New South Wales, Australia

Up the hills, the Blue Mountains is a mountainous region in New South Wales, Australia.
Leave the hustle and bustle of the city and experience the beauty and tranquility of the Blue Mountains is worthwhile.

Here's some photos. Enjoy the panorama!
The sky went a funny and fearsome shade of gray, like the drops is going to haste from a sprinkle to a downpour in seconds as you stare.







Have you heard of the Aboriginal dream-time legend? 

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 wouldn't allow 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, one of the tribal elders 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, he, 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.
