21 Jun Honouring A Legacy For The Ages: Dale Sharpe, DK Photography
While we as friends of Dale, and the community as supporters of Dale, grieve for his early and all too soon departure of this life. Its important for us to cherish and pay homage to this amazing man’s work. Its fair to say that the photography world will forever have an irreplaceable hole, left by Dale, due to his simply phenomenal eye for detail, and his energy to strive for literal perfection in a near impossible environment to achieve such feats. The amazing thing is, even though it was nearly impossible… he defied the odds time and time again, producing masterpieces that all of us, even his closest friends, were left stunned and wanting more.
Arguably the greatest of loves from Dale, outside of his family and friends, was his love of storms. He traveled often all around Australia seeking out not just the most intense moments of mother nature, but also the most graceful and photogenic moments – often creating perfection out of nearly nothing. Dale often travelled across South East QLD and North East NSW for storms, but also ventured in Inland NSW, Inland QLD, rural South Australia and Southern Western Australia where his love of crops, dead trees, lakes and storms as a combination was maximised. Even if we could’ve shared every single photo posted by Dale, it wouldn’t give his work justice as he had hundreds of photos sitting and waiting to be posted for every single one that was posted. His love for storms took him to the pinnacle of storm chasing, tornado alley, where he captured scene you could only dream of. Using the words “perfection”, “amazing”, “masterpiece”, don’t do it justice. But here are some of his works of art that took the world by storm.
