Uluru (Ayers Rock)

A sunset view of this Australian icon

Walking at Uluru

A friend at the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock). Out of respect to the Aboriginal culture we did NOT climb Uluru and the image is not of my friend climbing Uluru but merely at the base of it allowed by the park and the Aboriginal culture and where photography was also allowed. This is as far as he went. I included my friend in the image to give scale to the immenseness of this famous icon in Australia. The wide angle lens makes him look farther away than he really is.
