Every effort on this Gallery site has been made to accurately represent the vibrant colours of Sam’s images. Due to differences in computer screens and certain other variations, the images here should only to be taken as a guide. Obviously, the colour and sharpness of a finished print are far superior to what can be presented on a small screen.
Ayers Rock Sunset
$400.00 – $2,500.00
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.
