On the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River ...

A winter's morning rises over the sleepy hamlet of Fitroy Crossing in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.

A beautiful sky and silhouette.

Looks like the kind of sunrise one wants to sit and watch with friends, cup of coffee in hand.

Wow, Julie! I knew I could depend on you to present us with magic photographs from your Kimberley Tour. Keep 'em coming.

Today's silhouette and yesterday's reflections are just superb.

Glorious - hand held or tripod? I know I'm asking a lot of questions but I'm off to Broken Hill and Lake Eyre in 3 weeks and I need to try and match you - difficult but I'm going to try.

Hand held. The important thing with this one was to get the angles right. I have a range of shots but a step to either the right or to the left ruined the composition. Once again, the colour was achieved by careful use of f-stop.

I have lots of shots of birdlife - that was the greatest challenge. To get the light right, to catch them in flight and to compose it the way I wanted to. That is a skill still in progress.

Which group are you going to Lake Eyre with?

Colour is magic!

Very dramatic, but telling me it is early morning spoils it for me ... I just don't cope well with morning ... would prefer to think it is a sunset.

Lovely colours and silhouette. I was impressed with how high the buildings were off the ground to cope with floods in the wet season.

Julie said...

Joan: s'oright ... I have two sunsets just for you!

Diane: Yes, agreed. At FC the accommodation was a treat and well off the ground. And what about those flood markers before the Geike Gorge cruise where they were above the waiting rotunda!!

Absolutely gorgeous sky and silhouettes! Definitely a "sigh" moment!

The lightning is awesome - so delicate.
