Pic of the Week - Sunrise, Ormiston Gorge, Central Australia

The terms 'Back of Burke', 'Outback' and 'Woop Woop' are Australian euphemisms for remoteness. And, outside of its major areas of population, Australia has more remoteness than most other countries.

Central Australia or the 'Red Centre' is home to many of Australia's grandest landscape icons. Uluru (Ayres Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Kings Canyon are all within a day's drive of Alice Springs, the regions largest town.

Now here's a little bit of local knowledge. There are many other locations in the region that provide fantastic opportunities for landscape photography. In fact I've yet to find anywhere else that provides such a unique and mesmerising mix of light and color. Though to experience it you'd want to be sitting quietly, at the edges of the day, in an area open to and able to reflect light. Very much about time and place, such sites offer a sanctuary from the stresses and strains of the modern world.
