Another film shot taken in 2010. This is one view along the walking track to Valley of the Winds. There are 36 of these big domes in Kata Tjuta, and some of them are over 1000 feet above the surrounding valley floor. Those are trees in the bg. They can survive with run-off from the rock after infrequent rain storms, & the partial shade, but away from the domes it is just too hot & arid with no shade, as evidenced in the fg. Summer temperatures here can reach over 50c.

Hi Chris, great image of this spectacular landscape. Contrast between the red earth and deep blue sky works well, and I like the inclusion of the gravel in the FG. Would have been interesting to see a person in the image to get an idea of the scale. Cheers, Steve

Another spectacular image of this valley. I like the loose gravel in the foreground. I see a nice color contrast between the red and the blue. The green vegetation on the red soil grab some attention too.

Truly a high quality picture with a lovely subject.

Nice composition, splendid colors too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Chris - Another landscape I would love to see in the flesh. The domes must be really impressive and you have shown off this example well. Your colours are so "Namibian" but the landscape different. Excellent and very interesting. Warm regards Rosemary

It is a landscape that I would like to visit Australia. It is truly spectacular. The colors of the rocks and sky are beautiful. Vegetation that survives here is an interesting site. Excellent quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Very beautiful image. Great depth and colors. Very well done.
pierrefonds (70515) 2012-03-08 6:18
The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the dome and of the cliff. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Wow Chris, Some dome hey, you certainly get the scale after reading your note about the trees. Great Pov, super colours, well managed of the harsh light. A rugged hot savannah it looks. Tfs, Cheers Iain.
bayno (18344) 2012-03-08 22:46
by the proportions of trees with this strange rocky massif is bigger than it looks, exceptional color rendering, excellent low POV, unique landscape...
have a good day...
jurek1951 (42196) 2012-03-08 23:29
this is a fantastic landscap photo. the color and the composition of the picture was successfull.
emka (105648) 2012-03-08 23:30
Again, it looks like the photo from Utah. I haven't realized that one can encounter such landscapes in Australia. But probably it is difficult to reach these places, specially when it is so hot! Fantastic shot of this amazing place. Fabulous colours.
Warm regards Malgo

Intriguing structures from your home country! The domes are certainly fascinating, weather by the wind into smooth shapes. I liked your low POV & inclusion of the ample FG. I would like to believe that Uluru is created by the same forces, in the same action, only bigger in size
dkmurphys (63795) 2012-03-09 1:00
A picturesque natural capture. I like the colors and the textures.
Well catch, have a nice day.
jemaflor (102297) 2012-03-09 2:48
Beautiful color and contrast between warm tones and blue sky, well framed with this fg, impressive rock with this original form.
delpeoples (59684) 2012-03-09 3:45
Another stunning photo from Kata Tjuta. You certainly seem to be impressing Malgo too! Excellent low POV, wonderful rich colours and impressive light management in what seem to be harsh conditions.
Have a great weekend'
npecanhuk (77773) 2012-03-09 5:22
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and simple composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

It has been a while since I see your wonderful film shot. The colors and details are so natural and I am totally addicted to it. Nice view of an Australian outback and thanks for sharing.

Ciao Chris, fascinating landscape with fantastic warm colors, lovely composition with great rock, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a great week end, ciao Silvio

nul doute que l'Australie soit une terre interssante pour les géologues mais aussi les photographes. On y voit des formation rocheuses et sous des couleurs comme nulle part ailleurs.
Bon exemple ici avec cette photo de bonne facture technique.
batalay (40203) 2012-03-09 21:56
Until I read the explanation of the vegetation being trees, I thought that what were looking at was a dome 10-20 feet height. I wonder what the geologic process was that created so many massive domes. Also what are those dark shapes, on the cliff? Are they natural formations or caves carved out by the Aborigines?
siolaw (38292) 2012-03-10 2:17
A special site with amazing red earth colour contrasting strongly with the deep blue sky.
Excellent framing and compo.
Good general quality.
wolf38 (31296) 2012-03-10 9:39
Hello Chris. The earthy Australian scenery is really something special. The landscape is wild and yet fascinating beauty. In particular, the red rock formations are impressive. Fine composition, strong color, the best light. Well done. Worth seeing. Rgds wolfgang.
