Uluru (Ayers Rock) & Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is the true heart of Australia both geographically and emotionally for many people. Sitting right in the middle of nowhere in a remote desert, this spectacular national park is truly an iconic landscape. Rising out of the surrounding central Australian desert, Uluru and Kata Tjuta totally dominate the landscape. These spectacular red rocks and domes which are millions of years old, are not only absolutely breathtaking but represent an important aspect of local living Aboriginal culture, stretching back tens of thousands of years. Today, Uluru is now a place that is special for all Australians. When I visited Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park on this occasion I could not help but appreciate how special this area is, there is nothing else like it in the world. When photographing Uluru and Kata Tjuta together, I wanted to convey as much of the true feeling of this area as I could through my photographs. With magnificent panoramic views of both Uluru and Kata Tjuta on the horizon, I stood absorbing the ever changing landscape. For me, the resulting photograph captured the spiritual heart of Australia.
