The rich red glow on the horizon, red and yellow dusk with the black of the night sky and in the presence of Kata Tjuta (Olgas).


Aboriginal colours: the rich glow on the horizon, red and yellow dusk with the black of the night sky and the ever presence of the Olgas.
I hiked in off the road for more than 1½ hours over the sand-dunes, looking to get closer and find a good vantage point to photograph the Olgas in its full splendour, with the sun going down behind it. The sun set and I was not as happy as I would liked to have been, so I waited longer, the moon had already risen and what a special place to wait. The glow in the perfectly clear night sky became more and more beautiful … ‘Dreamtime’.

By the time I had finished it was really dark, and difficult to make sure I hadn’t left anything behind. It was bright enough though to walk with the light of the moon, and every time we came to the top of a sand-dune we could see Ayers Rock in silhouette against the night sky. It was one of those special times, and I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn’t so tired and hungry. Finally we got back to the road but I was unsure if we had parked the car off to the left or to the right, we took the wrong way …
