Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
I still find it amazing that (particularly) women wandered about the Australian landscape wearing so much clothing.
Don't think I'd call that a road!
What is that small "shrine" that the lady is standing in front of?
The 'shrine' is a drinking water well, one of two on the Princes Rock track, installed around 1887 by the original track maker, Peter Mulheran, for the trustees of the Wentworth Falls Reserve. They were originally covered with a metal grill with a small opening allowing walkers to fill an enamel mug, attached to a chain, with pure mountain water. There is a third well on the nearby Undercliff Track. All are still in existence, but without their communal mugs and the purity of the water, alas, can no longer be vouched for.
