Not all Blue Mountains landslides are created equal

Posted by barbara on February 11, 2012


The once strikingly yellow face of the brand new cliff created by the Katoomba landslide in 1931 (pictured here on 3 Feburary 2012) continues to age, its colours darkened by the years, encroaching lichen and vegetation.


Water runs off the mighty face of one of Australia's noted big wall climbs.


Vertically striping the rock face, the drainage lines of Dogface are coated in lichens.


At the base of the landslide, the landslide debris, including a handful of unusually shaped rocks, are being colonised by a striking orange lichen.
