JUMPING in the car for an impromptu road trip is not something many people would consider doing at 4am in the morning.

For South Perth photographer Aimee Jones, this decision to hit the road and see where the whim would land her paid dividends as she found herself on the expansive sand dunes of Lancelin.

Overcome by the otherworldly quality of the area, Jones began taking photos.

“It was like I’d stepped into a dreamland, not another person in sight, neutral tones and textures so unique it really did feel as though I was standing at the end of the earth,” she said.

“As I walked towards the dunes, I had a moment of realisation; I realised I was finally living my dream life, I was able to wake up on a Wednesday morning and decide on a whim to take my cameras, drive to this breathtakingly beautiful place and take photographs at sunrise.”

Jones will keep the beach theme going when she exhibits a collection of her Lancelin photographs in a new exhibition at Kidogo Art House .

A collection of 15 of her favourite photos taken during that spontaneous trip, she said the exhibition represented the simplicity and shifting nature of life.

“I would love for people to come and see just how beautiful and diverse our State really is.”

End Of is at the Kidogo Art House until December 9.
