ABOUT: Capertee Valley is hailed as the world’s widest canyon and it is certainly full of photogenic potential. The Gardens of Stone National Park is nearby and overlaps and Wolgan Valley is just around the corner. Pearsons lookout is one of the highest overlooks of the whole ‘Canyon’ and offers good views of Pantoney’s Crown mid right of shot.
PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: As the world’s widest canyon, panoramics are best from here and late afternoon and sunset ideal, but sunrise will provide great sculptured lighting across the peaks. A super wide and medium lens for panoramic stitching.
GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: The lookout is as marked and a 30 second drive off the main highway up a short hill – only 2km from Capertee Village.
