All in Nature

Wildlife in Wyndham

If you’re into your wildlife photography, add Wyndham to your list of Places to Go…from the cute rock wallabies at the Five Rivers Lookout, to the abundant waterbird life at Malgu Billabong; from colourful gouldian finches found right near the caravan park to the good old saltwater crocodiles found anywhere near water, Wyndham’s got it all.

Nature vs industry on the Burrup Peninsula

To stand in Deep Gorge, surrounded by deep red boulders etched with the world’s largest and most important collection of petroglyphs (Aboriginal rock carvings) dating back half to one million years, is breathtaking. It’s a quick-fire way to make you feel insignificant in the big picture. To turn 180 degrees and be confronted by millions of tons of metal structured into a huge industrial plant just a few hundred metres away is heartbreaking.

Beautiful Bougainvillea in Carnarvon

There’s something so tropical about the bougainvillea - we started to see it everywhere once we reached Yalgoo and headed into station country. Whether it’s surrounding caravan parks in Carnarvon (especially the Capricorn Caravan Park) or brightening up run-down station yards and sheds, it puts on such a show. I think this is the first time I’ve ever tried to photograph them.
