Unusual Rock Formations
As many of my travel site viewers
know, I am fascinated by interesting rock formations.
I'm addicted to them, I guess. So I decided to
start off with this collection.
I traveled to Australia again for
the month of October to further explore the Kimberley
region of the state of Western Australia. I have
been there before in 2004 but hadn't seem the famous
Gibb River Road that stretches for hundreds of
kilometers between Broome and Kunnanara. See
More information about the trip can
be found here.
Aboriginal Rock Art
After two past trips to Australia, I made it a point
to capture as many examples of Aboriginal rock art
as I could. Luckily both tours featured hikes to
view these interesting, extremely old examples.
Here's a good
article for more information. And here's
with some of the same photos. Google 'Australia Aboriginal
||Flightseeing and exploring
Plateau in the far NW corner of the
Kimberley region of Western Australia. Luckily, for
photographic reasons the helicopters had no doors.
I was able to shoot almost straight down. Also...
I was cooler for 30 minutes! After a bit of hiking
around at the top of the plateau we flew out over
the end of the peninsula and back along the Mitchell
over the Bungle Bungles 2006 This was done
in a small helicopter with NO doors, which was
great for photography!

Kununarra to the Bungles in 2004
Here is specific information about the 'adventure'
I was on.
Day Kimberley Complete with APTouring
Gorge - Day 13 of the above trip.
My 2004 photos of the same trip.
I usually shoot groups
of photos so that I can make up these various galleries
or slideshows. but there are always a bunch of left-overs
that don't make a logical grouping. I've added a
few more captions than I usually do also.
Great Ocen Road -
revisited. I had visited this area back in March
of 2005. It was wonderful to go there again ...
a photographer's heaven. That pile of rocks in
the lower left fell in about a year ago, so the
scene is not nearly as photogenic!
