“I Walked onto a Landscape That I Could Imagine Mars Looks Like”

We decided to explore the coastline of Broome and took a turn off at Gantheaume Point. We heard there were some amazing dinosaur footprints out there. We took a right off the path and walked onto a landscape that I could imagine Mars looks like.

We sat down on a secluded cliff, and as I looked up, my girlfriend was sitting cross-legged out on a rock looking at the ocean. The coastline really stood out to me. The colours mostly; the blue of the sky, the turquoise of the water, the gold of the sand and the red of the Earth. Such an amazing palette.

In this moment, I let all the stresses of my daily life go. For a split second I really appreciated how lucky I was to be experiencing it.
