After driving like a mad man for and hour and half from Kingscote on the north of the island we pulled up at Hanson Bay to the sun rising. The fires on the mainland left hint of smoke in the air and the sunrise was a fiery vibrant mass of colour reflecting off the water and clouds alike. A pretty awe inspiring morning to be on the water.
Whilst in the Kimberly I drove up to the Aboriginal community at One Arm Point and spent a couple of days up there watching the tides rip past the Buccaneer Archipelago of islands just offshore. One late morning I was watching a couple of kids fishing along the shoreline and green turtle popped up in front of me, it was flailing about in the shallows as the tide ripped out to sea until it dived and tucked in behind a rock. The colour of the water was vivid blue with aqua trimmings along the shore, a spectacular morning.
The 2009 Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards dinner was a good chance to catch up with other photographers. My prints this year scored three Silver Awards for the Landscape category, it was good to wander around and watch other categories being judged too. There were so many new gadgets at the expo this year *note to self… leave credit card at home next year.
