I woke up at 6.30am today, which in Singapore time is 4.30am! 😱😱😱
We're still on the Blue mountains, and the weather has been just as windy and cold today. I bundled up with three layers of clothing and my coat, and it was still cold!
There was a slight drizzle, so rainbows were abound today. Beautiful!
My Hunter boots came into good use! 😁😁😁
Glad I wore them out muahaha.. They were fantastic especially in the chilly wet caves and while we were trodding about tall knee-length grass to get good pictures!
The first place we were brought to was the same spot we visited the day before, in hopes of getting better pictures.
It was still insanely windy, but just slightly better than the day before. The view of the Blue Mountains was really breath-taking.
The best shot I could get with my hair whipped into a crazy mess. Do you see that rainbow right behind me? 😍
The wind deserves another video.
On the roads to Jenolan Caves!
The Blue Mountains are really very scenic. We stopped at a couple of spots by the road just to take photos!
For a city girl like me, seeing the wide expanses of landscapes was exhilarating!
Off cave exploring we go!
According to Wikipedia, Jenolan Caves are the most ancient discovered open caves in the world 🙀
The underwater river was incredible!
When light passes through the water, the limestone particles causes the water to reflect in varying shades of blue.
I couldn't help thinking about that lake scene from Phantom of the Opera lolol!
More interestingly-shapes formations.
Climbing through the caves was quite the experience! There were numerous ascends and some very steep descends, and in the damp chill and near darkness, it was quite anxiety-inducing at times! It's absolutely safe though and not dangerous at all 😁
Lunch after the caves. I was famished! Too much energy expended in facing the strong winds and climbing in caves. Yay food!
This photo was taken by Yudi, one of the many professional photographers in our team. He is a photojournalist for Nat Geo Indonesia! I feel really privileged to be able to interact with and learn from these experienced ones.
My highlight of the day: a close encounter with some furry friends! We spotted two kangaroos hopping about the roads and stopped the coach just to go down and make friends with these furry ones. And they were surprisingly docile and didn't run away, but even came closer to us!
Hello you little one!!
Oh wait, a selfie taken outside the Jenolan Caves!
The Three Sisters is one of the most famous rock formations in Blue Mountains! Do you see them, to the left of this picture?
Unfortunately.. The weather was just way too windy. My ears felt like they were about to drop off from the cold! 😭 It was also very cloudy so the sun light wasn't that fantastic for landscape photography.
The best picture I took, before I ran back to the coach for shelter from the freezing wind!
