Ayers Rock Sunset


My third visit to this amazingly sacred place, however, this shot was a massive stroke of luck.  I’m not a fan of clear skies so in the morning I got up and saw an overcast and miserable day so I decided to drive to Kings Canyon. On the way back from the Canyon I saw the clouds starting to break apart and on the horizon line, I saw a little clear gap and thought, I’m going to the rock as I knew if the sun shone through that space I would get an amazing image. I was running out of time driving 190kmh and low on petrol, the light is starting to diminish quickly. I arrived at the sunset viewing point at which I was the only person there which is a miracle in itself. I set up my camera, turned it on took a quick test shot and bang, the sun came through. I snapped constantly adjusting my settings on the fly without looking at the screen as I took the 5th shot the sun disappeared. As I reviewed the images the biggest sigh of relief came over me. I love this image.
