In April this year (2012), my daughter and I attended a landscape photography workshop at Karijini National Park. It is centered in the Hamersley Ranges of the Pilbara region in northwestern Western Australia. The surrounding rocks are part of the Banded Iron Formation. These rocks are probably some of Australia’s oldest and were formed on the sea-bed which geologists estimate occurred over 2.5 billion years ago.
Apart from the surround spectacular landscape, Karijini also features numerous Gorges that have been carved out by ancient river systems. A truly special place and well worth visiting. We stayed at the Karijini Eco Resort which was great.
The level of image-making was outstanding from all participants, and it was fantastic to share time in such a wonderful place as Karijini with a group of like-minded people.
Every year Peter Eastway publishes images from the workshop. See the Better Photography Spring 2012 edition for this years contribution.
