Rinkly Rimes said...

Your photography is superb! I could repeat the comments of commentator number One, but my blog is words aided by pictures, so I suppose we're coming from a different perspective. I bow my head in admiration nevertheless.

Well this says it all. I've always said there is nowhere in the world as beautiful as Australia and this proves it! Stunning shots. Your photographs always make me homesick for my six years in Oz.

Joan Elizabeth said...

So you are back and I am drooling, wishing like mad that I had been there to take photos like that.

JM said...

Absolutely gorgeous images, Julie!

paul said...

Nice to get a glimpse of your adventure, and these are stunning shots. #2 is my favorite, but then the blue of #1 is irresistible, and it's hard to separate them anyway.

When will we read the book?

Hood Photo Blog said...

These are all wonderful. Beautiful choices for the monthly theme!!!

Ann said...

Stunning. Welcome back! Did you buy a polariser or is it just the upped saturation?

Julie said...

I have actually taken the saturation down, leaving the contrast at medium. What I have done is used the sky to reflect off the water and lowered the aperture by two (or more) stops, which is apparent at the apex of the reflection.

I will buy a polariser though for the trip up to Cape York.

Biana said...

Oh my, These are just breathtaking!!

Hilda said...

All of your photos are gorgeous, Julie, but that first really stands out for the color. Magnificent landscapes!

diane said...

Fabulous colours in WA aren't there? The Chanbelain Gorge -magic views and reflections. You had more water in the Cathedral Gorge than we had.
