Lake Argyle Skyline

January 4th, 2013

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.

Photographic Tour of the Bungle Bungles 2012

March 21st, 2012

Photographic Tour

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…).

Geikie Gorge twilight

January 23rd, 2012

Im definitely showing signs of improvement, with 2 posts in two weeks!  This is another shot from my latest trip to the Kimberley last year.  I haven’t been into Geikie Gorge for quite a few years, as its near Fitzroy Crossing just off the main road and if i’m going that way the Gibb River Rd is my preference.

Camping around Fitzroy Crossing is a bit scarce, unless you want to stay in a camp ground in the town, which i don’t, as it’s not really my favourite town… though in saying that, it does appear to have improved in the last 10 years, which was the last time i stopped there.

Ivanhoe Crossing in flood

January 19th, 2012

It’s half way through January and i still have my gallery Christmas opening hours up as my last blog post… so much for new years resolutions!  Oh well, i can only move on from here and hope i can do better.  With that in mind i have this great image from Ivanhoe Crossing just out of Kununurra, in the East Kimberley Region, that i took back in July of last year.

Road Closed…!

The water is still raging after the huge wet season, and as you can see, the road is still closed…  I just love the irony of this actually being a road.  I think its something only someone who has been to the North of Australia would fully appreciate.  I’ve driven my car across this crossing before (not this trip!) and i have fished for Barramundi out in the middle of it (unsuccessfully unfortunately), but i don’t think i’d be wading out there now.

October 20th, 2011

The exhibition is up on the wall, the programs are all printed and its only 3pm, i’ve got time to spare… so i thought i’d share what i’ve put on the wall at the beginning of the images.  I’m sure i’ll offend somebody, but, some people are just easy to offend.  lets see.

The Kimberley – A Photographic Exploration

The Kimberley gets into your blood with the red pindan, it simply becomes a part of you, and you become a small part of it.  It is a difficult place to leave and it will always call you back. Read the rest of this entry »

I spent a total of 3 months travelling through the Kimberley this time, and just after the biggest wet season on record.  Many roads were so badly damaged by the immense amount of water that they were shut well into the dry season Read the rest of this entry »

Back from the Kimberley

September 5th, 2011

I’m back… Back from the Kimberley, and back in Blog land.  I’ve actually been back in Fremantle for a month now, but i’ve been so busy catching up with everything that had been put on hold, that time to write on the Blog never materialised… also, i am a great procrastinator, possibly one of the best, and anything to do with writing is what i’m best at procrastinating about Read the rest of this entry »
