I'm just over three weeks into my four week trip photographing in the Northern Territory. Right now I'm at Uluru and believe it or not, it's my first visit to this part of Australia. I can't wait to share my photographs from here and my recent travels - the landscape of central Australia is truly stunning.
One highlight of the trip further north was my time at Katherine Gorge (Nitmiluk Gorge) not far from Katherine. I had been here once before, having canoed up the first gorge many years ago, but well before I was interested in photography. Sitting high above the gorge on this evening it was hard not to feel a quiet sense of solitude as I watched the sun set and the last light strike the Nitmiluk Gorge wall before me. As I photographed the sun setting I knew I had captured something special from this spectacular part of Australia.
A must visit location, Katherine Gorge is a deep gorge carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River. It is the central attraction of the Nitmiluk National Park in the Northern Territory. The gorges and the surrounding landscape have great ceremonial significance to the local Jawoyn people, who are custodians of Nitmiluk National Park. Katherine Gorge consists of thirteen gorges, with rapids and falls following the Katherine River, which begins in Kakadu.
