Landscape photography from the air really is the next best thing. I took this image on the way back from an aerial shoot over a power station near Karratha, and was lucky to have a pilot that was was keen for some sight seeing! This is Pannawonica Hill & the Robe River, just outside of the mining town Pannawonica. Not much to see in the town, but the scenery here is quite unique for the Pilbara, almost Monument Valley looking. I love the depth the light adds to this shot.

  1. Flying in a helicopter hanging out the window with a camera is just too much fun. But I find landscapes from the air are hard to make interesting, things are too far away. Unless you get close like you did, that first image if bloody amazing!!! Love it!

        Merv’s right, Karijini really has attracted a lot of photographers this last year!

        Blame CF for that…
