30 YEARS PHOTOGRAPHING CAPE YORK – MEET KERRY TRAPNELL

20 Nov

Portland Roads eastern Cape York Peninsula

Far north Queensland is a banquet for the senses. There’s a feel, a buzz in tropical environments. Hear the frogs going crazy after rain, the day-time bird song and the shriek of the curlews at night. Slow down, and let your eyes feast on the scenery. The tropical flowers, the red dirt of Cape York Peninsula, the half-light world of the rainforest and the dazzling expanse of the savannah country.

It’s stunning country and it’ll have you reaching for your camera over and over again. But you do have to slow down and get the feel of the place if you want to see and photograph everything on offer. Look beyond the surface, use all your senses and take time to let what you’re seeing speak to you. I know it sounds a bit like mystic mumbo jumbo – but here in EffinCue, it works.

Are you getting my best side?

If you’ve ever seen pictures of this part of the world, chances are they were taken by Kerry Trapnell. Kerry lives in Cairns and travels all over FNQ as a photographer, scientist and conservationist.

He’s been photographing Cape York Peninsula for 30 years now – he knows it well and loves it deeply.
