Photo Friday: Uluru at Sunset

Photo Friday: Uluru at Sunset

I love rummaging through the free photo organising and editing software Picasa where I keep all my travel photos. My only wish is that digital photography had been invented back in 1986 when I first started travelling alone. I’d love to be able to share some of those old travel photos including classics like me on top of the Twin Towers in New York. Sadly that’s one photo that can never be reproduced now.

But there’s no point dwelling on the past and wishing we could change it, all we can do is look at the present and be grateful for what we have right now.

And I am supremely grateful for my visit to Uluru a few years ago with Tourism NT and the memories. The rock, the light and the atmosphere were sublime. Here’s one of my favourite photos which was taken at sunset.

If you’re thinking of visiting Uluru but are worried about the expense and time getting there check out Is Uluru worth the trip?

If you’d like to see more photos before you decide I devoted a whole post to Uluru sunrise and sunset photos and another to 15 Things to Know Before Riding a Camel that I Learnt on an Uluru Sunrise Tour but this sunset shot stands out.

Here’s to you Uluru!

I am very grateful for digital cameras and digital photography. There’s nothing like a great photo to bring back all those happy travel memories is there?

    Wouldn’t it be fabulous to still have all those old photos to relive your travel memories. Uluru at sunset is beautiful!

    I so agree … we did so much travelling to some amazing places when we had to choose between whether we could afford to buy a 12 or 36 print film, and whether or not we had anough money to have the pics developed – then 50% of them were terrible anyway! Love Uluru, at any time, and would love to revisit too.

      Hi Johanna,

      Oh I’d forgotten about the expense! And yes, most of my pics were terrible too but it’s still good to get a glimpse into the past.

  3. I’m in the process of digitising very old family slides… maybe after that I will do the bazillions I took in my 20s… I’d love to look at my own old photos of Uluru from 1989. It’s a special spot.

    Thank you for this reminder – this is the 3rd time I’m living in Australia and determined this time around to finally visit Uluru!
