Paul Hoelen spends much of the year travelling around Australia photographing landscapes and teaching photography workshops.
When he isn’t travelling he calls Tasmania home.
From the photographer, Paul Hoelen:
After recently teaching a workshop in Karijini National Park in Western Australia he had the opportunity to explore the area.
The day I arrived, despite not having rained for almost 6 months it just started pelting down with no end in sight!
With no opportunity to fly whatsoever.
I was on the phone three times a day to the airport with a plane on hold at 20 mins notice for any window in the weather, yet day after day after day, the rain kept coming!
Just as I was about to give up on the very last afternoon I could spare, a sudden window opened up.
I raced out there, helped pull off the door and blasted out across the incredible vista into what tuned out to be even beyond my wildest hopes photographically.
It meant I had to do the full 1500km return drive in one day, but it was totally worth it!”
