Not the classic view of Ayers Rock or Uluru as it's now known, but one that gives a sense of scale. The summit is about 300 metres or 1,000 feet above the desert floor. This is the walking track to Kantju Pool, the only permanent water hole for miles around. I've added a little yellow, but it still seems a bit blue in parts. If you look carefully you'll spot erosion scars, caused by the infrequent rain that makes temporary waterfalls.

Hi Chris...
Nice shot with so nice colors...
Nice natural scene...

Hello Chris,

How nice to see you posting again.
This is such a famous, religious attraction but you have shown it in a way that makes it look different, softer, with the trees.
I like your use of the path and the inclusion of the people, for a sense of scale.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)
Someone on TE posted a shot showing the litter and grafitti that was on the site. I was very surprised and quite shocked that a few people could be so disrespectful.

Hi Chris,
Nice presentation and point of view of Ayers Rock,
beautiful colors and light,
nice trees and perpective of the way,
well composed too.

Hi Chris,

I'm happy to see you posting.

Great capture with nice view of the giant rock formation where you showed the scale of this giant place so nicely.
The sharpness and POV are well thought. Great color contrast and trees add to the beauty of the picture too.
Well done!

Best regards,

Hi Chris,
A very sharp landscape shot with a nice lead-in(out) path among those gloriously lighted trees.
The two ladies are giving life to this fantastically composed panorama.
The red rocks add splendor to the perspective.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Chris,

Nicely composed and the colors are are beautiful. The off-center placement of the road works well to lead the viewer into the shot and the two people add a nice human touch as well as a sense of scale. Sorry to hear you're still have problems with Gimp.

I'm really sad that you are posting just now and then ...
I'm missing your remote and exotic scenes.

best regards,

Hi Chris,

Good to see you posting again. One of these days I'd like to see in person the Ayers Rock. The visitors shown adequately provide scale and show how massive the rocks are. Nice blue sky, it is well exposed. Cheers


So glad you are thinking of a return trip to the Phil. I am not exactly sure where SEAir's terminal airport is located in Manila. I am guessing it to be around the old terminals. The last time I went to El Nido, I flew with island transvoyager inc. (ITI). ITI offers 3 flights daily from Manila direct to El Nido and back (morning, midday and afternoon). Manila-El Nido flights can be booked only 5 days before, while the return flight can be booked in advance through their GSA at Artcafe, email: [email protected] for reservations. One way Fare is PHP 6,750 per person. There is a 10kg weight restriction, incl. hand luggage.

Manila-El Nido bookings can be booked only at ITI directly:
» +63 (0) 2 851 56 74
» [email protected]
» www.islandtransvoyager.com

ITI is the charter airline of the more expensive El Nido Resorts and their guests can get advanced reservations confirmed. I did not stay at these expensive resorts. There are lots of very cheap accommodations when you get there.

Good luck and I am sure you will have a good time. And oh I am excited about your thoughts of getting a new cam. Nikon I hope.

Bonjour Chris
Très belle composition avec ces belles couleurs ocres de la roche.Le découpage délicat des arbres sur la roche m'évoque le pointillisme et j'adore ça!Bravo et TFS.Catherine

Hi Chris, how are you?
Great shot of this famous place. I like the way you've composed this, and the inclusion of the people add a good sense of scale. The colors are great as always too.

boa noite Chris
wonderful composition , with good colors and sharpness. The scale is very well seen and impressive.
um abraço

Hi Chris,

The trees are helping to frame the rock. The point of view is sending my eyes toward the rock which is giving depth to the composition. It is also allowing me to see the details and colors of tha section of Uluru. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Chris!
Amazing place, amazing landscape. Wonderful scene. Gorgeous women. Nice lightness and colours.
Well done!
