Going Big. Going Abstract.
When you can’t pick a favourite photo why not pick something that captures the essence of the place. Kimberley blue. And sandstone gold. Wind, water and earth.
This looks and feels more like a painting when you see it up close. I love it!
I remember watching these reflections at Bell Gorge just before sunset and taking the occasional photo when the wind would change or the colours changed. I sat there so long somebody asked me what I was doing. Just soaking the place up, I told them. 🙂 Usually I quite like the smooth ‘liquid gold’ reflections. But these were more like the brush strokes of an artist and a little more abstract.

After a busy 6 months prints and canvases are coming very soon, promise. Looking forward to finishing the new website and putting a few things in motion.
If a picture speaks a thousand words my new Gibb River Road calendars tell a story 6 years in the making.
6 years of fun and games exploring the Kimberley. 6 years chasing the light. Sunrises and sunsets. Flat tyres and rough roads. All condensed to 12 pages and 48 photos. What a journey. And what a place to call home!
Of the 3550 calendars printed in May I only have about 150 remaining so get in quick.

Sometimes beauty is in the details.
As photographers it’s very easy to run ourselves ragged hunting for the big shot – the hero shot. But sometimes there’s something much more beautiful right under our nose. Like the reflections of late afternoon light on burnt Kimberley sandstone. Blue and orange and black.
It’s not the photo most people would walk away with from Bell Gorge but it’s these little details that keep me captivated and keep me falling in love with the place time and time again.
Don’t forget to open your eyes and slow down long enough to lose yourself in the details.
