The Royal National Park

Reflections of trees on a river in The Royal National Park NSW Australia.

Mirror Of Our Souls – 2020


The Royal National Park in New South Wales Australia has some very pretty spots.

It was a park that I spent a great deal of time in when I was younger, and mostly during the day before Photography.

I had never been here before sunrise.


Early morning river bank reflections in The Royal National Park NSW Australia.



As the darkness departed and not a breath of wind was around to leave a ripple on the waters surface,

except for an occasional fish, reflections of the trees and the rocks on the water, took my breath away.

Tall trees cast their reflections in a river in the Royal National Park in NSW Australia.

River Of Dreams


I wondered at one stage as I was taking shots, about how amazing this National Park is, to have survived for so long and still be so beautiful.

The Royal National Park is the Second oldest park in the world after Yellowstone in the US, it is also the oldest park in Australia, and as I look at this image I see something very old and ancient, almost like time has stood still.

There were no people around at this time of the morning except for an odd car en route to an unknown destination,

and I thank my lucky stars that I was here, at this time and able to enjoy the peace and soothing tranquility, the freshness of a new day, the faint scent of the Australian bush that always delights, and the exhilaration that being at one with nature can provide.

As I am sitting here writing this post amidst all the turmoil of the world, amidst all my troubles, I think to myself that I must do this again.

But thinking and doing are two different things entirely, and I know that if I don’t do it again, at least I have actually done it.
