– Colours in the Sky –

_MG_9385-2
Low clouds littered the sky and soaked up the colours of the setting sun. Sometimes all you have to do is look up.

– Karijini Landscape –

IMG_4850
The Pilbara landscape is frequently referred to as ‘Gods Country” as you can see why. The contrast of colours, from the very bluest skies, to the never ending spread of yellow spinifex spread across the red parched land. It’s out of this world.

Karijini is at the heart of the Pilbara. The iconic national park is one of the most spectacular in the country with deep gorges cutting through the land.

One of my favourites to visit.

Bluff Knoll, Stirling Range, Western Australia

BluffKnoll-LAB

Bluff Knoll is the highest mountain in the SW of Western Australia. Standing at 3’600ft above sea level, it is one of the few places in WA where it snows.  A 20cm “dump” of snow occurred on the summit in October 1992, it also fell at the base of the mountain at 1’500ft.
While snow falls of this magnitude are extremely rare, it is not uncommon for dustings to occur during the late winter months, when strong cold fronts bring very cold air up from the antarctic.

Approaching Storms

untitled-(1-of-1)-3

Last month I travelled north to capture storms that were forecast to develop around the Jurien/Coorow/Moora areas.
After a big night of lightning near Jurien, the storms started to develop further inland.
I was on my way to meet up with another storm photographer Marie and her parter Arek, when I saw this developing just to my north.
It turned out to be quite nasty when it hit, strong wind gusts, and isolated very heavy rain impacted the area, about 30km or so NNW of Moora.

Dawn over the Beach

Tom and I decided that we wanted to shoot the city this morning, but approaching the freeway, it was very obvious we were not going to make it on time as the traffic was ridiculous. A quick change of plan was due, so with a cold front approaching the WA coast, we both thought the coast would be a good option to shoot the morning light with the approaching high cloud.

Into the Unknown

 

This shot is one that I have envisioned and composed in my head countless times. I either ride, walk or drive past here daily and I have waited and waited to get just the right level of water, and the right amount of fog needed to complete what I had in my mind.
I am truly so incredibly happy with this shot.

I had told Tom about this spot the day prior, but as I hadn’t really  scoped the position out 100%, I didn’t want to risk wasting a morning on a new location just to find out that the variables didn’t add up.

I am so glad we made our way here this morning, as the fog was just perfect. Even though it may have been just that little bit chilly.

Jindalee Beach III

A few nights ago I revisited my new local beach (I have finally moved into my new place woohooo).
Jindalee is a new coastal suburb located about 40kms north of Perth, Western Australia. We are lucky in Perth as the coastline is incredible, and we get to the chance to experience sunsets like this everyday. It still amazes me that overseas travellers tend to spend most of their time on the east coast of Australia and not venture west to explore this side of the country.

Mindarie Marina

Mindarie Marina is located 30 minutes north of Perth City in Western Australia. This man made marina boasts some of the best marina estates in the state with multi million dollar properties leading right down to the waters edge, most with private jetties.

This is the first time I have taken photos here, so expect many more 🙂

Amazing what filters can do. My last shot was from the same location as this one. Only differences, no 10 stop ND filter, and this time it was taken in portrait.

Big Brook Dam


Big Brook Dam is located deep in the south-west region of Western Australia near the forestry town of Pemberton. The site is managed by the Department of Environment and Conservation and was built to supplement the Pemberton town and Trout Hatchery water supply. Big Brook Dam is just one of the many DEC campsites throughout the south-west showcasing the magnificent state we live in.

Ord River

Last year I was fortunate enough to visit the Kimberley. It was my first time in the area, and I certainly wasn’t let down. After many years of people telling me to get up here, I finally did. As it was for work, I wasn’t able to get out and take many photos. I will however be back there next wet season to capture the fantastic landscape, with the monsoonal thunderstorms.

The Ord River is about 320kms long with the headwaters located below the 983-metre Mount Wells and initially flows east and around the edge of Purnululu National Park before heading North through Lake Argyle then passing west of Kununurra and discharging into theCambridge Gulf, which is at the southern extremity of the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, Timor Sea. The river has 35 tributaries of which the five longest are Bow River, Nicholson River, Dunham River, Panton River and Negri Rivers.
The lower reaches of the river support an important wetland area known as the Ord River Floodplain, a protected area which contains numerous mangrove forests, lagoons, creeks, flats and extensive floodplains.
