More images from the Blue Mountains…one of my favourite places. First is the spectacular rock formation,The Three Sisters, at Echo Point, Katoomba, made even more famous this week by a couple of very famous visitors. Those I photographed were just normal tourists, but still, I couldn’t resist capturing their enthusiasm and happiness. I wondered if some were honeymooners too. What do you think?
The first series have very little editing. I did Sharpen and increase Vibrance using Photoshop and adjust Tones and and Contrast.
