Uluru Sunset reveals shapes and textures in the landscape Hasselblad 503cw camera and Hasselblad 50mm f4 Distagon FEL T lens with Kodak Professional Ektachrome 100VS film

Surely one of Australia’s most iconic natural attractions, the Uluru/Kata Tjuta National Park offers the visitor a range of fantastic locations for landscape photography. The above image was made from the car park where visitors often find themselves viewing the changing colors of the rock either side of sunset.

The low angled sun, skimming across the landscape, highlights the textural qualities of the foreground grasses and looming clouds as well as bringing out the shape of the rock. These qualities have been further enhanced through a black-and-white rendering.

I made this image towards the end of a long day. I was up well before sunrise to photograph the rock. I then undertook the long walk around Uluru, which was great fun and provided numerous images with which I remain happy to this day. Following an afternoon exploration through the Valley of the Winds at nearby Kata Tjuta I returned to the final location of the day where this image was made.

If you haven’t already had the opportunity I can certainly recommend a few days at Uluru/Kata Tjuta National Park. I’ve been fortunate to have journeyed there on three occasions and look forward to another visit in the not too distant future.
