A familiar image with lots of information on the internet but what I didn't know is that photography is prohibited in certain areas around the base. These places are of special sacred and cultural significance to the local Anangu people, and are also male or female exclusive sites. The knowledge about these places is only passed down through the relevant sex and never to outsiders... intriguing.
The image was captured from the sunset viewing area. The iconic image is one of a glowing red monlith at sunset or sunrise. Alas not to be for me, overcast on both occasions! I've taken a wider view including the vegetation to give added colour and given a bit of 'grunge' filter to bring out the sky a bit.
Many thanks for all your comments on my 'Bondi Babes'. It was a bit of a candid grab shot and very unusual for me but I liked the result in an aesthetical sort of way. I also very much enjoyed the witty responses it invoked so thank you all.
