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.

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.

Lake Argyle in Flood

June 9th, 2011

Lake Argyle is currently at record flood levels, again due to the massive wet season, and the water flowing out of the overflow spillway is enough to fill Mundaring Weir in Perth (one of Perth’s major water supply damns) every 8 minutes… which doesn’t mean that is actually a viable option for getting water to Perth, it is 2500 km after all… that’s a long and expensive way  to make a pipeline.

Purnululu and the Bungle Bungles

Photographic Tour of the Bungle Bungles 2011

Still up in the tropical paradise  that is Broome enjoying the hospitality of Nigel and Helen.  My wife is flying up today for the second stage of the Kimberley adventure, so i’d better have a shave and change my shirt… after i put up some images from the recent  7 day photographic tour of the Bungle Bungles that we returned from a few days ago.

The massive wet season that has just concluded has affected Purnululu National Park as well, with the road in only opening up a few weeks ago, and the second campsite and half the gorges remaining closed still.  This meant we couldn’t make it into Echidna Chasm or the Mini Palms Gorge, cutting down some of the sights and lookouts we could get to within the park.

To balance this up we went on a gruelling (but also stunningly beautiful) full day hike into Piccinini Creek Gorge.  Ironically, the one  who suggested the hike up the Gorge decided not to come in the end.  He missed out on some beautiful locations, but he also missed out on really sore feet that took 2 days to recover from!
