Now while Kata Tjuta or The Olgas are not really a secret, they do seem to have a lower public profile than Uluru. And in many ways I actually find them more interesting. The pathways lead between the cliffs, so that you feel as though you are inside the mountain rather than outside of it. There are surprising views and unexpected stretches of water as well.
I loved the place the first time I saw it - and return visits have not changed that opinion.
So here are some shots of Kata Tjuta.
As you can see the whole structure of Kata Tjuta is more complex that Uluru - and I loved the dark and light of these images.
This last shot is an attempt to show the size of the places in central Australia - you can see Uluru (just) reflected in the wing mirror and Kata Tjuta in the distance. Its about a 50km trip from one to the other, but in central Australia that means they are basically next door to each other!
All of these images will look a lot better if you click on them to see a larger version.
You can find more images from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
PS: sorry about the long sequence of shots from this trip - the ankle is getting better, but I'm not really getting may photo opportunities as I limp around on one leg!!
