Images of a Big Island

St George Basin, Kimberley Coast

David Bettini and Mark Stothard have been posting some great images of their recent trip to the Kimberley and a couple of their images of St George Basin inspired me to have a look at some similar images i have on file.
St George Basin is a large flooded plain into which the Prince Regent R. flows and is home to one of the largest concentrations of Mangroves in Australia. The islands in the Basin create some interesting landscapes and photographic opportunities,especially in the early morning and late afternoon.

    • Cheers Andrew,the clouds look alright but it doesn’t really give the feel of the Kimberley like the bottom image.

  4. Great shots Tim. Really like the top image as well. And I am equally impressed that you to also know that St. George Basin has the largest expanse on mangroves in Australia. You’re a real environmentalist mate!

  5. Cheers Dave, just goes to show that a career as a photography judge would be a short one for me!
    Have done a lot of reading on the Kimberley Coast and would happily spend more time there!
