Thanks, Csaba and Alex. I didn't post this while I was in Australia, partly because I needed to choose among several, but partly because there's something a bit strange and uncanny about the sight. But now that I know what species it is, Alex, it's okay! ;-)

thats a great and unusual photo of uluru marilyn! fantastic... quite eerie too.

Marilyn Whiteley on October 15, 2007

Thanks, steandeb. Yes, I find it eerie, too. I have a zoom shot that's even eerier, if that's a word, but decided that this one is eerie enough!

Fantastic photo, Marilyn! Greetings from Poland

Marilyn Whiteley on October 16, 2007

Thanks, Karolina. There is something of fantasy about it even though that's what I saw! Greetings from Canada.

Wow!!! the shape of the rock looks an alien Marilyn!!! with a huge "sucking nose"?! Lovely

Marilyn Whiteley on October 17, 2007

Thank you Marek and Francesco. Yes, the rock looked to me like an alien, and then I noticed the tree with its pinching "fingers"!

So, i see you´ve been to OZ this year... I like the mammooth of Uluru, because i haven´t been there myself, i just stayed for a week in Sydney and took a daytrip to the Blue Mountains when i was travelling through New Zealand for half a year, but i certainly will come back to see more of Australia...

Cheers, Andreas!

Marilyn Whiteley on December 28, 2007

Yes, the Red Centre is full of fascination. I haven't posted many Uluru photos because there are already so many on Panoramio. By all means when you're there, get to King's Canyon. Not everyone does--it's a little out of the way--but it's wonderful, and full of photo opportunities.

Cheers, Marilyn

A nice shot at Uluru. I see you got around while were here,hope you enjoyed it.If come again visit Tasmania it's something entirely different to everywhere else.Greetings from Forster Australia Brian.

Marilyn Whiteley on March 29, 2009

Thanks, Brian.

I was recently thinking of going to a meeting in Melbourne in July, and if I did, we'd have extended the trip to get to Tasmania. But some things have come up and we're not going to go. Maybe another time!

Greetings from Ontario, Canada, Marilyn
