After a few days of harsh conditions in WA's South West, I returned to Sugarloaf Rock for one last time in the unlikely hope of getting some colour in the sky. The ensuing 4 hours were probably the hardest, most impossibly challenging conditions I've ever faced as a landscape photographer. The vicious winter wind blew so hard that I could barely maintain my own balance, let alone take my hand off the camera for even a moment. Sideways rain soaked every inch of me and my gear, even in short breaks between squalls, the sea spray made keeping lenses and filters clean near impossible.

I stood and waited. Finally, as the sun slipped behind Sugarloaf, some cloud to the South began to break up and catch the last rays of the dying sun. The clouds lit up pink and gold as I witnessed Western Australia's finest wild light, standing exhausted, exhilarated and alone.
