This trio of rock formations in the Blue Mountains of Australia is the subject of local lore and aboriginal legend, which are not always in agreement. I look at the way they stand together in front of their misty blue backdrop as something of lasting beauty and significance.

But as the outer layers of softer rock eroded over many years, the gray columns of the tower took shape. To see more entries in this week’s challenge, go to Leanne Cole Photography.
