Ayers Rock in the rain - a unique wonder of nature!
Ayers Rock or Uluru is one of the world most famous and oldest rock formations located in the Central Australia. Rains in the area are a very rare occasion, but when it is raining, the view is somewhat surrealistic!
Uluru is a brown and orange sandstone monolith of an oval form. Its length and width are 3.6 km and 3 km correspondingly while its height is 348 meters.
There are a lot of caves in the base of the rock with ancient petroglyphic drawings and carvings. The surface of Uluru is dissected with parallel furrows up to 2 meters deep.
The monolith is very often called a chameleon-rock since it changes its color depending on the time of the day and weather conditions. For example, in the morning, it may look purple, reddish, pink or even golden!
Uluru is designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
But what about rains? Because of the dry climate of the area precipitations are very rare. However, if you are lucky enough to be there when it rains, you will enjoy a magnificent show! After a heavy shower, large amounts of water run off the monolith like small waterfalls. The number of such “waterfalls” can reach one hundred!
As you see, one has a very little chance to witness such a show, so we have prepared a set of photos depicting this unusual natural phenomenon.
Have you ever been to Australia and seen Uluru with your own eyes? You are welcome to leave comments!
