The Red Heart of Australia, Uluru at Sunset.
These days the access to photograph Uluru is strictly controled and access is limited by the govening locals.
So after waiting some 45 minutes for the right moment while standing on the roof of my tall 4wd I proceeded to take some 80 or so images most of which I have rejected leaving me with only a few that cut the mustard. Please note that unlike other landscape photographers (not all) I am a purist who believes that what you capture is what you get, and don’t photoshop colours to improve an image. In my mind this is cheating and anyone could create great photos.
The Next day I drove to Kata Tjuta (The Olgers) which I had fallen in love with back in 1990. From my personal point of view these 36 domes are far more interesting and diverse than Uluru and make much better subject matter for the landscape Photographer.
Uluru (Ayers Rock) is the red heart of Australia. It was discovered by William Goose in 1873 and was named (Ayres Rock ) after a South Australian politician of the period.
If you visit Australia Uluru is a must see, though I would recommend you go in the cooler months as in summer it can get extremely hot and the fly population becomes intolerable. This I why most of my Australian Landscape photographs are taken in the cooler months, fly’s get in the way of a good photo but you also get better light in winter.
