Just back from my latest photography adventure to Australia’s red center. Visiting here was a first for me and a most memorable experience. I grew up in the North West of WA in the Iron Ore Mining towns and the red earth and spinifex was a homely site. It has been almost 15 years since my skin had felt the sting of the spinifex and it was a memory I didn’t need refreshing.
Uluru (Ayres Rock) is impressive for the first time visitor but it’s size and grandeur is well documented in books and from shows you see on TV. What really took my breath away on the trip was The Olgas (Kata Tjuta) this is seriously one rock formation that photographing doesn’t do it justice and seeing it with your own eyes is a must.
When shooting in the National Park there is a long list of rules and guidelines you need to obey and respect. All my images that have Uluru or Kata Tjuta in them need to be approved prior to public display or sale. These two I am safe to display as they don’t breach the rules, but they will still need to be approved none the less.
Both of these shots are digital panoramic’s taken on my Canon 1ds Mark II. I am awaiting for my film to get processed and I also have quite a few more digital shots to work through.
So keep an eye out on the blog and also my main web site gallery as there is more to come. Enjoy.
