The Sun Bouncing off Kata Tjuta (The Olger’s)
I love walking in the wilderness, it might be the release of endorphins or it might be just the sense of new discovery in any event this is a great pastime which offers its own rewards. The trick of douse is not to get lost, always stay focused and carry lots of water. This view on my walk back to the car was not possible in the outward walk as the light had not changed enough to highlight the features of this grand landscape. It is the constantly changing light conditions that motivate me to capture this harsh beauty at what is the best time of the day, brining out its best features. From my point of View Kata Tjuta offers the landscape photographer much more diversity that Uluru which I find a bit flat and over commercialised.
Kata Tjuta, and also known as Mount Olga or just as The Olgas, are a group of large domed rock formations located about 360 km southwest of Alice Springs. The highest point, Mount Olga, is approximately 550 m above the surrounding area and is 200 m higher than Uluru. Kata Tjuta is my favourite mountain group in this locality, probably because none of the 36 domes look alike and exploring these domes is just a lot of fun.
