Katoomba Blue Mountains Astrophotography

Katoomba, Blue Mountains Milky WayCold night at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains saw me at Echo Point lookout where the Three Sisters are.

Going up the Blue Mountains to Katoomba in the middle of winter with a few photos in mind isn’t that unusual. But at 1 am in the morning after it had been snowing that week, I was a little bit out of my comfort zone.

Anyway after a somewhat uncomfortable few hours and loss of feeling in my exposed extremities, I managed to capture more than I had expected, being in a location so close to Sydney and the city lights.

I’d gone up the mountains with the intention of photographing the Perseids Meteor Shower but ended up getting some nice shots of the Milky Way. I hope you enjoy.
