The Katoomba Night Lit Walk
Last year I was invited by Blue Mountains City Council to help capture some updated imagery for the newly opened Katoomba Night Lit Walk. The stretch of the Prince Henry Cliff Walk between Cliff View Lookout (near to the Scenic Skyway East Station) and Reids Plateau near to the Katoomba Falls Kiosk had been fully refurbished making it an easy to access walkway with downward balustrade lighting to light the walkway, and updated floodlighting onto Orphan Rock and Katoomba Falls. Coupled with the existing lighting in the distance at Echo Point onto the 3 sisters, this has created a beautiful nightscape to enjoy if you are visiting the Blue Mountains overnight.
The project involved a couple of nights shooting the walkways which at the time were devoid of people invariably due to Covid lockdowns. So I got to work with the trusty Sony A1, A7R IV and 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens to gather some great nightscapes of various parts of the walk.
The images are now part of the BMCC library of imagery for use in web and publication, and a few have been added to the official Katoomba Night Lit Walk webpage and maps.
Head over to the official Katoomba Night Lit Walk Website hosted by Blue Mountains City Council for more details of the walk.
A big thanks to Cam Jones Imagery for his help with this project. Check out his awesome work.
