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.
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.
