Loved this image obtained by a Korean satellite and published on the ABC website.

Shows a side of Uluru we don't usually see!

Thanks J & V - just had a look at the Google Earth version and can't really see it because it is covered in everyone's pics - damn shame they can't stick them on the side so we can still see the spectacle - that makes your pic so very special.

It is, in fact, possible to hide all the photos, just need to turn off the "Photos" layer in the left hand menu (towards the bottom). That way you can see the satellite image without all the crap.

Strange that google maps is the same eh. Up until just now I never googled the area before... there are some other fabulous range/rock formations in the general area as well.

Hi Barry,

Good point!

I note too Michelle's recent comments regarding publishing other people's photos.

Next time I'll save bandwidth and embarrassment by just giving the link!

Cheers

I have flown from Alice to Perth a couple of times and the planes pilot has always pointed the rock out to passengers. Does look different when viewing so far up.

Great image. Certianly amazing side of her.
Even more amazing is climbing to the top of Ayres Rock. Incredible view but can be extremely windy. Feels like you are on top of the world.

When we flew near, the pilot said he was not permitted to fly over it, but he did his best to give us a good aerial view.

That view looks very familiar to me except I saw it on black and white aerial photos. In a past life I made an orthophoto image of it on a Zeiss Topcart, as well drawing 20 & 50 metre contours lines around it. Its all old history now, like me.
