograph on what was fast becoming a bloody cold evening.
I hope you enjoyed this very limited discovery of a portion of the Blue Mountains.
