Uluru at Sunset and Sunrise

Champagne at sunset is traditional. The viewing lot is chock a block full of coaches and catering tables. Cheesey? yes. Cool? You bet! It is a great tradition as far as I'm concerned. Drinking champagne and gazing at the iconic view of Uluru is the bomb! Note the was cold! The rock really does changes colors as the sun sets, going from a copper red, through purples to dunn brown. A Carrot at Uluru! The food down under is quite British...meaning that vegetables are NOT the center of the meal and fresh vegetables are even less so. I was so excited that the caterers brought raw veggies! Sunrise we watched from near out hotel.
It was cloudy, so no where near as spectacular as sunset, but still pretty wonderful.
I don't know who this woman is, but she stood through most of sunset with her arms stretched out in welcome.
