‘CHERISH THESE MOMENTS’

LOCATION :  Nature’s Window, Kalbarri National Park, Western Australia

I had waited the better part of a year to photograph Nature’s Window in Kalbarri National Park. I needed the right time of year so the sunrise would line up with the view through the window, overlooking the Murchison River as it curves it’s way around the Z-Bend. The first sunrise didn’t yield any results with not a cloud to be seen. However when I woke up at 4am to see some clouds out to the east I started to get excited. As I was driving over the corrugated dirt road into the park I could see the colours starting to appear at first light. At this point I was confident I might be about to witness something special. I composed my shot and didn’t have to wait long for the scene to erupt in colour! One of the best sunrises I have seen in a long time and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be at a place to spectacular with my camera equipment. The two days prior had been incredibly windy. This morning however there wasn’t a breathe of wind, leaving the trees in the gorge completely still. I am thrilled to have got conditions far better than I could have even asked for! Nature’s Window and the rest of Kalbarri is just spectacular. While capturing this photograph I could see two swans in the river and had already seen a couple of Kangaroos.
