Exquisite Australian Landscapes
by Helen Robinson
Helen’s Special Favourites
“The Darling Downs is the most inspirational setting to realistically capture the natural charm of the Australian landscape, in all its dry harshness and alluring beauty. Enjoy Your Journey”
I could be anywhere when a picture appears, it all comes
impulsively from the heart.
I see the beauty in the harshness of our drought covered land.
I feel the inspiration of the striking landscape. I don’t see a
picture, I feel it and part of my process is to bring that feeling
and emotion to each image I capture.
Passion for landscape photography lay inertly within my soul for several decades before a radical life change involving moving house, home, canines, horses, peach faces and other worldly possessions from suburban Sydney to rural Warwick in the heart of the Darling Downs in Queensland which detonated this passion from a pastime to an ardently new way of life. Soon afterward it became obvious this hobby had transformed into a natural aptitude for finding the perfect visual scenery thus bringing through natural light and raw emotion.
All credit is duly afforded to the unique Australian landscape and the conspicuous diversity of the Australian bush: aqua blue oceans appetisingly lapping upon golden shores, foaming waterfalls slipping fluently down sheer rock faces, barren empty deserts, trees wavering with deliberate disorder in violent winds, large rivers agitating turbulently or smaller creeks impassively becalmed, unique native fauna in their natural habitats and native flora growing magnificently despite excessively long lasting droughts. These diverse emotions stirred within made me determined craving to capture and record it all.
This inspiration is all around us, a natural beauty which surrounds us each and every day of our lives, however not everyone has the unique opportunity to explore and enjoy this serenity I have most humbly been able to. In my images, I endeavour to capture the magnificent Australian landscape in all it’s beauty, it’s harshness, it’s cruelness and all its exquisite natural colours.
The reality and truthfulness in my images, are testament to the awards that have been forthcoming, confirming the stories they tell in genuine authenticity. Awards such as Finalists in the Stanthorpe Art Prize in successive years 2016 and 2018, Grand Champion Allora Show 2015.
There is serene beauty in the harshness of our great land, we all just need to feel the emotion to capture it. I trust you see and feel this emotion and passion in all the images exhibited on this web site.
