The Pilbara region is located in Western Australia and is home to Australia’s iron ore reserves. Other then mining, the region is consistently referred to as ‘gods country’, the reason being is its incredible landscape. It is very easy to just get lost in your own thoughts looking over the landscape from a high vantage point.
I am just biting at the bit to get back up there again.
During my time up near the Kennedy Ranges, it was so so hot. I am talking about 40-45C. I took this photo to try and depict how hot it was. The folding, cracking clay pans were everywhere.
I was up in the air a few days later while thunderstorms were in the area, and some of these clay pans turned to mud. So I was very fortunate to be able to capture this as the rain made it virtually impossible to drive/walk out there.

The Stirling Range is an area that I would love to heavily photograph. I am currently working on a project that will feature some of the Stirling Range National Park in all its glory. I have yet to commence my work there, but when the weather is a touch more favourable I will be spending a few days and nights, rugged up capturing one of Western Australia’s great national parks.
Not much as been happening with the weather lately in Perth, well not much in the way of thunderstorms or interesting weather to be exact.
The final weekend of summer is quickly drawing to a close for yet another year and hopefully with the return of autumn and winter, a more photographic weather patten may develop.
Saying that, summer has brought with it some stunning sunsets and I have a few of those on my other photographic blogsite at
In the meantime, I continue to look through the photographs I have taken in recent times and have found this one. I hope you like it.
