Australia - Uluru - Kata Tjutu
Formerly known as Ayers Rock the dramatic rise of Uluru from the desert landscape is something that has to be seen to appreciate. And for goodness sake there's no need to climb the rock to enjoy it. As beautiful as the rock might be to photograph, no photo can do justice to the experience. This is a place that has energy, you feel it. Surrounding the monolith is a precious landscape of red sands, desert flowers and wild creatures. Little wonder that Uluru is a place of great significance to the indigenous people of the region.
If you're heading to Uluru you might like to read this guide to photography in the park..

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
