Having seen so many photos and movies featuring Uluru I fully expected that I would be underwhelmed by one of our most famous natural wonders but nothing could be further from the truth. It is so surreal when you see it for the first time and the hugeness and majesty of the place takes your breath away. There is an energy about the area. It's imposing presence seems to be all around you. I was also surprised by all the crevices and caves as it looks so smooth from a distance. So I did what all other tourists do and had a piccie with "the rock".
It was the most beautiful place though and the colours of the cliff walls as the sun began to get low in the sky....bright orange and lush green trees and bushes growing in the gullies. So different from Uluru.
On a more serious note one of the things I found I love about out here is the light that comes just after the sun has set. It is absolutely beautiful....a layer of gorgeous blue with a layer of palest pink on top of that and then there is an eerie paler blue on top of that. Those of you who have been out this way will know what I mean. I have tried to capture it in a photo to show you but it doesn't do it justice. That is also a gorgeous full moon.
A big thank you to everyone who has left me such lovely comments about our trip....I was very concerned it would bore you all to tears but you have been so very interested and kind.
