Very early morning as the sun’s light hits Kata Tjuta

Just a slither of early morning light hits Kata Tjuta. The air was crisp and clean, so was the vision of Kata Tjuta which was some distance away. This is where you appreciate the money you have spent on pro quality lenses. The 36 domes that make up Kata Tjuta which for me personally are more interesting than Uluru.  Mount Olga, is  rises approximately 550 m above the ground which is some 200m higher than Uluru. These mountain’s were  discovered by Ernest Giles in 1872  and are some 350km south west of Alice springs.

It amazing  just how things have changed over time when I was at the  Kata Tjuta  back in 1990 you were allowed to climb over some of the dome’s. Which today is not allowed as it disrespects the local indignities culture.  The road now is also tarmac instead of a pretty bad dirt road back then.

Photo Tip

I shot this with a 200 mm Nikor lens, it is worth noting that a good pro quality lens which might me worth $4000 is only as good as the UV filter you put in front of i. There is in my mind no point in spending that type of money and put a $45 filter on it  you are wasting your time.
