A few images from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon – I have been challenged by one of my daughters to show her only my BEST 10 PHOTOS when I get home – this is out of around 3000 that I have taken during the last 3 months of my rambles! So I will eventually be posting the ones I’ve chosen but it will take me several weeks to sort through them!
Meantime here are a few images from the last couple of weeks in the heart of Australia (you can click on the image to enlarge them) – It is truly magnificent country and I hope to return one day to ramble further north in Broome, Darwin and Cairns – so much to see here and the distances are huge!
First stop from Alice Springs was the Camel Farm!
I was getting excited but NO it’s not Ayers Rock/Uluru but Mount Conner. It’s a long and lonely road – just under 500 kilometres!
Sunset at Uluru – I took a series of about 30 photos while the sun was setting!
It’s a very spiritual place and difficult to do it justice with photographs
Around the base walk of the rock I came across this marvellous piece of burn wood! I thought it was a sculpture at first but it was completely natural.
The Olgas or Kata Tjuta (the aborginal name) are every bit as awe inspiring as Uluru
Finally a 6 kilometre walk around the rim of Kings Canyon – this is where they filmed the final desert scene in the movie ‘Priscilla Queen of the Desert’ – and yes I climbed all those steps and stood on the top shouting into the canyon below – a fantastic echo!
Now I’m back in Sydney for my last few days here in Australia – I fly back to the UK on Monday – I’m really looking forward to being back home again now!
