Uluru is one of the most photographed and visited attractions in Australia, so you’ve probably seen this type of photograph alot! If you’d like to see more photographs from my trip to the RED CENTRE checkout my article here: http://www.scottphotographics.com/the-red-centre-outback-northern-territory-australia :) !
At the end of last month I flew to Alice Springs and explored the surroundings of Central Australia over an extended weekend. It was an unbelievable trip and the experience of almost pure Outback was so unfamiliar/unique to me that I found it was amazing how Australia offers such a dynamic range of landscapes and culture from cities to the vast outback. I documented my trip visually as you’ll see as you scroll down – although some of these images are very revealing of Central Australia it is still nothing compared to being there, however with the use of panoramic photographs I hope it offers a better representation of the broad spacious lands that I experienced.

Kata Tjuta is an amazing formation of rocks consisting of several large sandstone domes. This a panoramic view of the main domes stitched in Photoshop made up of six photographs, and taken minutes after sunrise so the lighting was good.

Kings Canyon cliff walls stand tall some 300m and late in the day is beautifully illuminated by the sun creating a golden warm colour. This is a panorama of nine photographs taken hand-held from the main lookout in the riverbed, I touched up the shadows with Photoshop to reveal more detail.

Another photo from the top of Ayers Rock/Uluru showing the deep holes eroded over time due to wind and rain. It is a panorama of only three photographs stitched together, and I managed to get Kata Tjuta in the distance.
