Uluru (Ayers Rock)

The ducks have never been to the Rock (Ayers Rock) so how could I not do a 500 KM detour in 42 degree heat to snap some photos of the ducks seeing the Rock for the first time. This was my fifth visit and it still amazes me with its majesty.

Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory, central Australia. It lies 335 km (208 mi) south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs; 450 km (280 mi) by road. Uluru is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara, the Aboriginal people of the area. It has many springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings. Uluru is listed as a World Heritage Site. More on Wikipedia.
