Karijini Reflections

I found this image in my archives and after working it found that it came up pretty well. It is the result of a fantastic day out with fellow adventure photog, Brent Pearson.

We set out with a Guide down the Knox Gorge in Karijini, then down a waterfall slide into a pool, abseiling down a small cliff into another pool and then paddling down the lower pools on tyres until we came out at the bottom of Hancock Gorge where this shot was taken.

We had our camera kit in waterproof pelican cases and simply tied out tripods over our shoulders. The slide down the waterfall and then the drop into a 5m final plunge into the pool below was quite a sight with all the kit.

We managed to ping of a number of gems on this little excursion.

It comes to those who think outside the square a bit. Thanks for organising this excursion for us Brent! 🙂

Karijini Zig Zag











I am enjoying going back through the KJ RAW files again…finding some gold in there that I had passed over!

This one is no exception. A 3 shot verticle stitch, with the top 2 blended for the 2 exposures.

Once again the heros in the shot are the spinifex I reckon and teh zig zag lines through the image.

Shark Bay Lookout Vertical











Another image from the trip on the way up to Karijini earlier this year with many of the other Photogs.

I now recall what attracted me to this image. The beaut shadows from the clouds, the bright earthy colours…the various leading lines and the awesome clouds.

Whilst I was shooting this facing away from the western sun, Christian Peter Eastway and many others were all trying to get something from the Western Perspective.

I very much rate this perspective and the even light made for a much easier shoot!

Karijini Whirlpool Colours








After a run of water based shots recently I felt the need to get back to some earthy colours, so of course went back to my old favorite..Karijini!

I found this one lurking in the archives and was a product of a light painting session with my old Buddy Brent Pearson…the light painting guru!

Incidently he was in town last night and we caught up and talked photo stuff for most of the night over a lamb roast…awlays great to catch up with Brent.

I love the colours and textures in this image and the way the light has brought out more colours than would have been possible without light painting.
