As Uluru is a sacred Aboriginal site, when visiting the National Park you need to keep to designated roads and photo bays. Some photographers might be a little bit frustrated by this as their ability to find a new angle is quite limited. However the way the light changes on the rock is simply incredible as we have seen over the last few posts.
Here is a compilation of how the light can change over a matter an 2 hours!
On our last night at Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park I was feeling pretty tired and had a bunch of shots of Uluru. As Matt ventured out to take photos I stayed in our campervan parked on the side of the road. This night however, the light looked different. I decided to set up my tripod next to the door of the van so I could continue to lie on the bed, warm in my sleeping bag!
This time I took some longer star trails just after sunset. I am glad I did – Uluru looked just magic.
As the sun approaches the horizon a brilliant red is painted on Uluru. There is only a small window each night when the red looks this good! It occurs when the foreground is completely in shadow. It is quite the sight to watch the shadows take over the rock!
This shot was taken at the Uluru sunset bay with about 100 plus other people all crowded into this one area. You would never imagine that there were so many eyes witnessing its beauty from this image. It makes me feel like I am the only one there!
