Broome captured in one shot

11 Oct 2010 at 9:11pm

I have a new found love for Broome after this trip. There is lots to photograph there and the holiday atmosphere is amazing. It is so different to the Pilbara. We stopped in at Karratha on the way up, it felt like I was there to work. No real nature to photograph. I hope Broome stays a tourist mecca, that is what we should all want. We need a place to relax and soak up what life is all about. Not power, greed and money, but good times with family and friends. What are your favourite holiday experiences? I bet they aren’t going on a mine tour. I think they might be watching the sun going down on a beautiful beach as these people are doing.

Nigel, Dave and I hired a heli and got some shots. I like this one, everything looks like it is stuck on to a sheet of paper on its side. Had to include the camels, it is Broome after all.

Port Hedland Aerial

Dampier Salt

Day one of our trip to Port Hedland and Form had organised a heli flight over town and the surrounding area. Of course there were only three seats going so it was decided that only the best photographers would get a flight. Luckily Tony pulled out so I got to join Les and Pete for a burn around in an old Jet Ranger. All the doors were off so we had a great view. It was Les’s first flight in a chopper and when he managed to get his hands unstuck from the sides of the fuselage he¬†¬†pinged off a few shots. Pete was blasting away on the Phase One but with vibrations and wind it isn’t as easy as I had it with the Nikon D3x. Ok as Pete likes to tell me, “they look great as an 8″x10”, I told him who wants all that resolution and who has a wall big enough to hang a pic from a medium format camera. Then he bangs on about capturing in 16 bit and I just switch off, who needs it??? I hate it when he does that, I’m not listening lalalala lalala…….
