NT STARS IN GEOGRAPHIC NATURE PIC AWARDS

MORE PICTURES FROM THE AUSTRALIAN GEOGRAPHIC NATURE PHOTOGRAPH­ER OF THE YEAR COMPETITIO­N

- GARY SHIPWAY P29: MORE WINNING PICS

PHOTOGRAPH­ER Tim Wrate risked life and limb hanging halfway out of a plane to capture the Northern Territory like it has never been seen before.

The effort has been made more worthwhile after his aerial images of the NT won the Portfolio Award at the 2021 Australian Geographic Nature Photograph­er of the Year Awards on Thursday. The images depict desolate wastelands contrasted by sprawling wetlands teaming with life, flood plains punctuated by twisted rivers and the vast expanse of the almost untouched outback. Wrate faced stiff competitio­n from 2200 entries by profession­al, junior and emerging photograph­ers from 17 countries. Two of his images were captured on a charter flight from Darwin over Bynoe Harbour, and the remaining four on a charter flight from Katherine to Ngukurr over the Limmen Bight and Roper River area of Southern Arnhem Land at the end of a long dry season.

Wrate said capturing the landscape from the air was about providing new insights into familiar scenes.
