This is the last of my posts on Karijini National Park. Kalimina Gorge really was one of my favourites. Such a pleasant walk along the base with plenty of small cascades to keep the photographer in me happy. I think it was where I got my best shot’s and my personal favourites aswell. I seemed to get the right light. My first trip into this gorge was mid afternoon, and the second was early morning. This gave me the opportunity to shoot completely different scenes. Compositions you wouldn’t even look at in the morning were just glorious in the afternoon.
The first image here was my favorite of the trip. It was on my morning trip when I saw the small cascades and small grass tree. The reflections behind were magical and I loved the ghost gum reflection surrounded by intense red light. It’s completely different to most Karijini shot’s which I think is why I enjoy it more then my Kermit’s Pool image- which as i’ve stated it is just the “normal” composition.
This next shot here jumped out at me once again on my morning shoot. There were stunning jagged rocks all pointing towards this small waterfall and reflections. I really like the texture in the water and then some awesome reflections to go along.
This image was taken on my afternoon trip. I was at the waterfall directly at the base of the stairs and to the right trying different things without much luck. On returning I saw this scene right from the path. It made it interesting for the people coming along it! But I really liked this reflection and the reeds. I used a bit of fill in flash to light the reeds slightly as the rocks on the far cliff face were extremely bright. Really restricting my composition to some extent.
