Ancient Land

Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

I had been exploring Kata Tjuta all day, but as the day drew to an end, I was drawn to capturing this angle and the ever-changing colours of the landscape. As I set up for this photograph, it was an awe-inspiring scene as the domes appeared to glow and turn a deep shade of red. I was sure the moment I had been waiting for would soon be at hand and as I pressed the shutter, I knew I had photographed the magnificence of this ancient land.

No journey to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is complete without a visit to Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), a striking group of ancient domed rock formations huddled together west of Uluru. There are 36 boulders shoulder to shoulder, forming deep valleys and steep-sided gorges. Many visitors to the area find them more captivating than their prominent neighbour Uluru (Ayers Rock). Together these giant stone formations form the two major landmarks within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The ochre-coloured shapes of Kata Tjuta are an intriguing and mesmerising sight.
