Party - Albert, Dave
Albert and myself spent a weekend visiting and photographing some of
the nice canyons in the Blue Mountains. Our first canyon was Rocky
Rocky Creek canyon is a deep and dark canyon and always quite cold.
So it is hard to photograph. We had a bright sunny day - and so the
light was very contrasty. In these conditions it is best to avoid
directly lit sections of the canyon and photograph areas lit by
reflected light. We went down the canyon and then back up it.

After the canyon we headed of to camp at a nice place above Carne
Creek. After setting up our tents, we headed out to a nearby lookout
to take a few photos of the spectacular gorge of Carne Creek.
