Karlamilyi National Park

19 Jun 2010 at 8:08pm

More of the sunrise over “Jurrasic Park”. This would be a place to spend a few days. lots to explore and dramatic scenery. My wife told me I screwed the pooch on this shot. I added a cracked paint look to the sky and she said it didn’t work with the rest of the image  because that was relatively straight. Of course I had flattened it by then and I worked bloody long and hard to get this look. Now I have to go back and try and remember what I did! Bummer! Love this scene though. It really struck me when I was standing there waiting for the sun to do its thing.

Rudall River National Park

Hi everyone

Just returned home from what was an amazing shoot in the heart of the east Pilbara. Myself, Les Walkling, Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt, Michael Fletcher, Larry Mitchell, William Fox and our guide Tim Acker drove about 300kms inland from Newman to check out the Rudall River National Park now called Karlamilyi National Park and to spend some time with the local Parnngurr aboriginal community. We were lucky enough to have access to the community and to be able to photograph the artists and teach the local kids a thing or two about photography. It was an amazing experience and we all agreed that the land has a hold on us in an almost spiritual way. It is hard to describe unless you have been there. It is so remote and so surprising I’m sure I will be going back.

The park sits on the boundary between the Great Sandy and Little Sandy Deserts and if you decide to go you have to be self sufficient. There is no fuel, food or medical help available. A great place to go and get bitten by a snake, we actually saw a Death Adder on our first day photographing around Newman. A guide is recommended and we were lucky to have a great one in Tim who  was a great cook to boot.

I have lots more stories to tell from this trip so will gesticulate more in coming posts. Oh and BTW, it is not good to be home to the real world!
