Taking with me great EF 70-200m f2.8 from 3 meters distance. This lens is just the best. First nice day for a long time in London and enjoyed most part of it in Blackheath

This was just a muck around edit this morning. The light in the valley is fake and the image is way over worked but I like the composition so here it is

Its A Long Way To The Top



Ridin' down the highway

Goin' to a show

Stop in all the byways

Playin' rock 'n' roll

Gettin' robbed

Gettin' stoned

Gettin' beat up

Broken boned

Gettin' had

Gettin' took

I tell you folks

It's harder than it looks


It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll

It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll

If you think it's easy doin' one night stands

Try playin' in a rock roll band

It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll


Went to Hanging Rock just outside Blackheath with two great mates on Thursday afternoon for sunset. 2 hour drive, a one hour hike on foot, and then we couldn't find the track down...well, we think we did, but weren't 100%. But, we're going back for a sunrise...Defínitely!! Anyway, we shot from the viewing point up the top. What a hairy but superbly stunning spot. One wrong move here, and you don't get a second chance. 300m to 400m drop easily. One of the most stunning locations I have photographed. I've been wanting to try a blend for a while, so this is one. 4 mins approx. for the sky, and 1/250th of a sec I think for us and the FG. Hope you like Ït's A Long Way To The Top". Cheers, Mike

This picture was taken in Blackheath during sunset. I used Canon EOS 550d


Playing around with a bit of a different approach here... I took this shot on the way back from Govetts leap yesterday morning... it is actually someone's front yard, set the camera up inside their yard and grabbed this one... I liked the pine trees and the contrast they provided with the mist floating above...

Blackheath is most famous for its annual ‘Rhododendron Festival’ held in November each year. The festival weekend includes some unusual activities such as the Chainsaw Competition. However the Rhododendrons are the major draw card as they are absolutely amazing. Visitors to Blackheath can visit the Blackheath Rhododendron Gardens located in Baccante Street.


Blackheath also hosts the Blackheath Art Society's Members Exhibition at Easter as well as many other art exhibitions throughout the year.
