Happy New Year, I’m back at work and it all begins anew. At the end of my photographic tour to the Bungle Bungles in 2011 we took the group on a cruise on Lake Argyle. It was a perfectly still afternoon without a breath of wind, a perfect day for cruising on a beautiful lake with the Carr Boyd ranges for a backdrop.
Still waters of Lake Argyle
At one point somewhere near he middle of Lake Argyle, just as the setting sun was making the Kimberley Sandstone come alive and the reflections were rippling on the water, this image presented itself. It seems to me that the water continued on and on up into the sky with no horizon visible, while the islands in the distance seemed to just hang in space.
The image only remained for a few seconds, and the Linhof Technorama is not the easiest camera to hand hold… and keeping the horizon straight with the 72mm Schneider Kreuznach lens was a challenge (35mm equivalent of about 17mm), but i think its worked and so did the AIPP as they gave me a silver award for it in last years APPAs.
