The Olgas by Michael John

Kata Tjuta, also known as Mount Olga (or colloquially as The Olgas), are a group of large domed rock formations or bornhardts located southwest of Alice Springs.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta form the two major landmarks within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

The 36 domes are mainly composed of conglomerate, a sedimentary rock.

This image, captured near the Valley of the Winds walk, shows a close-up of the unusually shaped domes.

The Olgas, Northern Territory, Australia.

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.
