I’ll be living and working remotely in the North Kimberley for 5 and a half months. For all things Kimberley, Mitchell Plateau and Wet Season photography shenanigans you’ll find me posting over here: www.lifeontheplateau.com.au

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.

 

 

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.

A Surprise Around Every Corner

Fitzroy River

From the air a uniform tree line of eucalypts stretch as far as the eye can see. The landscape can appear flat and uninspiring. But zoom in, look a little closer, and there are hidden gems around every corner. Quiet reflections in still creeks. Gently cascading waterfalls just out of sight. And ancient rock art calling to us from a distant past.

And yet from a distance all of it is hidden. All of it lies tucked away at the end of dusty roads in one of Australia’s least developed regions. It is a place with many names in many languages – named by those who first stepped foot on virgin soil, Australia’s first people.  For us – those who follow in their footsteps – it is The Kimberley. A landscape rich in natural attractions, history and culture.
