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.

The Bungle Bungles in Purnululu National Park is one of the The Kimberley’s most spectacular places. Another world of ancient beehive shaped domes, gorges, towering chasms and hidden creeks, it truly is world heritage place that you should not miss, and once you have been you will want to go back (as i do…).

Photographic Tour 2011
Back in lovely Broome after a long drive of 1000km from Kununurra after the completeion of the 7day photographic tour of the Bungle Bungles with myself and Nigel Gaunt. Time now to take stock, do the washing, download some pictures and write a blog entry or two. Firstly a quick recap of the 7 day photographic tour of the Kimberley which concluded in Kununurra a little over a week ago.
Initially we intended to go across the Gibb River Rd from Broome to Kununurra on this 7 day photographic tour, camping in many of the scenic locations along the way to photograph and swim in tropical waterholes. That was plan A. But, the record biggest ever wet, which has filled all the waterholes to overflowing, has also destroyed all the dirt roads making many of them still impassable. Even Windjana Gorge, one of the most popular Read the rest of this entry »
