The Sunlit Plains Extended... by 

Okay, so I’ve ‘borrowed’ a Banjo Paterson line from his marvellous poem Clancy of the Overflow (one of my all-time favourite poems) for the title of this image, and although they’re not really ‘plains’ per se (ie. they’re mudflats!), I feel that the sentiment of the poem suits the image so well…

I really do love the Kimberley!

Derby mudflats, Western Australia.

I’m just an Aussie girl who’s a bit mad about photography :)

    Love that poem too Mieke, great comp, love that sweeping sky!

  • I actually learned to recite it when I was living in America… I was doing a poetry class that included the sharing of three poems of choice, so I decided to go the ‘whole hog’, so to speak, and I learned it by heart. Haven’t forgotten it, either!! Thanks heaps, Simone :)

    Great photo Mieke. But I fear that Clancy’s horse may get bogged in the mudflats :):)

  • Perhaps, but they’re not always muddy… at present, they’re lovely soft sand! Perfect for dog-walking ;)
