Photographer's Note

This was my first time here and I was stunned. Kata Tjuta is also know as the Olgas, named after a European queen. The formations live up to that title.

They are made of round rocks cemented together, then eroded into these beautiful mounds by such force that all protruding rocks were snapped off at the surface. Then all the rocky debris washed clean away.

Then, as it aged, it rusted to this beautiful red.

The original photo was a little underexposed (I was trying to compensate for the strong light out there)
I hit the I'm feeling lucky button and this is the end result so I'm not sure what all the adjustments are.
