Wonder: Lens Artists Challenge

The Blue Mountains are a place of wonderment and from a different point I too looked in wonder (see below) but my biggest cause for wonder was “what were those things that looked like lights shining through a building below those looking in wonder from above?

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. Great shots, Irene. We had a photo taken at the Three Sisters. How many steps to climb down? I can’t remember.


  2. I don’t think you could get me near that railing. I’m fine looking at the view from right here.

    We visited the Blues and the 3 Sisters during our visit years ago. They are really quite beautiful. I think we did a cable car ride down and then a guided night walk to see the creepy crawlies (not my fav!!!). Wonderful choice for the challenge Irene

    Wow, this seems to be a real treat, but all those steps – worth the effort!

    The lighting in the first shot is great, Irene. I love the expansiveness captured in the second.
