I thought the pictures don't look at all as the 7 sisters I know ! and indeed, mine are located at the English South Eastcoast near Eastbourne and look completely different, lol ! I didn't know that there were other 7 sisters. In any case it's a beautiful place too !

I've got a photo of the "suitor" with a sailing boat alongside to show the scale of the thing.

Did you go up Dalsnibba?

Wow. What a totally amazing series of shots, imac!

My seven sisters are a range of hills in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, New England, USA.

You caught them very well - kudos to you.

BTW, did you know that there are seven sisters more in Norway? They are further to the north (Helgeland), but they are mountains.
