A Victory at James Price Point

Amazing News for all Western Australians (except Colin) and in fact all in the world who care about James Price Point and the future of the KImberley Region.  The State Governments recent underhanded stance of threatening compulsory acquisition unless the Traditional owners of JPP handed over their land for industrial rape and pillage has been declared illegal by the Australian High Court.  Its back to square one for Woodside and their pocket politicians.

This is a major Victory against the might and political power of corporations and their ability to simply buy what they want regardless of any environmental, cultural and moral rights, and it brings to light in very plain terms the sheer incompetence of the current WA state Government.

While i was staying with Nigel Gaunt after the 7day Bungle Bungles photographic adventure tour in Broome Dave Bettini dropped in for a few days on his way through to many points East and North.  The 3 of us spent a few days Philosophising together about photography over a couple of Matso’s Ginger Beers, taking pictures around Gantheaume Point and hassling David about his latest purchase, a 60 megapixel Phase One… of which Nigel and I are extremely jealous!

Photographic Tour of the Bungle Bungles 2011

Still up in the tropical paradise  that is Broome enjoying the hospitality of Nigel and Helen.  My wife is flying up today for the second stage of the Kimberley adventure, so i’d better have a shave and change my shirt… after i put up some images from the recent  7 day photographic tour of the Bungle Bungles that we returned from a few days ago.

The massive wet season that has just concluded has affected Purnululu National Park as well, with the road in only opening up a few weeks ago, and the second campsite and half the gorges remaining closed still.  This meant we couldn’t make it into Echidna Chasm or the Mini Palms Gorge, cutting down some of the sights and lookouts we could get to within the park.

To balance this up we went on a gruelling (but also stunningly beautiful) full day hike into Piccinini Creek Gorge.  Ironically, the one  who suggested the hike up the Gorge decided not to come in the end.  He missed out on some beautiful locations, but he also missed out on really sore feet that took 2 days to recover from!

Photographic Tour 2011

Back in lovely Broome after a long drive of 1000km from Kununurra after the completeion of the 7day photographic tour of the Bungle Bungles with myself and  Nigel Gaunt.  Time now to take stock, do the washing, download some pictures and write a blog entry or two.  Firstly a quick recap of the 7 day photographic tour of the Kimberley which concluded in Kununurra a little over a week ago.

Initially we intended to go across the Gibb River Rd from Broome to Kununurra on this 7 day photographic tour, camping in many of the scenic locations along the way to photograph and swim in tropical waterholes.  That was plan A.  But, the record biggest ever wet, which has filled all the waterholes to overflowing, has also destroyed all the dirt roads making many of them still impassable.  Even Windjana Gorge, one of the most popular Read the rest of this entry »
