Weekly photo challenge: A Red Centre landscape

The heart of our land…


This week, it’s all about landscape photography….share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting.

Despite having travelled the world, I’m embarrassed to say that up until last year I had never been to the centre of Australia.  These are just a few of my favourite landscape shots from Uluru.  The sun on the rock gives it a variety of colours particularly at sunrise and sunset. It is really something that must be seen to be believed.

I wrote a few posts about our trip when I was doing my every day is an adventure series.  I used these and other photos to try to describe the beauty of this beautiful landscape but realise that no photo can ever do it justice!

      Thanks! It’s hard to decide but it is a ‘must see’ place if at all possible. Thanks for the visit 😊

    I’ve never been there Deb so don’t feel too bad. Great shots!

      You’ll get there one day I’m sure!! It took me well over 50 years to make it out there – such an amazing place. I couldn’t help but revisit these shots when I saw the theme of landscape. Thanks 🙂

    As far as red landscapes go, it doesn’t get more stunning than this. And I haven’t been either Deb, it’s next on the bucket list to go right up the centre to the Kimberleys. Beautiful photos.

      It’s amazing!! I’m so glad we went out there last year, it was such a brilliant trip. You’ll enjoy a trip up there Miriam, we will go back to see more of the area one day. I’d love to see the Kimberley area too one day.

        It sounds and looks so beautiful Deb. It’s somewhere I’ve wanted to go for a long time but of course it depends on lots of factors. Hopefully one day soon …

    I went in 1974 and was privileged to climb the rock. I think your photos are fantastic and give a good idea of the majesty of the rock and the red centre.

      Thanks for your comment Irene. It is a truly magnificent place and can’t really be captured. I walked and cycled around the rock rather than climb it.

    Wonderful photos of a wonderful place. It amazes me that so many Aussies have never visited.

      I know it’s amazing isn’t it? Probably because it’s on their doorstep that they plan to get around to it one day. I’m glad I can say I’ve been there now and I will go back too as there are many other places worth seeing out there. Thanks for your comment Ruth.

    So, apparently it changes colors as the sun sets, I heard. And that is what I saw here! Well done!

    Speccy shots Debbie, just beautiful. We were only talking about Uluru today and that we’d like to do the marathon there one day. Then I read a post about Uluru and the next post is yours about Uluru. Must be a sign.
