You think of the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and the Boab tree would spring to mind straight away. This iconic tree are all about the landscape in the region. One of the most stunning tree’s in the country.
Another reason why the Kimberley region is one of my absolute favourites.
Isolated late wet season storms fire up just off the NW Kimberley coast. It’s incredible how quick these tropical systems fire up and explode into the sky. Blue skies one minute, the next, thunderstorms, however one thing that doesn’t change are the ever magnificent turquoise blue waters.
The Western Kimberley region is full of surprises, waterfalls, savannah woodlands full of palm tress, pockets of rainforest, and deep gorges running with freshwater, the region pretty much has it all.
I spent the last couple of days in Derby before flying out to Kununurra, so thought I would have a wonder out around town and onto the tidal flats. With only a limited amount of battery left on my camera, I was able to capture only a couple of images. This being one of them, a shot of some driftwood i’m assuming that came in from a king tide
Situated in the King Leopold Range in the Kimberley, Bells Falls is one of the most accessible gorges on the Gibb River road. A 10km drive from Silent Grove campsite, then a short 15-20min walk from the carpark you come across this oasis.
We had this place to ourselves, and as you can see, it is just gorgeous!
Flying back into base-camp the sunset over the ranges was just amazing. The colours were so vibrant. The already amazing King Leopold Ranges stepped up another level covered in beautiful shades of orange and reds. I think I may have found a new favourite part of the state.
The colours of the waters up in the Kimberley region are so vibrant it’s almost unbelievable. Witnessing these colours, I had my jaw to the ground every second flying over this place.
My first time in this part of the Kimberley and I cannot wait to get back.
Just love Western Australia!
Bell Creek is one amazing place. This is the first time I have been here and it was out of this world. A mate of mine and I decided after a long day we would head down here and see what all the fuss was about. We are glad we did. Just behind me, incredible waterfalls feed right into Bells Gorge.
The Kimberley, a region that just keeps giving!
Flying over the Kimberley all you have to do is look out the window and you will see more and more incredible sites, like this huge waterfall, hidden in amongst the winding gorges in the far north west of the region.
You can see why the King Cascade Falls are an inclusion in many Kimberley travel itineraries. The falls lead out into equally spectacular Prince Regent River. Another very special place.
Im down here again for the weekend with my wife and couple of friends competing in the XAdventure, so not one to miss an opportunity to go for a shoot at one of my absolute favourite locations in the state, I headed out this morning.
Finally some epic clouds to come along for the trip.
No swell, No wind, just the right temp. Yep it was pretty perfect.
My happy place.
I say it over and over, the coast of Western Australia is amazing. Half the fun is just sitting back and enjoying what is around you. The sounds, the smells, the scenery, and especially the company. Yep, I love it.
Wydalup Rocks in another magical location in the South-West of Western Australia. A shot here not longer then a month ago and the sand I am currently shooting on was not there.
It is amazing how much can change in such a short amount of time.
Last weekend I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to shoot with a couple of incredible creatives, visiting a few different location around the Dunsborough region.
The south coast of Western Australia is constantly being shaped by the relentless force of the Southern Ocean battering the cliffs. Strong winter storms bring the swells right up to where I was standing. Kind of hard to imagine on days like this.
I headed back out again with Shawn Hayward down here in Albany.
We arrived at Emu point, and it was pretty busy, people walking their dogs, kids running up and down the beach. Not the most ideal scenario to set up for a few photographs. However as the sun set, the crowd departed and left the beach pretty much vacant.
I hope you like my effort from last night.
A very popular spot down on the south coast. This is the first time I have visited this location, and was surprised at how busy it was. The place was packed out. Green’s pool is a favourite swimming hole on the south coast, as it provides a sheltered area to bath without the fury of the ocean sweeping through.
The sunsets in Bali can produce some incredible colours. At low tide the rocks appear and the vibrant greens of the seaweed really start to shine.
You have to be careful here, as the surf does surge every so often and you can be swept off your feet.
It’s well worth the effort though.
