Psychedelic Persuasion, Hancock Gorge, Karijini NP. Western Australia. I am pleased to announce my awards in the open class of The EPSON International Pano Awards. This is my first year entering the competition, so I thought why not go straight up against the pros to see how I go. This has worked well with 4 bronze medals been awarded for my hard work. amazingly enough they are all from the same trip to WA and the Karijini NP. The story behind the image, This was captured on my birthday, and what a birthday present to receive. Day two in Karijini with Robert Norman and Peter Ryan was a treat. taking me into Hancock gorge for what was probably the most breath taking place I have ever visited. I never wanted to leave. The journey in is a walk down a cliff with rough stairs cut out into the rock face. as you get deeper into the gorge the better it gets. This spot is not one to see if your not keen on getting wet. It involved three water crossings. the first was only knees deep the second was up to my neck the third was a swim after making our way through a constant stream of water which leads to this outstandingly beautiful oasis. When the sun reflects off the walls of the Iron Ore and Silica of the canyon the scene comes to life, Creating a Psychedelic Persuasion, as though you would want to jump straight in and see what is beyond. Don't be fooled this same spot claims one life per year from bystanders wanting to see how far they can go or flash flooding. At the bottom is a 11 m drop if you're not dead after the slide you might be after the drop. The key is to be careful and pay attention to the clearly marked signs and ropes. It's amazing how something so beautiful can be just as deadly. Big cheers to Robert and Peter. You guys made the day a treat I loved shooting along side the pros and making mates at the same time. bring on the next adventure. Product Number _V9A3254
