Artist's Description

Published in Leica Fotographic International Magazine

Published in Australian Traveller Magazine

*I recieved a phone call from a friend at Uluru who told me that it was
“Raining on The Rock”

I had only ever seen it with solid blue skies after numerous visits.

I said to my wife "put on your lippy, were heading for Uluru!

We left Melbourne a few hours later, the distance from Melbourne to Uluru/Ayers Rock is 1170 miles / 2000 kilometres, we stayed one night in Burra an old copper mining town and one night in Coober Pedy where most of the worlds Opals are mined. Coober Pedy is like the wild west !

We arrived at the Uluru / Kata Tjuta National Park around 3pm after driving through wonderful torrential rain with low visibility for hours.

I dropped my wife off at the resort and drove like crazy the next 14 kilometres deep into the area where Uluru sat so majestic, it is so large that from 10 kilometres out you feel like you could almost reach out and touch it.

The rain hadn’t eased , I was shooting with Agfa Ulta Proffesional film which was only 50 ISO, so very slow with exceptionally high colour saturation.
I didn’t think I would have enough light to take a shot!

As I drove closer the rain started to ease and would you believe the sun came out, I stopped my car grabbed my camera and looked through my viewfinder. I was using a Leica R8 with a 180mm lens. I was too close and had to walk backwards as I did I twisted my ankle!

I finally had it all in frame ..Click.. Gotcha..click..Gotcha, then,oh no, I was out of film, couldn’t believe it !!!

I hobbled back to the car, changed the film over, looked up and the cloud was gone!!!!

I didn’t see the results for 3 weeks, had to wait till I arrived back in Melbourne to take the film to the lab.

I hope you enjoy this image

!
!!Pastel red to burgundy and spinifex to gold,
We’ve just come out of the Mulga where the plains forever roll.
And Albert Namatjira has painted all the scenes,
And a shower has changed the lustre of our land.

And it’s raining on the Rock,
In a beautiful country,
And I’m proud to travel this big land,
As an Aborigine.
And it’s raining on the Rock

What an almighty sight to see,
And I’m wishing and I’m dreaming that you were here with me.

Everlasting daisies and a beautiful desert rose
Where does their beauty come from heaven knows.
I could ask the wedge-tail but he’s away too high,
I wonder if he understands it’s wonderful to fly.
It cannot be described with a picture,
The mesmerising colours of the Olgas.
Or the grandeur of the Rock
Uluru has power!

And it’s raining on the Rock,
In a beautiful country,
And I’m proud to travel this big land,
As an Aborigine.
And it’s raining on the Rock
What an almighty sight to see,
And I’m wishing and I’m dreaming that you were here with me.
