Just finished this shoot and bit chuffed .. it's about a flock of wild birds Corellas marking out their tree territory before a storm hits.. Observing birds is fascinating..and humbling.💛 This one is called - '3 Generations' Staring the young Bull staring down on anyone who would dare to approach or land on "His" Flocks highest branches. His elderly Grandfather watches the bravado from below. This rung is high enough for him these days, his feathers are getting thinner and in some area's he'd noticed of late around his neck, disappeared completely. The twinkle in his eye is slightly twisted these days, more witness than beak cracker and he spends countless hours practising his ominous scowl and then forgetting why. His Grandson reminds him of his youth. Fierce, fearless and strong. Striving hard to learn the lessons of death roll and wingless drop. Like his Brother and Uncle he will learn the stories of Earth, Sea and Sky and only then to take his place at the high branch like his Father. Till then his vital daily role at the end of light is to pick the best branch for each evening and then protect it from others. Tonight with a storm in the air it was even more important. As the 3 generations stared down at me.. l just smile.. Ain't nature GREAT! #justanotherdayinwa #kimberleyecho #corella #wildbird #bird #dynasties #outbackaustralia #australianbirds #kimberleyspirit #canon #abckimberley #myabc #thewest #watourism #visitkununurra #landscapephotography #wa #eastkimberley #respectforfirstnation
Being able to get so close to Freshwater Crocodiles in the wild is amazing, normally they bolt at the sight of humans. Lake Kununurra is home to this fella and 26000 of his cousins 🐊 #crocodile #freshwatercrocodile #westernaustralia #kununurra #topend #wetseason #reptilesofinstagram #visitkununurra #straya #holidays #herping #lakekununurra #snappy #naturephotography

As a little kid waiting for Santa, I was waiting for a tropical storm to roll in that night. Huge wind and rainfall came down with a light display every 5sec. It was unbelievable. Patient I waited in my car for the eye of the storm to pass by. And as the last raindrop fell down, I drove to the highest point I could find. After setting up my camera gear, I opened the shutter and waited... BAM! A lightningstrike lit up the sky above my head. I kid you not, stormchasing is tha BOMB for letting your adrenaline levels peak!!! ⚡ • • • #stormchasing #lightning #storm #lakeargyle #thekimberlyaustralia #westernaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #visitkununurra #australia • • • #nature #photography #naturephotography #longexposure #earthofficial #earthgram #asadventure #yourshotphotographer #earthfocus #globeshotz #earthshotz #visualsofearth #earthoutdoors10k #beyondthelands #earthphotos #greettheoutdoors #theoutbount #exploretocreate #exploremore #discoverearth #earthpix
A beautiful little capture of some Sacred Kingfishers taken by one of our local wildlife photographers here in Kununurra @wildlife_kununurra He’s always coming up with the goods! It’s really hard to translate what we see on tour into footage due to our skippers not being able to film as well as guide so having guys like this around is really helpful to capture what we see everyday 😍 #ordsome
Lower Ord, just below Ivanhoe Crossing down the bush track. Getting absolutely no bites, it seemed a better idea to swim in the shallows than expend any more energy throwing lines. Damo ended up catching two decent sized barras from the Crossing wall after we moved spots.
Cathedral Gorge at Purnululu National Park is a welcome relief from the heat of the walking trail in. The surrounding rock faces make it lovely and cool and the sand is so soft you'll want to take a picnic and chill out 🥖🍗🧀🥤 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #earthoutdoors #adventurevisuals #amazingkimberley #familyfriendly #wow_australia #takemetoaustralia #wonderful_places #4wdaustralia #bunglebungles #ig_australia #eatmydust #outbackaustralia #4wd #weareexplorers #exploretheworld #welivetoexplore #travelgoals #visitkununurra #kununurra
Salty basking in the sun, while the drone watches on. Just an hours drive from Kununurra is the Keep River. Nestled just in the Northern Territory. This is a great spot to go croc spotting, wet a line, camping or just enjoy the beautiful scenery on a 4x4 adventure. @cuinthent @ausoutbacknt #cuinthent #topend #4x4adventure #westernaustralia #australia #nt #ntlife #outbackaustralia #territorylife #northwest #visitkununurra #northernterritory #seeaustralia #thekimberleyregion #australiasnorthwest #perthisok #djispark @visitkununurra #dronephotography #dronestagram #crocodile #crocodiles #thekimberleyaustralia
That feeling when you find the most beautiful waterhole in Kununurra. 😍🙏 📸 @lifeofme
When Tess messaged me just before Christmas that she wanted to do a family portrait under a Boab tree somewhere off the Gibb River Road with the Cockburn Ranges in the background l knew l was going to like her straight away.❤ That area is where l worked as a Ranger at El Questro Wilderness Park. It is without question one of my favourite places on Earth. Tess went on to say she didn't want them to be too visible in all of the photos but the actual landscape be the main focus. 🌟 The best time to shoot Cockburns in my opinion is dusk. As the descending light hits that jaw dropping range it just glows right back at you in appreciation of LIFE itself. The emotional sensation it gives you the first time will never wain,. nor is it possible at this level of raw beauty. l needed to keep in mind Tess and partner Gus had two little ones. The temperatures in December are in the high 40s everyday.. and both bubs were under 2 years of age. Even at dusk it would still be at least 40° Long way from anything out there and even more isolated in Dec as most tourists have left and even ELQ is closed. You need to prepare for anything if you go bush (even just for a half day shoot).. eg. if it rained we could get stranded by flooded roads easily. So: l always take extra food. Make sure you all have so much water you could have a bath. And full medical kit including at least one snake bandage. Take extra fuel in a Jerry can Tell at least one person where your going and when to expect you back And finally look at the BOM satellite images on the net just b4 you go. There is No phone or internet service on the Gibb so, if there's any issue. It's your issue and yours alone. We postponed once due to grey skies and insight from Swampy Rob who lives out there.. thanks Rob xx Then it bucketed down with the first big dump of the wet season the day b4 our next date. We headed out anyway.......

Reflecting on how beautiful life is in the Kimberley. #MiddleSprings wasn’t running fast, but enough water has been through to clear it out. It was deep, clean and beautiful. The 7 meter jump was also a lot of fun. Welcome to Wet Season in the Kimberley
'The only thing constant is change.' The saying could not be more true, especially this week. I'm stripping everything out of the rear of the Troopy to make way for the next big modification.

WHAT A VIEW!! Flying high over the Lake and views of the Resort (can you see us??) Have you experienced Lake Argyle from the air? Perfect timing now with the scattered waterfalls too!! 📸 @herlifeofadventure
Magical wildlife encounter on the short walk to Bell Gorge Falls. Crossing a creek, this Olive Python - Liasis olivaceus - was swimming in the stream beside my feet and the stepping stone I was standing on, before slithering out of the water and onto the bank to explore the Pandanus. In photos 2 & 3 you can see it reaching up to explore exposing it's pale underbelly. Growing up to 4m long, Olive Pythons are Australia's second largest snake. This one is just a juvenile! Very cool encounter with a non-venomous snake. Python in the name is the clue. Did you know that instead of venom, pythons use constriction to kill their prey? Gibb River Road in the Kimberley. Put it on your list and thank me later. . . . . . . #gibbriverroad #kimberley #kingleopoldranges #waterpython #liasisolivaceus #python #snake #reptile #reptilesofinstagram #snakesofinstagram #bellgorge #australiansnakes #blackheadedpython #olivepython #herpingaustralia #liasis #visitkununurra #westernaustralia #icwest #tourguidelife #justanotherdayinwa #outback #wamuseum #waparkswildlife #trailswa #ilovereptiles #pandanus #kimberleyfauna #kimberleyreptiles #reptilesofaustralia
Kununurra is a local Aboriginal word meaning ' meeting of waters'. The town was established as the service centre for the Ord River Irrigation Project in 1961. #kununurra #visitkununurra #ordriverirrigationscheme #seeaustralia #seeaustralia_wa
The Ord River Diversion Dam constructed in 1963 335 metres across and comprises 20 radial gates weighing 96 tonnes each. Lake Kununurra receives water released from Lake Argyle and provides irrigation for 14,000 ha of farmland. #ordriver #ordriverdiversiondam #ordriverdam #kununurra #visitkununurra #seeaustralia #seeaustralia_wa
The Grotto is a deep gorge located between Wyndham and Kununurra. At this time of year there is water flowing down the huge waterfall at one end.

You get a real sense of the scale of Lake Argyle from above! Did you know that if the Lake reached it's maximum capacity it would be holding 35,000 gigalitres of water! & it would cover 2072 square kilometers 😱 Beautiful capture @herlifeofadventure . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #landscapephotography #lakeargyle #wonderful_places #wow_australia #amazingkimberley #earthoutdoors #adventurevisuals #takemetoaustralia #ourplanetdaily #outbackaustralia #travelgram #thisiswa #travelgoals #australia #kununurra #visitkununurra
The Ord River should be at the top of your to-see list when you visit Kununurra. The views are breathtaking! 📸 @madisonmuellerart
Yellow Kapok - Cochlospermum fraeri - is a common flowering tree of the Kimberley. Named after Charles Fraser, colonial botanist and first superintendent of the Sydney Botanic Gardens. For the Jawoyn Kimberley aboriginals the Kapok flower is a calender plant that indicates when freshwater crocodiles are laying their eggs which can be collected for food. The fluffy 'cotton' found inside the seed pod that follows the flower has both decorative uses during ceremonies and practical use as a pillow stuffing. I think it's a pretty flower.
