Photographer's Note

I have corrected the tilt (it is hard to keep the horizon level in a fast moving helicoptor), and tried to correct the slight oe at right. Taken with an old Pentax ME Super film camera using Fuji ISO 200 film. 9:45 am. Winter temperatures are tolerable but it often reaches 45c in the shade in summer. I was surprised to learn that the summit is about 3,500 feet above sea level even though Uluru summit is only a little over 1,000 feet above the surrounding plain.

It is not hard to work out why this area is often called the 'red centre' or Australia's 'red heart'.
