A wonderful viewpoint, Phill, showing virtually all of it. An almost magical place; I can understand why it was thought very special.

Lovely colour and soft light, giving a hint of its isolated position, and its contours.

(My youngest son went there years ago, I think it is now forbidden to walk on it...is that so??)

Thanks Joan...it really does have quite a presence, and it's easy to see why it's held in such high esteem, not just by the Aboriginals, but by anyone who sets eyes on it,
It's not yet forbidden to climb it, but is definately frowned upon...I confess to having had every intention of climbing it, but the possibility was screwed due to strong winds, and the route up was closed.

It does look lovely at sunset, Bev, though you're kind of robbed of any magic thanks to the other nine hundred and ninety nine people all talking at the top of their voices, and dozens of coaches, mini-buses and cars all joining in the 'special moment'!

but there would not have been that many visitors in those days

Or Ayers Rock, otherwise known as Uluru. :) I think the helicopter view is the best.

Not taken from another mail plane surely Phill? Let me guess...........hot air balloon? Hanglider? Helicopter? Jet pack?.................

However you got up there.............this is superb - the light on the sandstone is gorgeous. Such a magnificent and iconic natural landmark!!

Lol. A mere shimmey up an exceptionally tall tree, on this occasion, Keith!

After seeing so many shots over the years you know what to expect, but when you finally see Her for real, it all gets a bit tingly.

An excellent image making great use of the light, Phill. You've really captured the rich colour. It is a shame that places like this get spoilt by commercialism but I guess that's the way of the world. better that than banning visitors altogether (and losing the revenue!)
Have a great week!

This is one spot that photos simply do not do it justice, no matter how good the photo. It has to be seen in person. Although I am not a fan of helicopters and small planes, they are definitely a fine way to see it, as can be seen from your photo.
