Ayers Rock, also referred to as Uluru, is a large arkose sandstone rock formation in the Northern Territory, central Australia.

Uluru is a part of the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park and is listed as a World Heritage Site. It is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural icons.

Uluru is an inselberg, literally “island mountain”, an isolated remnant left after the slow erosion of an original mountain range.

This image was captured on a track at a short distance from Uluru, just after the sun rose.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
