Montgomery Magic!

Montgomery Blue St

Imagine my glee when PT Gui actually stitched this image and I didn’t have to hand stitch it!

Happy days!

This image shows one of the many moods and colours that you see when spending 3/4 of a day there. It was great to arrive just on sunrise and what the wonderful spectacle of the 300 sq km reef appear out of no where!

My wife Lee was looking for an abstract Kimberley image today to go up on our bedroom wall with a particular colour palette, so i went straight to my RAW files of Montgomery Reef and this is the result.

I think it will look good against the bed head wall with similar reds adjacent to the image!

Montgomery Mega St

This is another image for my spashback range and is the widest stitch I have ever done!

17 images manually stitched and the full size image is 45,000 pixels wide x 7500 pixels high and is over a gig in size!

Nothing that my new 750 gig solid state Mac book Pro couldn’t handle!

Enjoy!

Montgomery Island

Montomery Island

Another little gem from Montgomery reef.

The clouds and clarity in the sky were especially clear on this day. I have often seen it quite hazy up there due to the incessant burning off that DEC does???

For the life of me, I still don’t get why they need to do that in such a remote area. Let nature take its course I say!

The mighty Montgomery Reef, Kimberley

The Montgomery Reef never fails to impress and on last weeks Trip, she surely turned it on for the PODAS guests on board True North.

When I asked many of the passengers who did the aerial heli flight over the reef that day what they thought, many simply said…speechless!

Montgomery Reef is about 600 sq km in size and when True North arrives, the Captains expertly position True North down the main gap in the reef. When we arrive there and look out at high tide you think, why would we be anchoring here…and then the tide starts to go out and the reef starts to emerge from the depths revealing the beauty below.

The water starts to cascade faster and faster down the emerging reef as the tide goes out and the speed at which this happens catches out a lot of sea life, so the birds appear taking advantage of this daily phenomenon.

With all of this, the only way to truly see the colours, textures and overall beauty is to get up high in the True North help.
Enjoy! 🙂
