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!
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!
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.
