Red Centre Adventures in Black and White

I recently joined a photo expedition to Central Australia. The “Red Centre” is aptly named – the red rocks and sand permeate every part of the landscape. Even just spending a short time there it gets in everything, your shoes, your camera bag under your nails. Red does dominate, but is subdued in the harsh daylight. However, in low light at either end of the day, the hues and tones are of a truly beautiful. The landscape is spectacular with a rich palette of colours.
When travelling the vast distances between campsites and shooting locations there were numerous opportunities to make images despite the glare and harsh light. This is a hard country. The landscape is hard, tough and sharp.

I have chosen various Black and White treatments using Snapseed which I feel suit the images. Dont worry, I am also working on a coloured set of images too – these will be in a future post. These images feature my three favourite subjects: clouds, rocks and trees – I hope you enjoy.
