Uluru (Ayers Rock), Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia
After five days in a row with not a single cloud in the sky, clouds rolled in over the area. With pink and magenta hues highlighting the clouds and the rock itself bathed in magnificent red light, this truly was an ideal time to photograph Uluru. For me, this resultant sunset photograph captures much of the essence that makes Uluru so popular.
Rising 348 metres above the central Australian desert, Uluru totally dominates the surrounding landscape. This spectacular red rock formation is millions of years old and has countless moods and manifestations. The ever changing colours and hues of Uluru make this one of Australia's most well known and photographed natural landmarks. Rich in significance to its traditional indigenous custodians, Uluru truly is an Australian icon.
