Taken from a recent trip to Ayres Rock,
Eos 60d and Sigma 17-50 lens
Taken whilst having a lovely dinner in the desert.
The actual colour was far more vivid and impresive than the picture shows.
There is only one place to stay at Ayres rock and that is a resort with about five levels of accomadation. Its a huge resort with shops, schools and pubs. I decided to go for a walk outside the resort and follow a few tracks to get a feel for the place. I only had shorts and sandshoes on and this was a mistake as what looked like grass had little needle points and went right through my shoes. There are signs up on evey track telling you to drink water. I am used to strolling along tracks near the coast and thought it was all the same. You really have to prepare for walking out here with all the right gear. I decided drive around the rock after this and am pleased I did. if you wanted to walk you would have to start off very early and take all their warnings seriously
