Ormiston Pound in Highlight

Yet another image from my Favourite location here in Central Australia the one and only Ormiston Pound.

Once again I managed to get the crew up early in the morning and I mean early, 4:00am to be exact for the walk of the tour. This is the Third time that I've been up on the lookout for sunrise now and all three times I've had clouds covering the sky.

I guess that most people would be pissed but as a photographer who lives in Central Australia I truly love clouds. Mostly because they are not that common especially in the cooler months but also because clouds add an extra element to to photographs. They add interest and texture to the sky and also give off the most wonderful light to shoot in.
