The Three Sisters



HEADS or TAILS

I took this photograph in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales some time ago.Though the 'Three Sisters' don't show as clearly as in some shots I was pleased with the diagonal.

THE THREE SISTERS

Meehni, Wimlah and Gunnedoo were three sisters, led astray,
For they fell in love with three forbidden men.
This caused a fearful battle between warring tribes, they say,
For such battles seemed to happen now and then.
The three girls were in danger so at last they were transformed
By a witchdoctor! He turned them into stone!
And now you know the way in which these pinnacles were formed.
(And that's a fact that isn't widely known!)

Yes, when enlarged one can really appreciate the diagonal and the soft undulations of the distant
landscaping and sky. Nice anecdote about the 3 sisters.

Oh, I never thought tales like this would be over on some other places, I also thought this was just a local tale here in Philippines. We call it "Tres Marias" though, and some mountains over in Camiguin Island was named tres marias. Thanks for the photo it is indeed beautiful in the diagonal angle. :)

The witchdoctor needs some tinkering.
He should've changed the three "forbidden men" into stone.
(well, can hear you say, the photo then wouldn't have looked so pleasant :)))
