Rising Elephant

by on Aug.22, 2019, under Life, Photography

I’m back on the south side of elephant rock for sunrise take #2

I’d mentioned previously that whilst very pleased with how the shots had turned out from the previous morning… I’d wished I’d shot from closer and from a lower angle for a more “impressive” perspective

So this morning I did just that…

Many vary favourable images ensued…

Beehives

Mirima National Park, also commonly known as Hidden Valley is on the edge of town at Kununurra

This is a hidden gem of the region. Offering a sample of those beehive rock formations made famous at the Bungle Bungles (Purnululu)

In this case however this is a short 5 minute drive on bitumen from town rather than an excruciating multi hour slog on rough dirt tracks to get to the bungles 🙂

Elephant Rock @ Sunset

by on Aug.21, 2019, under Life, Photography

Elephant Rock is a large rock formation on the edge of town, officially known as Carlton Ridge but nicknamed locally both Elephant Rock and The Sleeping Buddha due to its shape and size

My parents allowed me to take them to the other side of Elephant Rock this time to shoot sunset over the Ord River with the drone

DJI Mavic 2 Pro L1D-20c + 28.0 mm f/2.8 @ 10.26 mm, 1/160 sec at f/5, ISO 100

Got a very lucky break with this shot. A speedboat was coming down the river at just the right time and in the exactly the right spot for me

Crop Abstracts

We were touring the sights of Kununurra today

Visiting some of the farm produce areas allowed me to do some aerial abstracts over some of the crops in the region

Sleeping Buddah @ Sunrise

by on Aug.20, 2019, under Life, Photography

Before leaving on this trip I’d done a fair bit of research on locations I wanted to photograph. Some land based with my traditional camera but I also researched locations I’d like to photograph via drone

Purple Buddha

DJI Mavic 2 Pro L1D-20c + 28.0 mm f/2.8 @ 10.26 mm, 1/40 sec at f/2.8, ISO 100 x 21 Frames

This was one of those locations. Inspired by some shots I’d seen posted by Ben Broady. I contacted Ben and gained some very useful information from him. Further research via google maps and voila a likely departure point

With sunrise about to rise on the right the skies have filled with colour and some nice clouds always helps

Turquoise

I mostly took stitched panorama’s this morning. Unfortunately you don’t get to see the final results till I’m back at the computer. The drone does however automate taking all of the required frames for you which makes things much easier

Rising Buddha

DJI Mavic 2 Pro L1D-20c + 28.0 mm f/2.8 @ 10.26 mm, 1/100 sec at f/4, ISO 100 x 21 Frames

Whilst I was mostly pretty pleased with all of the results. Those crazy wiggly waterways which first drew me to this location (when viewed on Google Maps) were as good as I’d hoped. Having looked at the images back on the computer I wished I’d shot from closer to the rocky mount and from a lower angle

Perhaps I’d return the next morning for take 2 🙂
