Boats cling to the safety of the wharf awaiting the return of their faithful masters. Ken had driven past this wharf many times, and felt in his heart something was there to be captured. But conditions never seemed right, or else he was locked into some other mission of dubious importance. On this day though, everything seemed perfect. The water had become like glass as he went in close to the wharf for one last shot. He opened his shutter for an ambitious five minute exposure. Just as he finished a speed-boat shot past, annihilating the still reflections. Everything has a time. If he hadn’t taken this shot on this particular day, he would probably never have managed it. Today the wharf has a different name, and the boats are all changed. It is a reminder that places are transient things. If we don’t photograph them today, they may be gone tomorrow
Australian born photographer Ken Duncan (OAM) captures the rich ochre reds of the outback, the turquoise blue of the sea and shadowed greens of the rainforest.

Ken says “To really know a region you have to spend time absorbing its mood until you begin to relate to its mysterious and ancient rhythms”, says Ken. “I often have to return to a location again and again until I’ve captured the true spirit of the place. In that time spent waiting for the right moment, I have the opportunity to truly connect with the land. It’s amazing what you can learn about a place by just sitting in silence there.”
