For quite some time Katoomba has, as have Sydney and many parts of the State, been engulfed by a thick smoke haze from the surrounding bushfires.
So it was quite a surprise on Sunday morning to drop by Echo Point and come across the thickest mist cover I've seen there for a very, very long time.
Made bus photography interesting, as it was a case of pot luck as to what would come out of the void.
Here's a few shots of local buses I took on the day.
Departing Echo Point for Scenic World on Route 686 was 6999 MO, <br />Scania K280UB, Custom Bus CB80 of 2012 build.

Is that first pic a CB80 or a CM Valiant? The headlights ate about the same distance apart.

Good shots.
