On reflection, it makes considerable sense why I am more than two years behind on comprehensive photo processing.
Also some of my favourite photos ever. I was hardly aware the clouds were there when taking several of these.
In utmost naivety, we expected the red centre to be only rock and red dirt. But the whole desert is alive with desert oak and spinnifex (andm if you are lucky, quandong), and Uluṟu in particular attracts and shelters water, and thereby, herds of ghost gum and zebra finches.
The wettest and the greenest is in the near permanent shade of the Mutijulu waterhole. People defecated on the rock when climbing was allowed; Mutijulu won’t be safe for human consumption for 20 more years.
Some of these are among my favourite photos I’ve ever taken.
