I am not one who likes to visit - and take pictures of - famous places. When I travel, I generally give them a miss.
Ayers Rock, the bigget rock in the world, is an exception. I always held a fascination for the place and, when an opportunity arose for me to visit Australia in 1986, I made a special - and very long - detour there.
I had a rented car and drove solo from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock. It was one of my most memorable travel adventures ever. And when I was there, I drove around the rock - a distance of about 10 km - and photographed it from various angles, using up about four rolls of film in the process, which was considered a lot at that time.
This is my all time favourite image of the rock. If you view closely, you can see a naked tree at the bottom right. That's how big the crack - which I call Nature's Signature - is.
I can quite safely bet that NOBODY has so far taken a similar picture of the world's most famous rock!
