Skywatch Friday & Friday's Fences: You can't fence this...

On Sunday afternoon we took a drive up to the Blackall Range. The Blackall Range dominates the hinterland area of south east Queensland's Sunshine Coast. Our first stop was Mary Cairncross Reserve, which marks the site of the first settler's house on the Blackall Range. The reserve is positioned in the mountain rainforests of the Maleny region overlooking the stunning Glass House Mountains.


You just can't fence off the views...



Even with the haziness of Summer, the views of the Glasshouse Mountains are still breathtaking.

We stayed up in the range all afternoon in order to capture the sunset...

As the sun set in the west, it was the end of a perfect New Years day.

What a view! And yes, any other fence would have ruined it. Those mountain peaks are so distinctive.

wow, such a stunning place. :) I am just sad because the link to Glass House Mountains don´t work.
I think the 3d from the bottom is the best shot. :)
