The pristine Kimberley is quite the extraordinary spectrum of light, especially to the human eye unaccustomed to tropical saturation. Roebuck Bay of Western Australia is a playground for colours with an almost surreal mix of pindan red dirt, turquoise milky ocean and blue sky. The place was alive with birds and fish and again proves how stunning the Kimberley is, I do hope we the humans can keep it this way.
In between drinks, food and diving in the pool in what was a very lovely Christmas, Nigel Gaunt and I managed a short photo session at Roebuck Bay. I captured the above image, going for a simple layered composition where the colours are the subject. Only a 30 minutes drive out of town this bay is pure tranquility and another reason why Broome and the Kimberley is a special place in the universe. A place that must be saved.
Nice colours mate.
Keep up the fight until Barnett calls for your deportation, keep up the good work.
Thanks Thomas. I have met the core group of people up here fighting to save the Kimberley and they're resourceful and inspiring and will never give up, it is quite encouraging.
I can feel the waves lapping at my feet and the wind in my hair… Thanks for the mini-vacation!
Nice clean image Flem,
All those lovely rich vibrant colours up that way are a dream.
Thank you Tone, yes they are of a very dreamy quality.
Love it mate!
love the soft yet vibrant colours that create a nice gradient from top of frame to bottom!
Thanks Dylan. Yes the layers here makes it and I deliberately left the colours to be soft but still vibrant, shying away from over saturating everything and trying a new softer style.
Certainly captured the true essence of the landscape in this neck of the woods with this one Flemming. Amazing what a simple mix of beautiful colours can create. Well done.
Thank you very much Pete.
Those colours are insane Flemming! the contrast of the blue and red is awesome!
Thank you Tim
Great Colours in this one Flemming. You have some great photos on here mate. I have just got back from Broome and it is truly Amazing.
Thank you Ben, yes indeed Broome is quite spellbinding as is most of WA. I am just back from Rottnest Island, another slice of paradise.
Two years ago I had the pleasure of going to the Kimberleys for my holidays and fell in love with its natural beauty
I think it is wrong to destroy such a natural beauty the Kimberleys should be a Nature & MArine Parks so for generations to come the world can come and also fall in love with its natural beauty
Thanks for your comment. Kimberley should indeed be a National Park area and protected. By all means, we need the gas but process it out to sea or in Karatha. We must preserve the few remaining wilderness areas and what is very sacred country.
