You think of the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and the Boab tree would spring to mind straight away. This iconic tree are all about the landscape in the region. One of the most stunning tree’s in the country.
Another reason why the Kimberley region is one of my absolute favourites.
I spent the last couple of days in Derby before flying out to Kununurra, so thought I would have a wonder out around town and onto the tidal flats. With only a limited amount of battery left on my camera, I was able to capture only a couple of images. This being one of them, a shot of some driftwood i’m assuming that came in from a king tide
The colours of the waters up in the Kimberley region are so vibrant it’s almost unbelievable. Witnessing these colours, I had my jaw to the ground every second flying over this place.
My first time in this part of the Kimberley and I cannot wait to get back.
Just love Western Australia!
Bell Creek is one amazing place. This is the first time I have been here and it was out of this world. A mate of mine and I decided after a long day we would head down here and see what all the fuss was about. We are glad we did. Just behind me, incredible waterfalls feed right into Bells Gorge.
The Kimberley, a region that just keeps giving!
Flying over the Kimberley all you have to do is look out the window and you will see more and more incredible sites, like this huge waterfall, hidden in amongst the winding gorges in the far north west of the region.
You can see why the King Cascade Falls are an inclusion in many Kimberley travel itineraries. The falls lead out into equally spectacular Prince Regent River. Another very special place.
Im down here again for the weekend with my wife and couple of friends competing in the XAdventure, so not one to miss an opportunity to go for a shoot at one of my absolute favourite locations in the state, I headed out this morning.
Finally some epic clouds to come along for the trip.
No swell, No wind, just the right temp. Yep it was pretty perfect.
My happy place.
The sunset that occurred last night while waiting for the forecasted storms to arrive was nothing short of spectacular. As the sun dipped below the horizon the light hit the back of the rain and created an incredible glowing pink, that almost seemed to pulsate as the suns light hit different parts of the clouds.
It only last for about 2 minutes, but to witness it was amazing! I only wish that I time-lapsed it!
Not the strongest composition ever, but I could not go past capturing what I thought to be a special moment.
I almost missed this mornings sunrise, but thanks to my wonderful wife who leaves for work quite early saw the potential, and gave me a call on her way out and said you might want to get up for this one.
I am glad I did.
Whenever I head to the south-west I always try and shoot Sugarloaf at least once.
Arguably the most photographed spot in the area, most angles have been shot before, but I still just can’t help and make the trek here.
A chance of thunderstorms this morning brought high expectations for myself and fellow storm nut and photographer Jaden McLean but they decayed before reaching the capes, however the remaining cloud was pretty awesome.
Recently I had the privilege of shooting in the south-west with a group of photographers who I admire greatly. On one morning we headed to the pretty popular location of Sugarloaf Rock, as I had shot there on a few occasions I thought I would go for a wander around to see if I could capture some of the larger swell pushing towards the coast.
This shot shows the swell pulsing over the rocks just off the coast. Combined with the colours of the morning light, it made for a pretty epic sunrise.
I am still going through a few image from last weekends trip down south with Stuart, Tina and Shirley. This one coming from Sugarloaf Rock, showing a very nice consistent surf break.
The south-west has arguably some of the best surf in the world, and this was a small day. If only a surfer was on the wave, you would be able to get a sense of the size it was coming through at.
Wydalup Rocks in another magical location in the South-West of Western Australia. A shot here not longer then a month ago and the sand I am currently shooting on was not there.
It is amazing how much can change in such a short amount of time.
Last weekend I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to shoot with a couple of incredible creatives, visiting a few different location around the Dunsborough region.
The waters around Little Beach at Two Peoples Bay are out of this world. Even with the cloud cover we had at sunset last night, the water still shined an incredible turquoise colour.
I could go on and on about this place, but you have to see it for yourself.
I’ll post of pano of the whole beach when I return home.
I headed to Two Peoples Bay yesterday evening with Shawn Hayward & Peter Coe. The sunset provided some incredible light, and we arrived just in time to capture it.
Mount Manypeaks is just to the east of the national park, and looks to rise up straight out of the ocean.
Another magical location on the south-coast.
The south coast of Western Australia is constantly being shaped by the relentless force of the Southern Ocean battering the cliffs. Strong winter storms bring the swells right up to where I was standing. Kind of hard to imagine on days like this.
I headed back out again with Shawn Hayward down here in Albany.
We arrived at Emu point, and it was pretty busy, people walking their dogs, kids running up and down the beach. Not the most ideal scenario to set up for a few photographs. However as the sun set, the crowd departed and left the beach pretty much vacant.
I hope you like my effort from last night.
