James, you have truly seen it all, man.
Goodness gracious, what a mind-boggling aerial view of these rocks in Australia!
We have seen much of that single big one, but this is something much more interesting. From this aerial perspective, the magnitude of these rocks is not dwarfed at all; on the contrary.
The slanting light has lit the rocks beautifully, creating great contrasts at the same time. The depth of view is magnificent and Uluru looks impressive even from this distance.
Thanks for this great image and best regards.

great light, TFS Ori
Very nice if scanned for sure...good lighting and recreation of the scene via this method. When you say Light aircraft...do you mean something like ultra-lite or Cessna or what? Very well then.
Having travelled quite a bit in Utah I have seen lots of native petroglyphs and wondered about the "varnish". I suppose that is one difference between lazy me and more dedicated you! You find out what things are and probably remember them too!!!!!!!!!! MY memory is so bad! Thanks, I found your note very interesting.
The variety in your gallery is staggering! I love the light in this shot.

We have red rocks in Arizona and there are many in Utah but they don't glimmer like this. And of course they aren't rounded as these are. A wonderful shot from the air with excellent colors and details.

Affascinante paesaggio dall'alto, il sole radente esalta il colore rossastro di queste bellissime rocce e crea questo forte contrasto di luci e ombre, mi piace inoltre la visione allargata sul grande spazio. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

It is a beautiful colour through this varnish you are talking about in your note. Especially with this low lighting.

Your landscape images posted lately has taken me on holiday a few times this last week or so. – Free of charge of course. Over Kata Tjuta - The Olgas is no exception. This aerial view of these rounded domes is great. The shadow spots in between add some kind of ominousness feeling to it, but then on the other hand the sunlight overshadow that feeling. The view looking back far in the distance is just awesome and such a reality of the greatness of the Creation and beauty of nature. Thank you for taking me on holiday by plane to a destination I’ll never have the opportunity to visit. The free ride was most enjoyable.
My best regards.

The time of day is everything in a shot like this..And your image proves it. The long shadows transform the image giving it a great sense of depth, and a life of its own..
Thanx for the notes on the geology, and the "desert varnish" look.

Wonderful pictures with a great textures due to the light and shadows... The only thing is that the horizon is not ... horizontal ;-) Easy to correct in Photoshop.
Great job and TFS

What a view! The rocks are such a gorgeous colour in the soft, low light. The shadows from the rocks and surrounding vegetation add lots of interest to your image.
It's must have been an interesting flying over this area getting a birds eye view. Very interesting notes.

We never went to Australia. - and now I look at your photo - And i regret it. Still, the world is so big, and traveling in Europe for instance one can see more in 6 weeks than in the same timespan one could in Australia...
I see in your profile, you also fled to a less wet climate...:-)
Your photo is breathtaking, the aerial view so much better than shots taken at ground level!
Thanks for the comprehensive information (notes) and sharing your work. I add your photo to my theme "high altitude"
Warm greetings from the TzaneenDam, Limpopo, South Africa
