Breaking Dawn…

by on Mar.22, 2016, under Life, Photography

After a very very full day the day before it was a struggle to be breaking both myself and my daughter out of bed for yet another busy day.

I’d already been up and shot from before sunrise till well after sunset the day before, not to mention the two hour drive back from Hamersley in the middle of the night for my daughter and I.

Still when you’re in one of those once in a lifetime places you have to make every second count and sleep be damned :)… My daughter decided to accompany me this morning to make the trip down Weano Gorge (a grade 5 walk – which is the highest you can go without guides, ropes and abseiling/climbing gear!). It was fantastic she was going to join me – it’s always good to have some company when out shooting – plus I’d get to share yet another incredible location with my daughter.

We actually slept in on purpose, which was a shame because this was the first day in probably months that Karijini saw clouds in the sky. Sunrise was at 6:15AM but we missed making use of the nice colour at an epic gorge location. Still we were very tired so when I crawled out of bed, breaking the sleep from my eyes, all I could do was go get my camera and take a few handheld shots as the colour was fading from the sky.

The shot up top up top was the view from our campsite looking westwards away from the rising sun at 6:35AM.

Below our campsite just before my daughter and I left to head to our morning session at Weano Gorge and it’s famous Handrail pool.
