    Graham Earnshaw

In mid-2020, I took a morning flight in a small Cessna over the Kimberley coastline of north-western Australia, in the hope of capturing some beautiful and unusual aerials. Conditions were perfect - the sun had just risen, there were some small fluffy clouds around and the tide was way out, which I was wanting to offer up some unique and captivating tidal patterns and textures. The soft morning light bounced sublimely off the sand-bed and the meandering waterways etched in the sand, making for some stunning imagery. These images clearly prove Mother Nature is truly the world’s foremost artist.

I am a photographer living in beautiful Perth, Western Australia.My personal favourite style of photography is landscape and travel (combining two loves is a real bonus). But more recently I am enjoying pushing the boundaries between photography and art, with a particular emphasis on movement in imagery and especially that of the ocean, of which we are so blessed with here in Australia. And my other newfound love is aerial photography. This aerial vantage point for photography opens up a whole new way of capturing at the extraordinary beauty of Mother Earth.
