Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock. But its original name suits it best. The red heart of Australia. I hope you have a very big monitor to put this month’s calendar on, for once, bigger is truly better 🙂
While no image can truly replicate the unique sense of place and time you feel when you visit Uluru, I hope this gives you an inkling. Everything around Uluru looks flat and faded, but for the rock itself, which looms over the landscape like a T-rex in Jurassic Park.. During daytime, in the harsh Australian midday sun, it looks like a stern, grumpy old man. But at night and during early sunrise, it softly hints of a past long gone. I woke up way before sunrise for this photo, but this moment, when the sun came up and softly kissed the top of the bushes? Pure magic.
I hope to get back one day.
During my visit I also created a little timelapse of the sun going under behind the Kata Tjuta…
PS: That’s also me playing the piano on that track 😉
