This is the second image from my recent brief trip to Karijini National Park in the Pilbara Region of WA. I have lots of new images from that region, but finding time to work on them it difficult at the moment it seems. With running a gallery and organising Photographic tours to exotic locations my days seem to be full!
This image was shot pre-sunrise above Spa Pool in Hamersley Gorge with the borrowed Hasselblad H5D-50 and the Hasselblad HCD 28mm lens.

Hamersley Gorge is one of the most beautiful gorges in an already phenomenal place, Karijini National Park. When tourists come into the gallery and say to me, “I have 2 weeks here in Australia, where should I go?” 9 times out of 10 I say, go to Karijini, and don’t skip Hamersley Gorge!
Hamersley Gorge is outside the main part of the park, and requires a drive of a couple of hours to get to, but it is so very much worth it. I was back there again a few weeks ago and after many visits it still takes my breath away. This is the first of the new images of Hamersley Gorge from the last trip, shot with the borrowed Hasselblad H5D-50 (While my Hasselblad was visiting relatives in Europe). It’s actually the first time I have been to the park with a digital camera… Such a relief to not be shooting with a 6 x17 camera any more, it’s such a painful format!
