The gorges of Karijini National Park are like treasures. Out of sight, above these cliffs, is the desert wilderness of the Pilbara. But in these deep half-hidden gorges – which in Karijini form an interlinking system – there is wonderful colour and spring-fed water all year round. This is the “End Pool” in Weano Gorge, which for us was a little rest spot before a very precipitous climb down into the area of Junction Pool. The mineral colours were amazing: the reds from iron ore, the blues from asbestos. In this vertical shot, the rock formations not only framed a subtle waterfall, but also provided a stark backdrop for a remarkable tree. Somehow it had established a hold, sending its roots scurrying across the rock to draw upon the moisture within.
