Echo Point at Three Sisters
Australia

Taken at the Echo Point lookout close to the famous Three Sisters of the Blue Mountains in Australia.  Part of the Blue Mountains are a National Park and it is located within a 2 hour train ride from downtown Sydney.  Echo Point and the Three Sisters are near the town of Katoomba.

I attempted to take a 360 in the afternoon a day earlier, but clouds moved in and ruined the shot.  This photo was taken mid-morning and the Three Sisters are silhouetted by the light.  The rocks are beautiful when lit by the late afternoon sun.  Still you can see the view from here is stupendous, and even more beautiful in the late afternoon sunlight.  You can also see the blue tint of haze covering the distant mountains which is how they got their name.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
