The morning is warm and humid. There is little wind and the sun has yet to rise. The colours are soft and gentle. A most beautiful and special feeling it is to be here. It is the mighty Hunter River of the Kimberley, Western Australia and home to one of my favourite images from our epic two weeks of True North adventure. Captured a short time after sunrise, I like the gentleness of this image. The faded colours, the ancient majestic Kimberley rocks and the soft palette of blues in the clouds.
This is a single image with moderate processing and a slight texture. Featuring a soft gentle look and muted colours it won’t fare well on the internet I fear, but I like it. As I previously said, I am taking my landscapes in a new direction and love to experiment. I shall wish to be put to sleep should I ever loose the urge to learn and change.
PS. As we returned to True North after a mornings hard work we learned that it was pancake morning. Fortunately lovely Rihanna had saved some for us, these are the best pancakes in the world. I had 6 large pancakes with syrup and almonds and two coffees (simultaneously, one cup for each hand, I kid you not). Do not attempt this unless you possess superpowers.
