You Know you are nearly at The Uluru (Ayres Rock) when you see Mt Connor
At sunset Mt Connor takes on the appearance of a crimson plateau, it is often mistaken by tourists as Uluru (Ayres Rock). Mt Connor is on private land so access can only be supplied by the land owner upon request.
I caputred this photo of Mt Connor from a sand dune several kilometres from the actual Mountain. As A landscape photographer patients is important so waiting those 6o minutes just prior the sunset for just the right light to focus on Mt Connor gives you the effect of “The Crimson Plateau’. Finding the sand dune which gives you the height you need which lends it’s self to the perspective of the mountain also helps.
Mt Conner rises 300m above the outback floor and can easily be confused with Uluru, since it can be seen from the road to Uluru and Kata Tjuta, when approaching from Alice Springs. It was named Mount Conner by William Gosse in 1873 after local politician of the time.
