Bondi Beach and the Blue Mountains

photography, travel Add comments

Bondi Beach is perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever visited. The deep blue water punctuated by the white waves as they crashed just off shores was more than a little inviting, even to us non-surfers. As we walked the sandy beach surfers took to the water making up the difference, and by end of day there were too many to count.

We followed up the trip to Bondi Beach to the Blue Mountains. A two hour ride by train west of Sydney, the Blue Mountains are one of the more popular destinations outside of Sydney, particularly to those wanting to get away from urban center. The most famous attraction in the Blue Mountains is the Three Sisters, 3 rugged towers of rock reaching for the sky before giving way to the deep blue of the valley below.

We were lucky to catch the Three Sisters at magic hour, just before sunset. The views were spectacular. While I had visited the Blue Mountains on my previous trip to Sydney in 2001… the views continue to inspire. But as the sun continued to drop below the horizon, so did the temperature… and it was time to head home.
