The photos in this series all come from a single trip into South Australia over the course of a week. Driving 10 hours straight I managed to arrive at Murray River Big Bend well ahead of the dawn. My progress, slowed to a sedate pace through the wee-small hours, was punctuated by moments of excitement when the inevitable kangaroos made an appearance. My tyres a little slimmer I finally pulled into town only have the GPS ask me, in an eerily friendly voice for that time of the morning, to “please board ferry”. Incredibly one materialised out of the dark, its operator floating into view like the hooded spirit of purgatory, despite the hour.

After a couple of hours searching river banks I had nice scene composed, but it required twilight so I spent the day lying by the water, sleeping and reading in the shade. When the sun finally set I was not disappointed. The cliffs, already colourful took on a bright orange glow and cloud, ever a rare commodity in this part of the country, decided to drift on by right on cue.

Originally I’d then planned to head for the Flinders Ranges and stay there the whole time, maybe hike up St Mary’s Peak, that kind of thing. Instead what happened was that I returned to Bunyeroo Valley for the umpteenth time over many years and finally got some great light. However less than an hour later a mighty dust storm made the entire Flinders region invisible, and it stayed that way for days.

I escaped to the south, heading into Adelaide to shoot the city lights then further south again onto the Fleurieu Peninsula. I hiked up and down the rolling green hills of Second Valley looking for a vantage point, much to the interest of some locals who could observe me from their porches and give a friendly wave while I toiled. They probably wondered why anyone would be mad enough to come to a place that says “relax” with every roll of its waves, only to spend their time fighting up cliff tops. Finally I decided on a scene and shot throughout the sunset. The weather was perfect, with golden light filling up the valley and turning the water a marvellous hue. Great way to end a trip.

Around this period I was also commissioned to take some shots for a forestry company to make their trees look pretty. It ended up being one of the hardest weeks work I’ve ever done. Up at 4:30 am each day to shoot from pre-dawn all day right through into twilight. The week culminated in a helicopter ride. With the door off, I was able to hang out and shoot straight down capturing some nice patterns in the landscape and giving their trees an interesting angle. Not having shot from the air before it was quite exciting, though I was sincerely glad when the week was over and even happier after several days post production for 500 odd images was finished. A small selection of the work can been seen on the Commissioned Photography page.
