All pictured-out

For the Uluru sunset, Cheryl made the choice to set up our champagne and snack at a private shelter.  We were exhausted from hiking in the heat and having started our day at 4 am, and I had taken so many photos in the past two days, I admitted to being “all pictured out.” Charlie and Erin raised their glasses in a toast and we all had a laugh. Do you know why the shelter was private? Because from that vantage point, you couldn’t take a good photo of Uluru: it was in shadow, and of course the sunset was brilliantly bright.  Hundreds of tourists were huddled like outback flies at a superior vantage point.  It was okay.  I was ready to put the camera down and enjoy several glasses of Australian bubbly.  Excellent day, excellent guide. As Courtney would say, “Epic.”  We were all very thankful.
