The Three Sisters, Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia. I took this in the summer of 2007, in the midst of an amazing trip up Australia’s east coast, starting in Melbourne and ending in Port Douglas, with stops along the way in Sydney, Brisbane, a 24 hour sunset and sunrise trip to Uluru, and a brief stay in a stunning rainforest treehouse…
Everything came together perfectly at the moment the shutter depressed. The winter sun illuminated the Sisters, bringing them sharply into focus, setting them alight and adding a warmth to a day more suited to gloves, fleecey hats and gradually numbing toes. The shadows in the background, stretching towards more distant mountains and the horizon beyond, create a textured backdrop, naturally supporting the Sisters and allowing them to shine for this fleeting moment.
