Hamersley Gorge

Well I am just back last evening from an amazing five days inside Karijini National Park … This time I flew up to Port Hedland instead of the 16hr drive each way to save some time … But maybe next time I would not fly into Port Hedland, it is still quite a drive to Karijini National Park from there …

While inside Karijini National Park I experienced all four seasons. With heavy rain overnight to misty showers for a full morning providing a great opportunity to photograph in overcast conditions, perfect blue skies with amazing clouds on another day to a cool morning and some very warm afternoons with thunderstorms brewing and the odd lightning show thrown in each evening, it was all on show and I lapped up every opportunity presented.

Hamersely Gorge was one of the gorges I never had the chance to visit in 2010 so this time round it was a must visit spot, regardless of distance, I wanted to see it … And I am so glad I did. Hamersley would be my favourite gorge to photograph. I love the beauty of the smooth water curve stone that surrounds the gorge it reminded myself of the erosion one sees inside the subway canyon inside the USA. Photographing the gorge for a few hours trying to capture as much as I could up an down the gorge spending sunset on the top of the gorge looking over over the Hamersley Ranges (images to come) ….

This particular image was taken inside the Hamersley Gorge and the first of a series I will be posting for Karijini National Park over the next few weeks … With many files and I think there could have quite a few quite nice landscape images from this stunning location in Western Australia’s North.
