    Uluru and surrounds

    After 7 days on a Ken Duncan tour I ended up with 771 photos and then spent a good while culling them down to 43 which are now printed in a photobook. Below are some of these shots. My absolute best out of the whole trip I put in a recent Open comp and won which was a nice reward for my efforts.

    Ellery Creek Crossing at dawn


    Ormiston Gorge - Loved the contrasting rocks


    Ormiston Gorge


    Aerial shot of Glen Helen - my first ride in a helicopter


    Another shot over Glen Helen Gorge - the rock formations were amazing


    Haasts Bluff at sunrise


    Sunset over Glen Helen


    Kata Tjuta at sunset - the glow lasted only 60 secs


    Uluru at dusk


    A foggy dawn view of Kata Tjuta

    A part of Australia showing its best Helen Claire, and wondering why you are putting them on here, you should be keeping them for future Comps.
    Though Thanks for Sharing and I hope you enjoyed your first Helicopter ride

    I shoot with Canon And Olympus Cameras

    Was last night that I suggested to my better half the a trip to Uluru would be nice. She ignored me as usual.
    So thanks for increasing my frustration Helen.
    I'm guessing you're happy you did this tour.
    You have some wonderful photos and I'd guess there's a couple more in that photobook we haven't seen that might turn into comp entries.

    Well my absolute best was put in a recent comp which I won so putting the others in would be a bit of overkill.

    Well if you show her the pics they might be enough to entice her. Lets hope.

    Yes very happy. It was an unexpected win as I got some back-pay out of the blue as my employer changed my pay award and it was backdated. Had my eye on this tour for a while so when the opportunity presented itself I jumped at the chance. The weather was not the best. Lots of overcast skies and rain and of course red mud as a result but we did get some blue skies and sunshine towards the end.

    Yes have 33 more

    Another set of nice postcard images. Competition worthy indeed.

    Why would it be a bit of overkill Helen-Claire, as none of these images above look like that Winning Entry of yours.
    I see it as good Competition for the other Members after all isn't that what Competitions are for ?

    Love the contrast in No 2, very effective foreground to background, what a beautiful rugged & colourful outback we have.

    Stunning series of shots, each one beautiful and the colours are gorgeous. You'd have to be happy with the tour if you come home with shots like these.
