Bungle Bungles, Purnululu National Park

Over the last 2 weeks I have had the opportunity to work up in the Kimberly and Top End Region. I was guiding a group of Gap Year students showing and experiencing new areas such as Purnululu National Park. The photo above is one of the many sunsets that we saw while we were traveling the Top End. It was very hot. We spent two mornings assisting rangers clearing paths, removing cane toads, and clearing campsites. The work we did made a difference to the appearance to areas that we cleaned. In the afternoon we explored the walks. On the first day we went to the Cathedral and Picaninny Creek. The next day we explored the Echidna Chasm. There is a lot more to see. I found the best time is in the evening and early mornings. Some places are best seen at midday.

Wake and Water Drops

I spent 2 months living and working in the Whitsundays. On one of my trips around the island, I took this photo on the boat ride to a snorkeling spot. It was an experimental shot. It has turned out a lot better than I thought. I had my hand hanging over the side of the boat as we were crossing the Whitsunday Bay.

Kookaburra sits in the….

I went for a walk along the Bega River one morning and found a couple of Kookaburras sitting in the Oak tree eyeing off the food on a picnic table. They were waiting for the family to leave something behind so that they could enjoy some also.

New Years by the River

I took the opportunity to get away from the big parties and celebrations of New Years this time. I went down to Bega River and watched the sunset and the moon rise. I wasn’t the only one down there. A few people were fishing and camping along the river.

Waters Recede

In January 2016 there were two floods across the Jellat Jellat Flats when the Bega River burst its banks. I took this photo two weeks after. It takes a long time for it to recede. As the water recedes, it leaves the land brown. The water that is now left will evaporate.

Caught in a Tangle

I found this spider’s web hanging across the track. It was very hard to see. I took this photo because of the intricate detail of the web. The spider was only 5mm in size. I used the Nikon 18-55mm lens to take this photo. It worked very well for such a close shot.
