Uluru (Ayers Rock) at Sunset NT

 We are now home, it's easier to show the photos of our 3 months journey in more detail.

There is just something about Uluru (Ayers Rock) especially at sunset.  The colours change as the sun begins to set.  It's a long journey to see it, but worth it for me.
We see the changing colours of the rock plus the sky.

My post whilst travelling is [here]

I'm showing the photos from the end of sunset to the beginning.

The rock is a 863 meters (2,831 ft) high. 



The sun has set.






The beginning of sunset above.


The above photo was taken not that long before sunset began, it's where I stood till the sunset ended.

  3. Perfect picture. Sometimes I wonder if we would go to Australia if we should also visit Ayers Rock. Is it worth the drive?

    1. Thanks.
      For me and many it's certainly worth it. There are planes that fly there...
      If you drive, always have water, always have a reliable vehicle, always make sure you fill your car up with petrol/diesel when available, always have a mobile phone to carry with you.
      Don't drive in the night, dawn or dusk.....the unwritten rules of Australia :)

    1. It's a strange feeling standing and watching, and capturing what you see in the camera that hopefully I will have forever..

    1. So much difference. To watch the change, the photos in between make it even more interesting, however the selection I have shown shows the vast difference...
