All the photo's I'd seen did nothing to pursued me. Who wanted to look at a rock? how boring!
But....from the first moment I approached the Rock, driving along the road and into a closer proximity, I was enthralled.
It is so huge rising from nowhere out of the dessert landscape.
A physical phenomenon that dominates and captures your mind in a spiritual experience. You look and look, not wanting it to withdrawl from your vision.
Tourists gather at varies times during the day, particually at sunrise and sunset, to capture the change in colours. Not only of the Rock but also the surrounding sky overhead.
I wasn't there at sunrise but I took this photo at sunset as the Rock turned from sandstone to brilliant orange.
The encounter was as if from another time.... MESMERISING.
Words cannot describe my feelings resulting from this encounter.
