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! 🙂
Just going back through some more Karijini shots and found another perspective of the Zig Zag shot I posted recently.
What attracted me to this shot mainly was the vibrant grey colours in amongst the spinifex which is a very unusual colour in a landscape as well as making it intriguing.
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.
I took this image on the first morning at Karijini with an amazing array of colours greeting us on the top of Weano George.
Gotta love the way the spinifex catches those early rays and how the reds just glow with the early soft light.
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!
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.
I was going through some of my Karijini RAW shots and found this little gem lurking. I have called it ‘Where’s Wally, coz there is a guy in some sluggos in the image about to go for a dip!
See if you can find him!
This is a 6 shots stitch from the Top of Weno Gorge Karijini. Neal from Spool was perched here as I was walking down so I thought I would join him.
I think what attracted me to this shot was the texture in the rocks ad how typical the colours were of Karijini.
Here is another little gem I found in my Karijini files. Sun was just coming up in these burned out fields and you will note the awesome caramelisation of the sap on the side of the bark on the trees. The early morning glow really enhanced this heat affected bark.
