Sunrise Canning River Perth Western Australia

Sunrise Canning River Perth on a winter morning.  Whenever I wake to a misty morning here in Perth I try to get down to the river. Mist or fog transforms the landscape, isolating visual elements close to the viewer by fact that it obscures the view of more distant objects.

Mist also transforms the quality of light and depending upon the mist’s density it can have soft, enveloping light.

The disappearance of distant objects adds mystery to the landscape. Mists do not occur frequently in Perth, so I when they do I try to make the most of exploring the environment in a different light.

It is hard to believe that this waterway is within the 10km radius of the Perth CBD. A few kilometres downstream it joins the Swan River, often referred to Perth’s jewel. Yet both river systems face serious environmental issues around water quality degradation.

This 16×20 inch silver gelatin fibre based print was hand printed in my darkroom.
