Salt Creek, Coorong

with No Comments

This picture of a  melaleuca in the morning light was made on an early trip to the Coorong in South Australia  in the late 1990s.  We stayed at some cottages at a property called Gemini  Downs, which was  just north of  Salt Creek.  I remember that  it was very  cold at night and  that the heating in the cabin was minimal.

Melaleuca, Coorong

This was an edgeland around Salt Creek and  it was just outside the Coorong National Park. It used by fishermen to access the water, and from memory,  there was a fishermans’ hut nearby.

The gear that I used then was the one I used when I was starting photography over again —a Linhof Technika 70 with  a  6×7 film back, a Schneider-Kreuznach 100mm f.2.8 Symmar lens and  Kodak Portra 160ASA.
