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!

Hawaii Sunsets

Beach, Sunset, Surf

If any Hawaiian locals are reading I sincerely apologise for taking the most cliché sunset photo. But I will have to defend myself, because as the soft pink and orange light pours onto the top of the turquoise water, my heart melts. I can’t even begin to describe how amazed I am at the colours exhibited in these legendary sunsets.

I did however, travel up the island further in my holiday with my board ready to hit the mean Pipeline and Waimea bay waves. Yet when I got there it seemed I was doomed to the fact that massive sets of shore- ies (big waves breaking on the shore line) were blocking my only entrance. Luckily after getting jumped on my only five waves my attempts were met with a beautiful surf out in Waimea Bay.

Here’s me taking a Go Pro shot of probably my third attempt of entering the water and in the corner and man who had just successfully duck dived through the wave- beginners luck if you ask me.
