Blue Mountains Australia The Giant Staircase, The Three Sisters, Katoomba

The Blue Mountains region is an area close to Sydney in New South Wales Australia. Less than an hours drive from Sydney it is a very popular recreation area which attracts many tourists.

The Tree Sisters is one of several well known natural attractions in the area and is visited by hundreds of tourists every day.

The Three Sisters is a unique sandstone rock formation at Echo Point, near the township of Katoomba.

The name it has is from an Aboriginal legend about 3 sisters who fell in love with 3 brothers from another tribe which they were not allowed to marry. This caused a tribal battle. To make the story short, to protect the 3 sisters they were turned into stone by a whitchdoctor. It was supposed to be temporary but the whitchdoctor died and no one could reverse the spell.

The population of the Blue Mountains is around 73.000 and one of them is Andrew Nemeth, the photographer who was one of the first to do VR Photography in a unique creative way.

2005 - March 13 3 year anniversary

From Downunder to the Top of the World

3 years has gone since I presented the first Fullscreen Panorama feature.
At anniversaries you usually look back and talk about the successes in the past period.

The successes I had with the Everest, the Apollo Missions, Jook Leung's New Years panoramas etc. has and continues to get hundreds of hits each day, but there are many other amazing panoramas in the archive.

I have picked some of the panoramas from the archive which has not got the attention they deserve.
