Good Reading : April 2006
46 goodreading ı APRIL 2006 Andrew Gregory has been a passionate photographer since his schooldays. To produce the stunning photographs in his book Colours of Australia he travelled widely around this vast continent, seeking out parts that the majority of people never see – deep canyons and gorges, endless gibber plains, hidden jewels of fairyland foliage in a harsh land, remote headlands and beaches. His photographs reveal the glorious diversity of Australia’s colourful landscape, from the deep blues of the ‘big sky’ to the lush greens of forest and woodland, the bright yellows and oranges of sand and rockface and the opalescent hues of running water. Books like these allow those of us who probably won’t spend months trekking to out-of-the-way beauty spots around the country a glimpse of the pleasures we’re missing – and perhaps some will be inspired to take that trip after all. It’s all out there waiting. colouring book The eroded limestone pillars of the Pinnacles Desert, Nambung NP, Western Australia gleam eerily under a full moon.
