A rocky outcrop called Castle Rock only a KM or so from Chambers Pillar.
After a long drive south of Alice Springs (In Australia’s Northern Territory) is the turn off for “Chambers Pillar” in the same region is Castle Rock a rocky outcrop who’s photographic brilliance is best taken advantage of at sunset. My first trip was back in 2006 but the technology of digital photography had not as yet come to age I would have to wait some four years for my next return.
The Best time of day to photograph Castle Rock is sunset which is the complete opposite to Chambers Pillar in which pre dawn is the optimum time to photograph this landmark. So if you are looking at photographing these two landmarks I would recommend leaving Alice Springs mid morning with the aim of setting up camp mid afternoon and get ready for your dusk and dawn photos. However It goes without saying that if it is cloudy or you expect cloud around dawn you will not receive the light you need for a Lloyd Howlett quality type of image . Best to wait a day or so for the weather to clear.
Castle Rock is right next to Chambers Pillar (Discovered by John Mc Douall Stewart in 1860) is a sandstone formation which is 160 km south of Alice Springs on some not to great roads in the Northern Territory.
