Sugarloaf DeLight…

by on Mar.22, 2017, under Life, Photography

Here we stand in Sugarloaf Creek. The creek runs under Eastern Valley Way and through a rainforest before entering Crag Cove next to Castlecrag. This little gem of a creek sitting right next to roads and houses in suburbia is host to two larger sets of falls along with two smaller sets of cascades. Plenty of waterfall opportunities should you come here after rains.

Downstream from Eastern Valley Way, the creek flows over a fairly large set of falls (up behind me). Here, the water cascades into a 15 metre high semi-circular rock overhang into a pool, and then passes over and around giant boulders on its way to Crag Cove, Sugarloaf Bay and eventually on to Middle Harbour.

I’m standing amongst these beautiful green moss covered boulders under a canopy of beautifully lit ferns. We are positioned between the upper falls and a middle set of cascades behind the camera.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

This lovely little cascade is surrounded by these luscious ferns and the light filtering down from the overcast skies was fantastic today. Not to mention having a nice strong flow of water from all the heavy rains Sydney has been experiencing for the past few weeks.
