Photographer's Note

This is one of the 36 domes of 'Katatjuta' formerly known as the Olgas, which in English translates as 'Many Heads'. This 'head' forms the right hand side of Walpa Gorge. (Walpa in English is 'wind') so named for the whistling sound the desert winds make rushing through the canyon at left. Taken in August 2010, with an analogue film camera using Fuji iso 200 film.

From Wiki:

"The highest point, Mount Olga, is 1,066 m (3,497 ft) above sea level, or approximately 546 m (1,791 ft) above the surrounding plain (198 m (650 ft) higher than Uluru)." Those are trees and a dry waterfall 1/3 of the way up.
