Uluru Sunset - Ayers Rock, Central Australia
Painting - Uluru Sunset - Ayers Rock, Central Australia

About this Painting

My family and I visited Uluru (Ayers Rock) in December 2000, as part of a wonderful vacation of Australia. It is one of the largest monoliths in the world. Made of arkosic sandstone, Uluru rises 1,142 ft (348 metres) above the desert floor and has a circumference of 5.9 miles (9.4 kilometres).

We were staying in nearby Ayers Rock Resort and were taken to a viewpoint south of the rock to see the sunset, accompanied by some nice sparkling wine and followed by dinner. I took a lot of photographs as the sun set, creating vibrant orange and red colours that continually changed. It was truly spectacular.  One of these photos was the reference for this painting.

The following morning we were up very early and climbed to the summit of the rock. As we reached the top of the very steep climb we were shocked by the sudden wind that hit us. The view from the top was amazing and in the distance we could see the Olgas (Kata Tjuta in Aborigine) which is the other end of this amazing rock formation. We visited there later in the day. It was a truly memorable experience.
