2 photos for Tuesday. Ayers Rock at sunrise. Taken from the "sunset viewing area". This one is taken after sunrise.

..... also known as Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory, central Australia. It lies 335 km (208 mi) south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs, 450 km (280 mi) by road. Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to a plethora of springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings. Uluru is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I thought I would add another sunset image of the majestic, spectacular Uluru to the millions out there. Although the colour might look unreal, it really does seem to "glow" just before the shadows begin to creep up the side. I've decided that it's a combination of very red light, very red rock and great contrast when all but the rock is in direct sunlight. I also think that orange might be a better description than red.... but that might just be my strange perception...

Watching the sun rise at the back of the "rock".

 

I have decided to make this image available to buy as a card or a laminated, mounted or framed print. See here

I liked the starkness of the dead trees set in a sea of spinifex grass against the dark mass of Uluru.

Uluru Rock in Australia. Magic around every bend!

My latest blog updates are here and here. Have a great week all.

Il Parco Nazionale Uluru-Kata Tjuta si trova nel territori del Nord australiano e comprende il famoso monolito conosciuto come Ayers Rock. Nel 1985 è stato riconsegnato formalmenteai suoi proprietari tradizionali, gli aborogeni Anangu, che lo gestiscono congiuntamente al Governo Australiano.

Nel 1977 il parco è stato dichiarato riserva della biosfera e nel 1987 è stato inserito nell'elenco dei Patrimoni dell'umanità dell'UNESCO

Uluru (Ayers Rock) at sunset time.

 

I am fully aware that millions of photos of this Australian landmark have already been taken. And of course many of them are more spectacular than this one. But nevertheless, it is a great experience to travel to this place and wait for the sunset (of course there a lot of other people doing the same, one is definitely not alone). It was a hot evening with clear sky and a wonderful sunset.

 

Many thanks for your visits / comments / faves!

Things were looking good about 30 minutes before sunset, but clouds are gathering to the west, and these may block the play of light on the rock that we've all paid three arms and as many legs to see. At this point no amount of wine and nibbles can easy my anxiety. I came here years ago with a 2 Mp camera, the sunset display was awesome, but the photos were rubbish. Now I'm back looking to take the ultimate shots. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territories, Australia - here we were in the parking lot from where Mala Walk starts (see the map below).

The park covers 1326 square kilometers and includes the world-renowned sandstone monolith Uluru or Ayers Rock and, 40 kilometres to its west, Kata Tjuta or Mount Olga. It is listed with UNESCO World Heritage sites.

 

'Anangu are the traditional Aboriginal owners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. They believe that their culture was created at the beginning of time by ancestral beings. Uluru and Kata Tjuta provide physical evidence of feats performed during the creation period. They often lead walking tours to inform visitors about the local flora and fauna, bush foods and the Aboriginal Dreamtime stories of the area.' (Wikipedia)

The sun rises over Uluru, or Ayer's Rock. It is located in central Australia, and is about 1100 feet high, and about 6 miles around. We had a beautiful walk around it in the early morning, starting before the sun came up.

Around this rock is 12 kms.

View from Mutitjula waterhole. I would never climb Uluru, out of respect. This was taken from the base and is a familiar scene to many I'm sure - just my take on it.

Northern Territory

This was taken last year. Uluru is spectacular to see!!

The suns rays just appearing over the awesome and majestic red rock that is Uluru. The Spinifex grass in the foreground moves like water in the breeze, beautiful.

On a 2.00am flight from Singapore I woke up somewhere over Australia and just happened to look out the window and there it was, the largest monolith in the world, bathed in the morning sun. A quick grab for the camera and managed to get this shot.

Ayers Rock is one of the most impressive landmarks in Australia. A huge chunk of sandstone and a ‘true’ monolith, it resides in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, down towards the southwest corner of the Northern Territory and close to the geographic centre of Australia.

Uluru shortly after sunset, with the moon above. I used flash to illuminate the foreground a bit. It looks a bit artificial, but it's better than just being black.

Back from 3 weeks of wonderful family holidays in Australia with many pictures in stock. 3 weeks with a big Wow everyday. :-)

I just picked up a classic one to begin a long period of processing and uploading.

I hope you will enjoy what is following.

I missed you ;-))

also known as Ayers Rock (-Australia-)

 

Der Uluṟu [uluɹu], auch Ayers Rock, ist ein an der Oberfläche befindlicher Teil einer großen unterirdischen Gesteinsschicht in der zentralaustralischen Wüste. Er befindet sich in einem 170.000 km² großen Sedimentbecken, dem Amadeus-Becken, und gehört politisch zum australischen Bundesstaat Northern Territory.

 

Auf Grund seiner spirituellen Relevanz für die Traumzeit-Erzählungen gilt er den lokalen Aborigines, den Anangu, als Heiliger Berg. Der Uluṟu ist zudem eines der bekanntesten Wahrzeichen Australiens und wird jährlich von zahlreichen Touristen besucht.

 

Der einheimische Name Uluṟu wurde bis in die 1990er Jahre ausschließlich von den Aborigines verwendet, außerhalb Australiens war die von Europäern vergebene Bezeichnung Ayers Rock üblich.

Uluru (English pronunciation: /ˌuːluːˈruː/), also known as Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory, central Australia. It lies 335 km (208 mi) south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs, 450 km (280 mi) by road. Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

Ayers Rock, Uluru-Kata National Park, Northern Territory, Australia.

 

Uluru is one of Australia's most recognisable natural landmarks. The sandstone formation stands 348 m (1,142 ft) high, rising 863 m (2,831 ft) above sea level with most of its bulk lying underground, and has a total circumference of 9.4 km (5.8 mi).[5] Both Uluru and the nearby Kata Tjuta formation have great cultural significance for the Aṉangu people, the traditional inhabitants of the area, who lead walking tours to inform visitors about the local flora and fauna, bush foods and the Aboriginal dreamtime stories of the area.

 

Uluru is notable for appearing to change colour at different times of the day and year, most notably when it glows red at dawn and sunset. – Wikipedia

Uluru national park in Australia

Uluru (Ayer's Rock), Northern Territories of Australia.

 

'In 1987, Uluru National Park was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage natural property. In 1993 the official name of the Park changed to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and the following year it was listed as a World Heritage cultural landscape.

 

This dual World Heritage-listing means that it is one of the few properties in the world that is internationally recognised for both its natural and cultural values and represents years of work by Anangu to assert their role as custodians of their traditional lands.

 

This international recognition is a significant victory for Anangu as it confirms the validity of Tjukurpa as being the primary tool for looking after country'. (Wikipedia)

  

Taken at sunrise, although there was no Sun visible!

Uluru at Sunset. This is an image I took a couple of years ago which inspired the Adventures in Oz journey.
