From the end of today and the beginning of tonight

Don’t expect me to pronounce it by its modern name Uluru, which I suppose is a bit of a misnomer as Ayres Rock IS its modern name seeing as it has now reverted back to its aboriginal name.

A wee scan on Wikipedia informs me that it was not Ayres that found it… accepting the fact that thousands of years of aboriginal civilisation did not count and given a rock that size the original inhabitants of the country were bound to find it sooner or later, any way “On 19 July 1873, the surveyor William Gosse sighted the landmark and named it Ayers Rock in honour of the then Chief Secretary of South Australia, Sir Henry Ayers.[2] Since then, both names have been used.

Anyway, a glance out the window and another sprint down the road with the camera got me this one. I’ll come clean and admit that I cooked it just a little, I’m not guilty of cooking HDR shots but this one kind of deserved it.
