In Australia they have placed restrictions on photographing Uluru (Ayer's Rock) for commercial purposes (including fine art) without a permit. A large portion of the rock is off limits to photography - that is why you only see images of the rock from a certain viewpoint.

BTW, the picture of Uluru I use for my avartar wasn't taken by me, it came from Australia.com.
