Weekly Photo Challenge: Half-Light

My family and I are currently on our first trip to Australia.  This has been at the top of my bucket list since I was a little girl. I can still hardly believe that we are actually here! I have always been a night owl, so it is quite rare that I actually get to see the sunrise. My family and I decided to book a sunrise viewing of Uluru (Ayers Rock) this morning.

We had to get up at 4:15 am to join our tour which began at 5:15 am.  It was a bit rough getting up for all of us, but well worth seeing the sunrise highlighting this stunning monolith sandstone rock right in front of us!  We also enjoyed walking around this sacred site and learning more about the Anangu people. I was quite surprised to see this evening that the challenge this week was half-light. I had a quick laugh as I thought it was quite ironic to have just done our sunrise viewing this morning! I will post more photos from our Australian adventure later, but here are a few photos from this morning:

This was the beautiful sight we saw a little while after we arrived at the sunrise viewing platform.
