Uluru Sunrise

Uluru Sunrise

We woke up at 4:45am to drive to a location offering a great view of the rising sun, Uluru, and the Australian outback.  It was worth it, but the magical sunrise only lasted a couple of minutes (literally–all my shots were within a two minute window).

Some minor exposure correction was done in Lightroom to bring out the foreground, and noise reduction was done in Photoshop.

I should mention that this image was taken using my GorillaPod SLR Zoom that I had as a camera support.  A tripod would have been better, but luckily at this location there were sturdy handrails that I could attach the GorillaPod to.  It worked out quite well.
