The Colour of Sandstone

Red sandstone of the Australian outback is often not what it appears to be. The red dust blasting through the interior is like a giant spray can painting our iconic landmarks like Uluru hiding other colours under that thin veneer.

Here in Kings Canyon a large section of the canyon wall has fallen away reveling the true colours of the sandstone beneath.
