Looking up at the enormous Rock is something you have to experience first-hand, before I visited Uluru I thought it was a reasonable large rock in the middle of Australia and I’d have no problem jogging up the side. I was completely wrong! Uluru is truly a massive rock emerging from the ground 348m high – only a third of its entire bulk! This is a panorama of three photographs stitched in Photoshop and I was using my polariser, which is such a necessity when photographing out in the Red Centre as it eliminates the glare and saturates the blues.

Kings Canyon was beautiful – I made it there at around sunset, greeted by the 270m sandstone chasms – brilliantly lit up by the dropping sun, which produced a golden fringe around the canyon forest. Heading back from the main lookout I side tracked into the river bed a little and this pool of water was perfectly placed for me to capture the reflections and canyon walls! I had to do a free-hand panorama to include both the reflections and orange sandstone, I later stitched the nineteen photographs together in Photoshop, creating this vertical panorama!
