This impressive rock was almost in the middle of the mighty Ord River as we did the fantastic cruise from Kununurra to the Argyle Dam in the tropical Kimberley region of Western Australia. The Ord River was dammed in the 1960’s and now irrigates a vast area of surrounding land.
Camera was my Sony DSC R1 in shutter priority (we had been doing some fairly high speed runs on this cruise)
I cropped this image in CS3 to add to the dramatic effect of the rock.

    Great shot from a moving boat, nice texture in the rock as well

  • Thanks very much Ken. When you consider that the trip was 60 kms and we did it in 3 hours exactly, including a 40 minute stop for morning tea you’ll get an idea as to how fast we were going at times.

    Excellent ‘freeze’ shot Peter – but I’d expect no less from this team!

  • Thanks Rosalie. The R1 performed brilliantly throughout the entire trip, except that I lost the lens hood on the last day and it’s not easy to find a replacement.
    Hope all is OK
    Take care

    Another ripper of a shot Mate.

  • Many thanks Al. I took over 100 photos on that cruise – the scenery up there is out of this world.
    Cheers

    That’s a rock in a hard place…to get to! Great shot Peter, you sure made the most of your available time and light!!

  • Very many thanks Jann (George???) There were photos everywhere as we cruised along this river and my camera was working overtime!
    Good to see you again and I hope all is well.
