This is one of my favourite panoramas of the trip, because it includes everything about the desert outback of Australia. I woke up early to make it to the Olgas lookout, unfortunately not as early as the campers that had taken the prime position on the corner, but I managed to get this wide angle panorama of The Olgas/Kata Tjuta to the left and Ayers Rock/Uluru very faint on the horizon to the right of the Sun. I uncovered some of the detail in the shadows with Camera Raw Photoshop and stitched the fifteen photographs in jpeg format – my computer couldn’t handle the huge raw files of 206mb!

Alice Springs was named after the waterhole ‘Alice Spring’ that was named after the wife of Sir Charles Todd (the Postmaster – as the town was originally a Telegraph Station). This photograph is a stitched panorama of two images – my polariser was able emphasise the reflections on the waters surface and create a more vibrant look to the overall photo.

Uluru is one of the most photographed and visited attractions in Australia, so you’ve probably seen this type of photograph alot!

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.
