Uluru before sunrise

We were up early to arrive in the dark at the sunrise viewing area. We weren't alone, there were plenty of people doing the same thing. There are seats and shelters and even wifi so you can post your pics online or call your daughter in Canada as I did just to say "look where I am". Between the trees on the left you get a glimpse of Kata Tjuta and in the foreground are lots of flowering grevilleas with that amazing red soil.

It seems to come alive when viewed on black.
The morning light is spectacular

I was fascinated by the description of the viewing area. I see why people go there for that view, though.

I was there so many years ago it was still called Ayers Rock and you could climb anywhere on it. We knew it was a significant place for the Aborigines, but it hadn't any of the protections it has today. It felt like a magical place even then. I've enjoyed your images of it today.

It does look super on black. Were you there when they had lots of rain?

@taffy The only time people are not allowed to climb is when it's too hot (which is often) but due to the spiritual significance to the aboriginals they ask that we don't climb. We didn't but 36 people have lost their life climbing it.

Gorgeous capture! Did it light up as the Sun rose? (We saw it at sunset a few years back - the transformation was incredible).

Is this New Zealand? I love the strange names of these places. Scenery which is worthwhile waking up early to. A beautiful shot to show it off.
