Uluru Everchanging

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!

I hope you have enjoyed my Uluru posts! xx

Sunset Fading Fast at Uluru

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!

Enjoy xx

Australian Sunset: Part 4

Long Point, Coorong National Park, South Australia.

Quite a windy day, there was not a cloud in the sky for most of the day. Approaching sunset, two planes flew over high in the sky leaving vapour trails to catch the evening colours. It made for a pretty spectacular shot or four!

This is the 4th post in a series of 5 posts, of the sunsets I captured during my 8 week road trip in Southern Australia.

Australian Sunsets: Part 2

12 Apostles, Port Campbell National Park, Victoria Australia.

It was a cloudy day, but as the sun went down just before it hit the horizon, it squeezed its rays through the clouds and across the ocean into my lens…

 

This is the 2nd post in a series of 5 posts, taken on my 8 week road trip in Southern Australia.

Australian Sunsets: Part 1

Bruny Island Sunset, Tasmania.

Capturing the sunset this night was the reason we ventured down to the mud flats of ‘The Neck’ on Bruny Island, Tasmania. While waiting for the sunset, we saw the Solider Crabs captured in my post An Evening in The Life of: Scurrying Solider Crabs Making Sand Patterns.

As the sun went down, the tide rolled in, making a perfect scene for captured coloured reflections…

This is post 1 of 5 of the sunsets I captured on my 8 week road trip in Southern Australia.

Coral Sea Sunset

Sailing through the Coral Sea…

Sunsets can be most impressive when viewed at sea as the horizon appears endless against the ocean and there seem to always be clouds floating past!

In April this year, my mother and I cruised to some of the Pacific Islands. Our last port of call was Noumea. Unfortunately a cyclone prevented us from visiting the city and instead sent us hundreds of kilometers off course to avoid it.

However, the sunset that night was most impressive. I am sure the boat was heavily weighed down on the viewing side. This was the view from our balcony and this photo captures the entirety of the sunset…

This sunset was so spectacular due to the variation of colours and clouds on either side of the setting sun. Each side displayed its own unique beauty.
