Photographer's Note

The iconic Uluru in central Australia, formerly known as Ayers Rock. I've blurred the sky. Taken with an old film analogue camera. I liked the warm cold colour contrast between the big red rock & the clear blue desert sky. Behind me is the carpark and old camping ground, closed many years ago & relocated to Yulara, 40 km away.

'Uluru' comes from the local Anangu people, and means "Earth Mother". From Wikitravel "The rock is a so-called monolith, i.e. a single piece of rock or a giant boulder, extending about 5 km beneath the desert plain and measuring 3.6 by 2.4 km at the surface. It rises 348 metres above the plain (862.5 metres above sea level) and has a circumference of 9.4 km."
