Uluru by night by godintraining Uluru by night by godintraining
This is part of a series of nocturnal shots in the Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park, in central Australia.

Uluru is probably the most known icon of all Australia, a link from the aboriginal and the western culture. Five hundred thousand people from all over the world come every year to see and to take pictures during one of its famous sunsets.

This sacred mountain has been a meeting place for thousand of years. Aboriginal people from different parts of the country and with different languages and dialects used to come here to take part to their ritual ceremonies.
This is still a meeting place for people of different culture and languages from all over the world. Uluru still save its value in the world. A very busy piece of desert.

wow, I really miss Uluru. Its such a beautiful landmark, one I am proud of. I really have to go back up there one day, been three times and I am still inspired by its beauty and size. You have inspired me to upload my shots, or though not as amazing as yours is.

I understand what you mean... I've been there three hundred times (I work in the area) and still it doesn't bore me... I'm going to have a look to your gallery! ;)

Your so lucky to see it every day. I'd love to wake up to Uluru every day and watch the sunset every night. Don't look yet, they arn't up yet, will be tomorrow hopefully.

I love this shot, just a perfect capture of the emotion around the place. In regard to heeeeman's wonky comment, i think wonky describes most of the locals pretty well, so it really fits in with this photo.

Man, this is an awesome photo. (haha.. for some reason the sky makes me think of lion king) I like the sort of subtlety in the contrast(if that makes sense) How did you get the stars to show up so well?

I also like that you put some information about the place in your comment, that's pretty interesting. I'd like to be able to go to Australia someday.

Just a little trick! When you take a long exposure picture of the stars always point the north in the northern hemisphere and south in the southern hemisphere. The movement of the stars is slower and you can avoid that they appear too blurred ;)

hmm, that's an interesting trick. I'll have to try it sometime.
