Photographs, Three Sisters, Katoomba, in the Upper Blue Mountains of NSW

The Three Sisters Katoomba in the Blue Mountains of NSW is one of the most popular tourist attractions to visit and take photographs in the Blue Mountains and Australia. The Aboriginal dream-time legend has it that three sisters, 'Meehni', 'Wimlah' and Gunnedoo' lived in the Jamison Valley as members of the Katoomba tribe. These beautiful young ladies had fallen in love with three brothers from the Nepean tribe, yet tribal law forbade them to marry. The brothers were not happy to accept this law and so decided to use force to capture the three sisters causing a major tribal battle.

As the lives of the three sisters were seriously in danger, a witchdoctor from the Katoomba tribe took it upon himself to turn the three sisters into stone to protect them from any harm. While he had intended to reverse the spell when the battle was over, the witchdoctor himself was killed. As only he could reverse the spell to  return the ladies to their former beauty, the sisters remain in their magnificent rock formation as a reminder of this battle for generations to come.

The beauty of the Three Sisters can be easily photographed from a number of locations near the Information Center and if you would like to get a closer look and take a few photographs, there is a fairly easy 20 minute walk, starting near the Information Center, to the Three Sisters .

Photographing the Three Sisters

There is no great secret to photographing the Three Sisters it is all about the light and the setting sun provides the light on the western side which is where the viewing areas are.  You just need a good day and the Threes Sisters will provide the beauty in your photographs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this photograph of the Three Sisters I opened up the lens a bit  more to take in the Jamison Valley and Mt Solitary in the distance.

Late evening with the sun setting this photo was taken on Cliff Drive on the bend just after Scenic World. The colour is different at this time of evening and from this angle; the blues become stronger and richer and feel of the photograph is cooler.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next two photographs were taken about an hour before sunset. The light is more yellow and the background a bit more blue in tone.
