Early morning catches the bark of a ghost gum and the domes of Kata Tjuta in full splendour. I had the permission of local Aboriginal elders to photograph here, and it was out of respect for their traditional beliefs that I purposely included more than just one of Kata Tjuta’s domes in the composition. But this was back in the days before bureaucrats began over-regulating this national park. Nowadays, ninety-five percent of the Kata Tjuta area, including the location pictured here.
This scene typifies Australia's outback. A Ghost Gum's smooth white bark contrasts with the rugged red-brown ridges of the MacDonnell Ranges, Northern Territory. #SteveParish #Australia #Landscape http://www.steveparishgallery.com/products-page/outback/macdonnell-ranges-nt-2/
