+Red Nomad's recent image of the view across the flooded Ord river at Kununurra sparked a memory of the time when myself and my partner travelled up the Gibb River road from Broome… back when we were foot loose and fancy free.. ie no kids 🙂

Anyway, back in the day i had this sony point and shoot camera which I took with me – even then in my pretty naive and ignorant photographic state I saw this scene and relised how beautiful it was, as such pretty easy to take a nice shot – I am not quite sure what on earth the composition was about – i looked at it tonight and then forehead slapped myself at all the other possibilities I could have had if I knew what I know now.. then.. make sense? nope.. don't worry 🙂

Here it is and thanks again to +Red Nomad for the memories.

  1. That sure is a great location +Gerard Blacklock​! Your comment makes perfect sense! 😉 Would love to see what you'd come up with now! Will have to check out +Red Nomad​'s post. She hasn't been apoearing in my notifications or stream for a while now – don't know what the go is there!

  2. Something quite spooky about drowned trees in the water. Very nice. I really like the rippled reflection of the tree in the water. I just posted a shot of some drowned trees as well.

  3. Fantastic! And thank YOU for the inspiration 😀 I've got a few missed opportunities too, but every shot is a step further on my photographic journey – I think of them as stepping stones to where I am now (still not as advanced as you, haha). Also remember that to people who haven't seen your best work, this shot is still pretty awesome! Have a great weekend 😀

  4. Thank you so much +Gerard Blacklock – so nice of you to visit my blog! All those pix were taken on my one and only Kimberley trip in 2012 – I'd had my first (and only) digital camera for about 6 months (replacing a defective film camera I'd had for 20 years). It'd be interesting to see the difference between the shots if I went there again now! Maybe I'll see you there someday 😀
