Ormiston Gorge

Australia, bush, colours, Nature, winter

An amazing place to be in the winter- to avoid the snakes and other dangerous animals- is Ormiston Gorge, a highlight, if I do say so myself, of the Lara Pinta Trail. (This is home to many mammals at this time of year, such as kangaroos etc.) We did go for a quick dip in the water and it was freezing! But interestingly not home at this time of year to any scary creatures. The beautiful burned rock reflects of the still cool water, also does the enormous gorge around the corner. The waters surface is dark and misleading, in contrast to the open rock faces, and it is almost as if it could be infinite in depth or super shallow.

Uluru’s Magic

Australia, bush, country, photography, Sunset

After walking the Larapinta Trail (about an hour flight from Alice Springs, NT, Australia), we moved on Uluru. Uluru was so beautifully grand, that when we flew into the airport we got an extensive areal view.

Anyway, after we landed we were taken to Longitude 131* and it was the most creative, luxury, unique hotel/ lodge I have ever had the pleasure to visit. Longitude’s vast view of Uluru and the surrounding bush made it a real highlight of the trip just to watch it from the comfort of your own room.

Yet, instead of just experiencing the magic it’s most well known for, from afar. We actually went for drinks to watch the legendary sunset. Here are some more photographs of the change Uluru experiences twice everyday!
