    Uluru is the correct aboriginal name for this magnificent mass of red arkosic sandstone standing proud of the surrounding desert by a good 348 meters.  It is situated in southwestern Northern Territory in the Red Centre of Australia some 280 miles southwest of Alice Springs.  Uluru is certainly the world’s largest monolith (a monolith being composed of only one rock type) and it shares its status as a world heritage site with its sister, Kata-Tjuta (place of many domes).  There are countless photographs of Uluru in countless books.  However, regardless of how imposing a site it looks from a distance, it is only up close that we can see how really interesting the rock face is, peppered with caves, gullies and pot-holes, and streaked with bands and veins of colour running almost vertically down the rock.  All this rich texture we see contrasting with the soft lemon-yellow of the grass, and the branches of that wonderfully dead tree cleverly echoing the crevices in the weathered red surface.
