The Three Sisters by Leanne Lindsay

The light was fading as I arrived at The Three Sisters, one of the most recognizable natural landmarks in Australia. They’re three massive sandstone rock formations in the Blue Mountains, and they’re a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The rocks are named after an Aboriginal legend. The story goes that three sisters were turned to stone to protect them from three brothers who wanted to marry them against their will. The sisters’ father, a powerful Aboriginal sorcerer, turned them to stone to keep them safe.

Millions of tourists visit the Three Sisters every year. This photo was taken from Echo Point, one of the most popular lookouts in the Blue Mountains. From Echo Point, you can see the Three Sisters in all their glory. You can also take a walk through the Jamison Valley, which is the valley that the Three Sisters sit in.

Born in Adelaide in 1962, Leanne Lindsay’s family moved to Sydney when she was 12 years old. She was gifted her first camera for her 21st birthday but a break-in saw her precious camera stolen just 3 years later. It was only in her late 50s she was able to afford to replace it and now in her 60s she has discovered a passion that was sadly lost many years ago. She now photographs families and newborns but enjoys architectural photography and landscapes in particular.
