Kimberley Prints | Coming Soon

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.

30×45″ Hahnemuhle fine art print on Photo Silk Baryta 310gsm. Overall dimensions including framing: 100cm x 137cm.

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.

 

Kimberley Prints coming soon…

It’s official… My first Kimberley print has shipped! And it happens to be one of my favourite (and less obvious) photos of the Gibb River Road at sunrise, taken from the top of the Precipice Range. Really chuffed with how it turned out. 24×36″ Hahnemuhle fine art print on metallic photo rag 340gsm. She’s a beaut! 🙂 Thanks to Peter in Melbourne and Leonie. Hope you enjoy it, Peter!

Keep an eye on Facebook (@GaryAnnettPhotography) for more. New website for Kimberley prints, canvases and calendars coming very soon.

The Sound of Silence

Kimberley-Waterfall-Gary-AnnettThe Kimberley after dark is anything but silent. Yep, there are moments of perfect stillness and a distinct lack of manmade noise but generally ‘the bush’ is a cacophony of Mother Nature at her best.

Here on the Fitzroy River dusk is accompanied by an orchestra of birdsong not heard most of the day. And when the sun sets and the full moon rises over the Fitzroy’s still waters a whole new soundscape comes to life. The call of cicadas is everywhere, pulsing and chirping in perfect symphony. Wallabies occasionally thump on the riverbanks. Micro bats flutter overhead. Fish – or crocs – occasionally splash in the river. And a pair of Barking Owls call back and forth ever so gently. On the Munja Track a lone Dingo howls, frogs croak and Blue Wing Kookaburras cackle and laugh. At Kooljaman waves crash on the eastern beach, a gecko chirps, and a gentle breeze rustles the dry grass. The darkness of a perfect Kimberley night is anything but empty and anything but silent – it is pulsing with life at every turn.

Discover The Kimberley | Aerial Drone Video

Kimberley-Drone-Video-Australia-Gary-Annett

Check out my latest drone video from the spectacular Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Every year for the last 5 years I’ve clocked up about 6 weeks exploring the Kimberley’s dusty, corrugated roads and beautiful gorges in my free time. This process of going back to places at different times of the day – and different times of year – builds a familiarity that feeds my photography and video work. This latest video is a collection of footage shot over that period and helps set the context for all of the adventures and misadventures that I’ve enjoyed along the way.

The Lure Of The Kimberley

Pentecost River

What is it that draws me back to this place? It’s a question I wrestle with time and again, as I am now, camped next to the Pentecost River in the East Kimberley at the end of my 6-week trip.

The Kimberley, of course, is different things to different people. For some it’s a holiday and a place to escape cooler climates down south. For others it’s a pilgrimage of sorts – a tradition – like the father and son on their way to Kalumburu for their bi-annual fishing trip. For others, like Ken Duncan’s photography tour group, it’s a great photography workshop of sorts. And of course, for a lot of people, it is home.
