This pool is just below the waterfalL (you can see the waterfall on the far right). It must be impressive to see this river at the end of the wet season. It was a long hot walk to get to this point and we enjoyed a swim under the waterfall just after this photo was taken.
I thought I would continue the Derby theme. The first shot was taken at Wandjina Gorge – out of Derby along the Gibb River Road. It was the middle of the day, and the light was harsh and strong.
The mud flats below are at low tide, next to the Derby jetty. I love the strong colours in this shot.
Just for a change I thought I would post an image from the road near Camballin (south of Derby). I was in Derby assisting a group of volunteers by designing an affordable Wifi network for an aboriginal community at Mowanjum. It was a very successful project, and for minimal cost the community has a Wifi network with coverage of almost all 40 homes. We also installed an Internet Cafe. For most of the community this is the first time they have had regular Internet access.
These images were taken in March last year. The country was lush after the wet, and the red Kimberley earth contrasts nicely with the grass.
The rally had a short stage around the Nannup oval on Saturday. The best shots I took were of cars that were having troubles. The best drivers seemed to take a neat line through the corners, and avoid any drama. Fortunately for photographers not everyone managed as well.
This car had troubles on the RH bend with the tail hanging out wide. Although the photographer looks worried, he is just bending over his tripod! The driver managed to straighten up, but the tail kept going, and was hanging out wide on the other side as he entered the following LH bend.
