Kata Tjuta - The Olgas Aerial View

These domed rock formations are named Kata Tjuta, Mount Olga, or The Olgas. There are 36 different domes, though these that you see here are probably the highest, protruding almost 1,800 feet above the surrounding desert. See that "tiny" hump in the distance? Yeah, that's Ayers Rock (Uluru). The Olgas and Ayers Rock are the only distinct feature four thousands of miles in Australia's red center. They are geologically related, having similar rock structure and color. I took this photo from a small plane during a short scenic flight at sunset.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.
