Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

The mouth of the Willyabrup River

This image was taken at the mouth of the Willyabrup river. As we approached this spot I calculated it had been over 45 years since I had been there before! The river is running but the water is so clear it cant be seen in the photo. The black patterns are made by meneral sands (ilmenite) in the bed of the river. This photo can only be taken in winter months when the river is flowing. It is around 5k from the nearest place a 2WD car can be parked, and even the 4WD tracks are tough.

In the winter the mouths of the numerous small rivers and streams that reach the coast are some of the best places to take photos. In summer the streams are either dry or blocked and stagnant.
