Vale Mirka Mora

Very sad to hear of the passing of Mirka Mora, an extraordinary and much loved artist. She will be missed by so many.
Way back in 1974, I made some images of Mirka for a friend studying at university, who was doing a project on her and her artwork. They were made under very poor light and were the best I could do at the time and I feel it is timely to put them on my blog ...

Central Australia _ Day 6

Now on the final stage of our journey ... Sunrise at Uluru ...
Up at 5:45 and it was a rather cool one degree morning, with a significant wind chill factor and needed to be well rugged up... the constantly changing light very beautiful ...








Later in the morning we went for a walk round the base of Uluru and visited the Muti Julu Waterhole area, a stunning walk with aboriginal rock painting, incredible rock faces, landscape and waterhole  ...
























Waiting for a second Uluru sunset, before viewing the 'Field off Lights' ...
Glowing spinifex grass and desert oaks (the smaller, vertical 'triffid' like juveniles are up to 80 years old, while the mature versions are up to 300 years old... amazing)...
