Blue Sky / Red Rock

The centre of Australia is famous for its red rocks and sand.  Here you can see why.  These are all detail shots of Uluru (the aboriginal name for Ayers Rock)

Very brief post today.




A classic sky watch activity at Uluru is to watch the sun set on the rock.  This is a link to a time lapse video H and I made of a sunset.  The real time is about 1 hour and 10 minutes.  Enjoy.

You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday.

Sooo sorry about your ankle. Hope you have had it professionally put to rights. Best not to generate arthritis when you are eighty.To me the Olgas have very mystical feel to them, like touching on an unremembered dream.

Wow, beautiful contrasts with the blue sky and red rocks. I especially love the little bushes growing out of the cracks. Interesting that they can grow in such a barren place. The time lapse is awesome ... how do you do that? I have so many beautiful sunrises right out my back windows ... they would make wonderful time lapse, but haven't a clue how to do it. Enjoyed this, Stewart. Have a great rest of your week.

Beautiful shots, and reminds me a little of the rocks in Joshua Tree.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such an intensely blue sky really highlights the red of the rock! Beautiful photos!

Arija said...

Thanks for letting me know. Disguise it as a peg, the kids should enjoy you playing Long John Silver.
