returning to American River

I'm planning to spend a week at American River on Kangaroo Island in mid-November,  and I've started looking at the  work  that I did when we were there during the summer  of this year. 

I'm looking at the scoping work with the digital camera  to see what would be suitable for large format  photography.  All the 5x4 negatives that I'd exposed  on the last  trip were accidentally cross processed as E-6---that  is,  processed as slide film. We weren't able to save them. 

The above picture of Red Cliffs on Backstairs Passage  is one image that I would like to reshoot in large format.  

I did a lot of scoping of the base of the  cliffs  on the foreshore,  but  the cliff top views work better.

Kangaroo Island: salt lake

I've upgraded the operating system of the 27" iMac to Mountain Lion, now that it has a new hard disc courtesy of Apple. I can now connect with my computer in Adelaide.  I've also upgraded  some of the photographic software--Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro--that I regularly use in my digital darkroom.   

This picture  of, what I take to be  a salt lake,  was snapped near D' Estrees Bay on Kangaroo Island. It was next door to   the Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park.  I  had been looking for some salt lakes  with easy acces without much success.  We just stumbled upon this one  on our way back to American River.  

It was the last  afternoon of our holidays on the island. We left for Adelaide the next day.
