You can find Kimberley Pictures all through this website (together with lots of information about travel in the Kimberley). But that was not always the case. When I first started this website most people were still on dial up, loading times were sloooow, therefore any photos I used on the website were very small.
That was the reason I initially created this Kimberley photo gallery, to have a few pages where I could use larger pictures.
Times have changed and today you can find stunning, professional imagery of the Kimberley all over the web.
My photos are not like that. I am not a professional photographer by a long shot. I don't even like many of the professional photos, especially the glossy, artificial looking ones used in tourism brochures and for marketing purposes. Stunning as they are, they do not portray what you will find when you visit us.
What you can see on my website are the kinds of photos that you yourself will bring home from your trip if like me you are an average photographer with an average, idiot-proof camera. They were taken by me or by my readers.
My aim is not to dazzle you with my photography skills or artistry but to show you where I live.
So, with that said, click your way through the ex-photo-gallery pages below or browse through the rest of the website (see "Attractions" in the top menu) to find plenty of photos from and lots of information about the Kimberley.
Pictures like these are typical of the East Kimberley. Weathered red sandstone formations, Livistona palms, Pandanus palms, gum trees, figs, acacias, grevilleas and an assortment of shrubs and grasses...
The Kimberley west coast looks different. It's still red, but the emphasis is on sand rather than sandstone. The vegetation is lower, more open, the country is dryer. Instead of gorges and waterfalls you will find beaches and the ocean.
The drive from Kununurra to the lake is magnificent, especially in the afternoon. The road windss right through and over the ranges and red, red rocks.
Different colours, different vegetation. And boab trees!
The old, unsealed highway between Kununurra and Wyndham, called Parry Creek Road, follows the Ord River. The soils along the river are different, and so is the vegetation. This is particularly obvious in the first photo.
The second picture was taken on a side track of the main road, further away from the water. You see a difference in the colour of the road. Parry Creek road is sheeted with light coloured gravel, whereas this track is in its natural state.
All of these pictures were taken near my house and show typical wet season skies with low hanging clouds. It would have been drizzling on and off for much of the day and the temperatures would have been just perfect. (The average wet season day is stinking hot.)
Maybe a photographer can explain it, I can't, but during the wet season the colours are particularly intense, everything seems to glow.
