The Three Sisters, Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia

Three Sisters formation in the Blue Mountains, NSW, AU
Legend has it that three sisters were turned to stone by a medicine man who intended to reverse the spell when it was safe to do so... but he was killed in battle so they remain as stone to this day. Here they are posing for a close-up with the Jamison Valley behind them. This view was taken on my hike around the Cliff Walk today... cannot recall which lookout provided this spectacular view but it was somewhere near Echo Point on the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. (NOTE: there is more than one legend of the Three Sisters, all involve turning them to stone (either by a witch doctor or medicine man) to keep them safe with plans to return them to their natural state being foiled by the untimely death of the spell caster)
