Hamersley Abstract – Hamersley Gorge, Karijini National Park, WA

To me Hamersley Gorge showcases how the time formed the Gorge. It’s like a giant rock that’s been folded on itself and chopped in half by a very large knife and the exposed rock reveals abstract patterns. That is why I called this picture Hamersley Abstract.

Tree on the rock wall – Karijini National Park, WA

This photo was taken at circular pool in Hancock Gorge. As the sun went down the beautiful Pilbra colours of the white tree growing out of the vibrant red rock wall captured my attention, it’s amazing that it can grow there!

Joffre Gorge

A mirror like reflection on the water in Joffre Gorge at sunset, draws you into this idyllic scene.  Karijini National Park is such a very unique and beautiful place the red dirt and the white snappy gums trees have a special feel to them.

Rainbow at Bluff Knoll, Stirling Range, WA

F5.6 @ 1/500 s ISO 200  EF 16-35 mm lens @ 16 mm.

Its definitely 4 seasons in one day in Bluff Knoll last sunday. I was taking a photo of the mountain on the other side when it started raining. It made it difficult for me to get the shots that I want as I have to cover my self from rain. But before I ran for cover I thought I saw a rainbow very briefly. I actually have a shot of it but very faint. It rained for about 10 minutes then the sun came out. Thats when I saw the rainbow came out again! It was there all along its just been hidden from the mist and the sun made it more obvious.

Bachelorette, Wild flower country, Mullewa, WA

F4.5 @ 1/1000 s ISO 200 EF 100 mm Marcro

I dont know what this flower is called, but the scene grab my attention. I was struggling to name it. It came to me “rose amongst the thorns”, as it is surrounded by this pastel blue colours flowers in the bush. Thus I came out “Bachelorette”

Spider walk gap, Hancock Gorge, Karijini National Park, WA

What an experience to fly over shark bay in Western Australia, such a beautiful place to go to. Now I can understand why its a World Heritage area.

Reagan’s Pool, Hancock Gorge, Karijini National Park, WA

F22 @ 13 seconds ISO 50 EF 16-35 mm @16 mm

Reagan’s pool is the view at the end of Kermits pool in Hancock gorge. Where the “stop” signs says do not go further. Formerly called “Plunge Pool” it was renamed after SES volunteer James Martin Reagan who died rescuing a tourist back in 2004.

Kermits Pool, Karijini National Park, WA

F22 @8 seconds ISO 50 EF 16-35 mm @ 27 mm

Kermits pool is in Hancock gorge. To get in to the Kermits pool is to walk passed the narrow passage called “Spider Walk”. A lot of people get scared once they saw the passage. But its not that bad, the gap is not that big and can easily placed both feet on each side of the wall just not to get wet from the water passing.

Joffre Gorge Lookout, Karijini National Park, WA

F11 @ 1 second ISO 50 EF 16-35 mm @ 21 mm

Joffre Gorge is just 10 minutes walk from the Eco Retreat. It’s quite a steep climb down to the pool and then to the water falls but well worth the effort. Take your bathers/swimmers and enjoy a refreshing dip in the water. There are so many opportunities to take photos’ here, it’s just a matter of how long you want to spend down there and the time of day to get the right exposure. I hope you enjoy this image from the top of Joffre Gorge.

Crossing “The Spider Walk” Hancock Gorge, Karijini National Park, WA

F22 @ 2 seconds ISO 50 EF 16-35 mm @ 16 mm

This is how to get in to Kermits pool in Hancock Gorge, Karijini National Park. These is my second shot I took when we got there. I was setting up, then I saw those people trying to climb the wall. Its a good timing after I set up my camera filter and my settings they started to climb down. The Lady with the cowboy hat was reasonably sharp even though its a 2 seconds exposure as they were climbing really slow to prevent slipping from the rocks.

Town Beach, Exmouth, WA

F8 @ 1/320 seconds ISO 50 EF 16-35 mm @ 23 mm

The emphasis of my composition on this image is at the shape and texture of the sand and rock created by the waves. Also the clear and calm water of the sea.

Useless Loop 2

F5.6 @ 1/6400 seconds ISO 800 EF 28-300 mm L @35 mm

What grabs me on this salt mine is the patterns and lines created looking above.

Circular Pool – Dales Gorge, Karijini National Park, Western Australia

F22 @ 2 seconds ISO 50 EF 16-35 mm @ 35mm

Circular pool is basically on the other end of Dales Gorge in Karijini National Park. The other end is Fortescue Falls and Fern Pool.

Exchange Train Car – Port Hedland, Western Australia

F29 @ 1/2 second ISO 50 EF28-300 mm @ 65 mm L Lens
 
I was trying to get a photograph that best describes Port Hedland as an industrial town. As we were standing there on the bridge looking at the train line a local passer by pointed out that loaded coal train will be leaving the port soon and an empty train was due in too. It was a great opportunity as we were due to leave the next morning. Trains are several kilometers long and hold 1000s of tons of ore, just imagine how long it takes to empty one and start moving again, we got lucky?
 
So I looked for the best position to take the shot. Then I look at my exposure settings, its going to be difficult! Id like to get the motion of the train to show the movement. Its 5:00 pm and the sun is shining bright! I quickly put my ND filter on to reduce the light and crank my aperture to F29! Then finally got half second exposure..That is enough to show the movement. Here it is, hope you all like it. :-)

 

Wishing Well Pool, Weano Gorge pool – Karijini National Park, Western Australia

This is not actually a wishing well, but it looks like a wishing well to me because of those circle shape rocks and clear water. These is one of the pools in Weano Gorge on the way to “Hand Rail Pool”.

 

Dusk in Hamersley Range – Karijini National Park, Western Australia

I still remember the time when I planned to take picture of this. On our way to Hamersley Gorge I’ve seen these scene, but I didnt take the picture because of the harsh light in the early afternoon. So after the photo shoot at the gorge on our way back to our camp. I made sure to find the spot where would I take these scene. Its a perfect timing.The sun was slowly setting and an early moon rise (leading up to the stairway to the moon that week) made my exposure well balanced! Muted dark red dirt of the range and glowing light at the horizon.
I could have stayed there all night watching the sunset but unfortunately we have to leave and get back to the camp and get ready for the next journey the next day. Hope you all like it!
