We spent last week trying not to dehydrate in the Outback of Australia. Much of our time was taken up with hanging around Kata Tjuta and Uluru (commonly known as Ayers Rock). The most famous photos of Uluru are taken at sunrise or sunset when the light makes the sandstone into a beautiful glowing spectacle. After 6 months with no real rain to speak of, we arrived in the area just in time for some serious thunderstorms. Fortunately the rain poured overnight and left a lovely scattered cloud palate for one of our sunrise views.
