I just dropped into Kununurra for a couple of days of repairs and restocking after about 3 weeks on the Gibb River Rd and the Kulumbaru Rd in the middle of the Kimberley.  I’ve got so much new stuff to show that i barely know where to start, and i’ve run out of time now, so i’ll have to just put a couple of favourites and leave the rest til the next internet zone…

The Mitchell Falls opened this year only a day ahead of me on the Gibb, so i was able to get up there after thinking i would have to skip it this year.  The road was so badly damaged it took the road crews months to make it passable again after the biggest wet season on record… ever!

I was very keen to see Mitchell Falls with this much water, so i was very happy when the road opened just about the same time as i arrived at the turn off.  Excellent timing really, and excellent work by the road crews in very difficult conditions.

Many many more images to come…  I just need more time or a sallelite internet connection.  Then i could sit under a tree by the banks of a beautiful Kimberley River and blog all day…

All images shot on the Canon 5D Mk II and a selection of excellent Canon Lenses…
