Quick single day trip to the Pinnacles in Western Australia a few hours drive north of Perth. The actual Pinnacles are found over a huge area in this mini-desert, but there is a special place for visitors where there are lots of them together. Ideally this location should be shot at sunset/sunrise, but that probably means sleeping there !
A year working at the Lake Giles Iron Ore exploration site has provided a lot of good memories, hard work and much learning.
Though many people think the operation is ‘way out in the bush’ this is no desert, steep hills and small mountain ranges combine with eucalyptus forests and dense shrub-rich creeks to make quite a special place to be working in.
Photographic oportunities are around every corner, but working from 5:30 till late evenings leaves little time for the imagination to prey on the land. Nevertheless I take every opportunity I have to document it!
