    This is breath taking…Ive never been there….yet

  • well I can guarantee you will be blown away… Uluru itself has the most amazing, incredibly tangible, multi-dimensionality about it, which is almost never conveyed in photographs (including mine, quite obviously)… and the colours, the space, the clear skies! it’s a truly extraordinary place, and I hope you get the chance to experience it sooner rather than later…
