Theay are all great but my favorite is the last one titled sunset because of the rust colored rocks.

Beautiful landscapes Runmonty. I feel slack for never have made it to so much of our outback. Love that last one.

Nice set RM- hope to see more as well. What a Fab spot to shoot!

Beautiful RM, and especially like the intensity in the last two. Amazing colours.

Thanks Jason, Jude, AntZ and Marko

I feel slack for never have made it to so much of our outback.

I was the same, having traveled around the world and most places of Australia, I had never been to the NT. It certainly is a beautiful place with heaps to see.

What a Fab spot to shoot!

It sure was, although it would have been nice to have a bit more time to contemplate and compose. The distances are so vast we didn't have the luxury of taking our time and lingering (or waiting for the nice light) if we were to get everywhere we had to. Also, as I travelling with the family I was very conscious of keeping everyone happy and not creating boredom for everyone else while they waited for me to indulge my photographic hobby.

Thanks HBG, you must have posted while I was composing my previous response, so sorry for not including you in the above. Yes the colours in the area are amazing, they almost look unnatural in photos, but they pretty true to life. You will see more when I get around to posting Kings Canyon, Uluru (Ayers Rock), and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)
