Turning
your back on a sunset may seem counterintuitive, but Uluru—the massive red-rock
monolith that looms above Australia’s stark northern desert—always upstages the

photographer Steve Strike, is Sunset Strip, a picnic
area in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. From here, Strike says, the rock seems
to glow with fiery color—especially between May and October, when the cooler
weather brings high clouds that reflect the light.
