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.

Hi Dave, nice shot of Ayes Rock. The reason for the restriction on close up's is that the Aboriginal people own it now. If you want to see a close up look
at my last page and I have a picture there and the Sydney Bridge. Well done. WesternRed.

Another good shot Dave. Good foreground interest with the two green bushes leading your eye diagonally to the left of Ayes Rock before allowing you to explore the rest of the image Wink Cor blimey old lad, that wasn't my normal tablet I've just taken. Nice shot Dave.

Excellent shot here Dave, even though it is in the distants this still has impact especially with all the native
shrubs around. It is a sacred place to the Aborigines as it has a big part in the 'Dreamtime'…
Look forward to lots more Aussie photos' and surprised to got as far as Uluru, quite a trek……….Jocelia

Always an impressive sight in the midst of this semi desert landscape: I had no idea there were restrictions on photography in the way you describe.
This more distant view does set it in the context of the area so well.

I don't think I've ever seen this wonderful lanscape in quite this way before and I love the fact you have included the plant life and a sky which adds to the magic and vastness of the landscape.
