Karijini National Park

Earlier this year I had the chance to visit Karijini National Park. While I have been there a couple of times before this was the first time I was able to get up there in the wet season. And a vastly different place it is at this time of year.

Firstly there was a cyclone that ripped through the area just north of Karijini National Park a few days before but it also left a vast amount of rain in and around Karijini, cutting off access roads and towns. If we had planned to go up 2 days earlier we would of not of been able to get through the closed access roads.

We waiting the main roads department close all the roads and reopen them slowly over the course of 3 days from the comfort of home and the Department Of Main Roads website updates …

Two days before the last of the access roads opened we set off on the 1600km drive up to Karijini National Park. Stopped off at Coral bay for a night before heading into the park.

One the best reasons to go in the wet season is the storms firing in over the land. They make for some spectacular colour to an already stunning landscape as evident below with a late afternoon summer storm that surrounded us me as I shot over the gorges below. Incredible light and stunning scenery, you cant ask for more than that …

A Winters Sunrise

First up thanks once again to all those nice people that have purchased a print from myself over the last month, its folks like you that keep this site alive and enable me to venture out and capture those moments we are sometimes in our busy lives just too busy to see.

My next up to blog is a simple image I took in the winter of 2010 between winter storms along the southern coastline of Western Australia. I chose a square composition for this shot as i had taken plenty of panoramics of the area and was looking for a more intimate shot of the location …

Now available on the website “A Winters Sunrise” in many sizes or email/call me for your custom size requirement …

Abandonment On Hwy 395

Recently I added an image to my Facebook Page that was quite a departure from my normal type of image. While I had taken the image some 2 years ago the post production was never completed for a number of reasons, one being I had a complete mental block on the image until recently … The original posting on the Facebook Page was somewhat darker in a number of areas and a few folks had mentioned that I could do with lightening up the left corner a little more … Thus leading to this posting of the new post post production of the image …

Thanks to those that helped put with the constructive critique and artistic approach of this image to enable this image to get to where it is right now … One of my favorites in recent months ….
