Mandarin Orange Monday 90

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.

  3. What fantastic weathering on the mountains. I like your filters and treatments, my favorite is the spiky grass and the railing. The couples are cute, too.

  4. Thanks for visiting me – I hadn’t kept track when you started back up (life is chaotic, because we’re buying a house about 7 hours away:) ) Have never been in the area of the blue mountains – beautiful! And as always your inventive uses for the color orange:)
