Another image from Rudell River National Park in the Central Pilbara Region, this one from the ridge just outside the Desert Queens Bath, a magic waterhole hidden away within the National Park (coming up in another post). This was shot at sunrise across the plains into the light, which provides the glowing halo around the spinifex plant.
Shot with the Hasselblad H5D-50 and the 28mm lens.
Something a bit more local, from my quick trip to the Pilbara region last year. This Image from Rudell River National Park, an amazingly isolated National Park in the Central Pilbara Region of WA, right on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. In fact, Rudell River National Park is WA’s largest and most isolated National Parks, and considering how isolated the whole of WA is that is really saying something.
This image is a very simple one of a couple of Ghost Gums in the twilight afterglow, it’s a 2 minute exposure, which is the practical limit for the Hasselblad H5D-50 that I borrowed for the trip (the H4D was having a holiday in Sweden). If you look very closely you can see the faint pink clouds in the background.
This image was shot just on the way out of the Desert Queens Bath campsite a few minutes after sunrise. If you click on the image you will be able to see more detail of the track leading in at the bottom of the ridge. Rudell River National Park is extremely isolated and you need to be pretty self sufficient and confident of your vehicle and driving skills, it’s also stunningly beautiful, especially in the early morning and evening when the soft light makes the hard country of the Pilbara look more gentle, soft even… It’s not.
This image was shot on the Sony A7-r and is a 20 odd image stitch
