The Three Sisters

Puke Ariki, our local museum has this striking display. (although I admit I have Photoshopped out some labels on the rocks in order to clean up the image a bit). In the foreground is the skeleton of a dolphin, and in the background we have The Three Sisters which are about and hour north of of New Plymouth and of course a local treasure. About 4 years ago I photographed them.

Within a month the middle one, known as the ‘skinny sister’ collapsed into the sea so I was fortunate to see it. At the time I was forming a trust, so it became The Three Sisters Trust.
