Congratulations to this week’s AG Flickr group member Richard Rydge, for his AG Reader Photo of the Week, ‘Kata Tjuṯa‘.

“This was taken on a helicopter tour during a day trip to King’s Canyon,” says Richard.

“On the day of the flight we detoured past Kata Tjuṯa, and then on the following day walked through it during a rainstorm. Waterfalls were running down the peaks and torrents of water rushing through gorges. Even our guide was delighted by this rare event.”
