With sunset approaching it was time to head to the skies again and photograph this lovely spot from the sky in golden light

At the Saddle

by on Aug.17, 2019, under Life, Photography

We decided to pass by the rest area we were originally intending to stay at and drive a little further to this lovely spot

Called Saddle Creek Rest Area it sits amongst these lovely trees under the nearby range

Victoria River Crossing

by on Aug.16, 2019, under Life, Photography

Leaving Katherine we were finally heading West towards Western Australia

Heading West

DJI Mavic 2 Pro L1D-20c + 28.0 mm f/2.8 @ 10.26 mm, 1/500 sec at f/4, ISO 100 x 3 Frames

First real place we get to is the Victoria River Crossing and the Victoria River Roadhouse. It’s about 200km west of Katherine

This is the first place heading west where those magical high red cliffs sticking up out of the land start appearing

Last time I was here (four years ago) I’d done a few nice panorama’s from the bridge. This time with the drone I could do one better with some high aerial panoramas and a nice flight down the river

Jawoyn Dreaming

by on Aug.16, 2019, under Life, Photography

Nitmiluk National Park is around a series of gorges on the Katherine River and Edith Falls. Previously named Katherine Gorge National Park, its’ northern edge borders Kakadu National Park. The gorges and the surrounding landscape have great ceremonial significance to the local Jawoyn people, who are custodians of Nitmiluk National Park. In Jawoyn, Nitmiluk means “place of the cicada dreaming”

Nitmiluk Gorge

by on Aug.15, 2019, under Life, Photography

We were staying in Katherine for a couple days so we booked on a cruise up Nitmiluk Gorge

Located on the lands of the Jawoyn people, rock art sites dot the park and dreaming stories bring the silent gorge walls to life
