Murray Sunset NP | NSW | Australia

This was shot mid-morning at Lake Kenyon - one of the pink Lakes in the Murray Sunset National Park. This area has a rich history of harvesting pink salt throughout the 1900's - especially during war times in order to aquire salt to preserve meat for the troops. It's incredible how much that salt used to be valued during those times. Commercial operations have long since stopped though.

Much of the shore line is littered with footprints from curious travellers, but I was fortunate to find this patch of crusty salt patterns that was completely undisturbed. Getting out and exploring from behind the lens was cathartic for me, helping me come to terms with the passing of a close family member at the time (This was taken last year in May 2019).

During COVID lockdowns it really sinks in that the whole act of landscape photography is just as much about getting out and about and exploring as anything else. Whether I've got some nice frames on the SD card or not at times is really just a bonus.

Hope you are all doing reall well.

Malaghans Rd | Otago | New Zealand

I stopped here after descending from Coronet Peak to get my bearings and plan my route to the East coast. The poplars and yellow road markers caught my eye so I took a few steps onto the road and grabbed a quick frame. I was on the side facing oncoming traffic (NZ drives on the left) and it was a fresh and still morning where you could hear the infrequent cars coming from a distance - so felt reasonably safe - although it's not something I advocate. Since I did 3500kms in two weeks in NZ, I felt obliged to get an image that captures the feel of the "road trip", always wondering what's over the next rise and around the next bend, and taking delight in the scenery as it unfolds.
