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.

Northern Territory is ‘Outback Australia’ – as their number plates say :) The Northern Territory Flag consists of the Southern Cross, the Sturt’s Desert Rose and the red/orange colour of the Land (Ochre). This photograph was taken at Anzac Hill in Alice Springs looking directly up at the flagpole and with the use of my polariser I made the sky almost black – contrasting the colours of the flag. I made some small adjustments with the techniques used in my tutorial: https://www.scottphotographics.com/how-to-make-a-photograph-lomographic-in-gimp!

Early mornings in the Outback are cold, so cold that there is frost on the desert bushes (due to openness of the desert the heat from day escapes freely as the sun sets). Using a higher ISO I made the sunlight blow out the background and highlight this photograph creating whiter whites and drawing more attention to the foreground focal point – Grass shoot with frosty dew!

Ripples in sand and dunes formed by strong winds is the very first thing I associate with the Desert! There isn’t alot of dunes around the Alice Springs and surrounding regions, however you do see a few small patches on the highways between Uluru and Alice Springs. This is one of those, I used my polariser here (I did nearly everywhere) especially to cancel the glare out and allow the true red/orange colours to be captured, while darkening the blue sky. Not quite the same as the old Windows XP background, but the result I wanted :) !

I woke up fairly early (6:30 am) and went down to the Olgas viewing area to catch the sunrise. There were quite a few photographers there already, with their tripods setup in prime position (you have to get up pretty early to get the special corner edge of the platform :P), so I had to race around them with my camera capturing the different angles as the light changed over the Olgas and Uluru. In this photograph you can see the small silhouette of Uluru on the horizon (right), and the rising sun as the light spreads out across the frosty desert.
