Probably Australia’s most iconic natural landscape location, Uluru is a must visit for photographers. This image was made at dusk with the aid of very diffuse light. The cloud on the left side of the image was illuminated and positioned within the frame for just a few seconds, prior to moving out of the frame just as the light in the rock and cloud dimmed.

The contrast in this image was just within the range of the film used. As a result the detail in the bright clouds and darkest areas of the rock is minimal. Nevertheless, the mood of this image is quite evocative and I’ve glad to share it with you all, particularly as I’ve never shown it to anyone previously. I feel this image conveys my response to this iconic location during that most mysterious time at the edge of the day.
