its said that 1% of total visitors experience Uluru during a rain event and i was determained to be part of that 1% . For months i looked at weather forecast trying to predict if there was any chance of rain on the way but nothing was happening and i was starting to get discouraged . It was one night in October in 2018 when i happened to check the weather forecast for Uluru and to my amazement there was almost a 100% guarantee for rain . I couldn’t believe my luck ! this was it , everything had aligned and now it was up to me to execute my plan and capture my dream shot .
The next day at 6:30 am i was on a plane heading straight to Uluru . during the flight there was a little voice in my head asking myself if i just made the right move but i just had to ignore that and trust my intuition. When we landed i picked up my car and heading into the park , at this stage there was no rain in-fact it never rained the whole first day i was there. knowing the first day was a compete bust i headed to my accomodation , well kinda . i actually didn’t have any accommodation to sleep in due to the fact that rooms where $400 a night and i wasn’t prepared to pay that so i ended up sleeping in the front seat of my hire car at the caravan park , this was to be the one of worst sleep i had ever had .
Day two arrived with the sounds of rain on the roof of my car . I lept out of bed ( seat* ) excited to see if there was any waterfalls streaming down the rock, but on arrival to Uluru i was disappointed to see there was only a very small amount of water. Bummer , i hung around and finally at about midday another shower opened up over the rock and water started streaming off the side , i was running around like a mad man because i know this was all i had been waiting for . I was surprised to see how quick the waterfalls loose there water , you literally need to be shooting while its raining to ensure you capture the most amount of water running off the rock.
This was such a magical experience and something that i will be chasing again in the future.
September 2018 , my first trip to Tasmania and the weather was very average the whole trip . In saying that the one good thing about overcast rainy weather is that it’s perfect for shooting waterfalls due to the light being so even and soft .
Horse Shoe Falls is a tourist hot spot so i decided to leave early one morning to hike up and beat the crowds that would normally be there . Arriving at the falls i was instantly taken over by a feeling of pure calmness and relaxation , i stood in awe of natures perfection taking in all the surrounding beauty that can only be described as some sort of enchanted pixie land .
Setting up in the middle of the stream was the best vantage point to capture and draw people into the shot . The flowing water cascading over the mossy boulders draws your into image and lets your eyes rest at the main falls then you are left to explore the scene and imagine yourself standing right here breathing in the cool air and taking in the scents of the dense forest .
