“I still remember the contract my photographer had to sign when I first visited Uluru in 1993. We helicoptered over it, but were only allowed to photograph some angles. I’d never heard of such a thing! This is a great facet of travel: making you ponder the why. How sacred is this to the local people? We didn’t understand, but as soon as we saw Uluru, we felt the power surge from the rock and its surroundings. This time, I was impressed by how things have progressed in terms of sustainability and awareness of the impact of tourism. It was great to hear all the stories and legends emphasized by guides.” Instagram: @rongluckman.
