Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Jabiru Fishing

This shot was taken on the banks of the Fitzroy River, near the Crossing Inn. I went through a gate onto the bank of the river to take the shot. Just in front of me was a large drop. While I was busy someone shut the gate (presumably hotel staff who didn’t want patrons to fall over the edge while intoxicated). I had to get back out by going under a house – it was on stilts so it was just a matter of stooping – not crawling!).

These are beautiful birds.

The trees in the photo are tilted to the right because when the river floods they go completely under water.
