Picture of the Moment - Uluru as it Normally Is

Okay, it's not normally cloudy at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, and I didn't capture the brilliant hues of sunrise or sunset, when the big monolith lights up like fire. But that's why I like this pedestrian picture of one of the world's iconic places, it's my memory.

So what if it's not calendar-worthy? This is my Uluru. And, it's hard to find commercial photography of the place that captures the typical terra cotta palette like this. Everyone is looking for the money shot. But even on an overcast day it rises from the vast desert plain like a supernatural sentinel.

Do you cherish an equally humdrum photo of a special place you visited?
