Sunrise at Uluru is not to be missed
One of the best places to see the sunrise, in my humble opinion, is at Uluru in Australia’s Red Centre.
I can’t believe it’s nearly 5 years since we (finally) got to see Uluru and the Red Centre!
After travel restrictions are lifted, and until international travel is allowed, we are being encouraged to see our own ‘backyard’. I can’t recommend seeing Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park highly enough.
Every day we were there we managed to capture sunrise and sunset from different viewing locations. It was so worth getting up early for! These are a few of my favourite shots.
Why are the colours so amazing?
Apparently the colour changes of Uluru result from the filtering effect of the earth’s atmosphere on the sun’s rays. Isn’t that cool?
The colours were fabulous each and every time.
Our meeting with a mad Englishman at Uluru
On our final morning at Uluru, we met this mad Englishman while waiting for the sun to rise at Uluru!
He hopped out of his car with thongs (flip flops) on his feet, board shorts on, a towel wrapped around his shoulders and a cloth cap on his head…and he had a can of XXXX beer in his hand!
Remember that it was before 7.30am!
It was a cold morning and he was obviously feeling a bit chilled, as the towel wrapped around his shoulders indicated.
We passed morning pleasantries, as you do in these places, and he promptly explained that it was a longtime dream of his to drink a can of beer, at sunrise, at Uluru.
He could now tick it off his bucket list!
On top of that he had just driven across the Nullabor, not a walk in the park by any stretch of the imagination! They had car troubles along the way requiring him to hitch a lift on a road train (long massive trucks). He just thought it was all a great adventure…as I’m sure it was!
We chatted while the sun rose, with Uluru coming alive in the daylight, and then we went our separate ways with a cheery wave out the window.
Just a few random thoughts and photos for Sunday Stills this week.
Everything starts with a sunrise but it’s what we do before it sets that matters.K Mcgraw
