With the luxury of time on my hands I headed north determined to take things a little easier on this trip. Usually I rush from location to location, driving all night, hiking by torchlight to get ahead of the dawn, then a quick nap in the car and onto somewhere else for sunset, ignoring hunger, cold, heat, and the ever growing need for a shower. This time would be different, I told myself, I might even rest somewhere and sleep inÖ Yeah right, who was I kidding? Itís all about the light, and with clouds forming and the forecast good I knew I was in with a chance.

Long Jetty is great little spot. Iíve whiled away several evenings there before, waiting for something to happen in the sky. This time it finally did and in a big way. Every time Iíve been there the water has been incredibly still so any action in the clouds is mirrored perfectly. People walking along the pier can be an issue, but a little polite request is often all it takes to be granted some time alone with the subject.

Further north, I found Canoe Pool in Newcastle. The beach baths here are very scenic, and I count myself lucky to have got this shot devoid of people despite the early hour. As it was I had to again work some charm to have the scene to myself. The light was actually quite ordinary until the sun crested, then it suddenly caught fire for what seemed like seconds only. Fortunately Iíd been standing glued to the spot for the last hour and was ready with the shutter release when it happened.

Dorrigo was my next port of call. Familiar with the falls from previous trips I knew I had to get there early, like the crack of dawn early, well ahead of other visitors, but even then I was reduced to pleading with people to wait when my window of preferred light arrived. Who would have thought that a landscape photographer would need people skills? The theme continued in the Blue Mountains at Leura Cascades, where again I nearly lost the shot waiting for everyone to leave.

Gibraltar Range National Park on the other hand, had no such issues. In fact if anything, some company might have been nice given there was zero mobile reception, excessive heat and the Camry was now fairly long in the tooth. I stayed in the park a few days scouting locations and waiting for the right conditions. Finally getting a shot I was happy with I headed for home, stopping in Sydney to capture one more classic view of the bridge on the way through.

Almost 5000kms more on the odometer, and my beloved 20yr old Camryís last trip was complete. So many good memories with this vehicle. Itís been my home away from home given that I live in it while away. My bedroom, living room and dining room. Never failed me once in nearly 500,000 kms, despite sending it into battle down some seriously scary tracks normally reserved for more rural automobiles. It's crossed deserts with sandy ďpuddlesĒ lasting kilometres, climbed through snow and ice thick enough to make it invisible come morning, and fought valiantly over bottom scraping off-road culverts to carry me forever onwards. Camry I salute you my friend, may you find peace with your next owner. My new steed is a Subaru Forester, much hailed by adventure seekers on a budget and should also provide us with a good family wagon. Iíll report how that goes in my next instalment.
