Blue Moutains – (3)

April 19, 2011

Before looking down on the ground in my last posts from Blue Mountains, Australia, I will show you this last photo of the beautiful landscape.

This time with one of the famous spots there called Three Sisters in front:

Like in the previous posts this photo is captured in Katoomba, where you can have some spectacular views of the landscape.

And of course there is a love story behind the name, Three Sisters 😉

And the name, Blue Mountains?

It originates from the optical phenomenon, that occurs when particles in the air is reflected in the sunlight.  And the more distant we look at the horizon, the more particles we are looking through – and the more blue color there is in the air!

Consequently there are many mountains on earth who have got this name!

I wish you a Happy Easter – and hope you will have the opportunity to watch the horizon whereever you are…..

    It’s a beautiful view and the story of the 3 sisters is most interesting. At least they have a beautiful view to watch for eternity. 🙂

    Love the distant mountains and now I know why they are called the Blue mountains. Happy Easter – hope you have a wonderful long weekend.

    More very nice photos from “Down under”!. The Blue Mountains really deserve their name. Lots of nice diagonals in this one, and the scenery in the post below is stunning.

    God Påske fra en norsk fjord 😉

      I hope you enjoyed Easter over there too. Did you have nice weather like us?!

        We DID! It was a really lovely, sunny, warm day until around 2:00pm. It was nice to simply feel the sun on our skin, even for just a short time. The air smelled warm and the critters were extremely active. A wonderful day all around!

    Amazing picture, site and story ! I love this view, simply spectacular. Have you seen this Australian movie from 2006 “Jindabyne” ? I think its story (dramatic) happens in the “Blue Mountains”. The images are superb and the story draws our attention between the difficult relations between Aborigines and some Australians in those remote areas.

      Thank you for your comment and remark about this film. I do not know the film – but it sounds interesting – I will examine whether it is available here!

    I have a fondness for the blue mountains of North Carolina – My home state. The Blue Ridge Mountains are very old and magical. I’ll be teaching a quilt making workshop at Penland Craft School in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains for two weeks this summer. Can’t wait!

    Thanks for visiting me at via Isa. Glad to discover your blog!
