Lennard Gorge: A Wider View by 


Ever since I hired a ute from Kununurra and threw my swag in the back to explore the Gibb River Road for ten days in 2008, I have wanted to return to this gorge. It is, in my opinion, the most spectacular of all that I visited. It has taken me exactly three years to find the time to get there again… but I was not disappointed. It is even more beautiful than I remembered. Absolutely amazing.
The reason the gorge is so deep (according to the Dept of Environment and Conservation) is one side is Dolerite, and the other is Sandstone, and as the Kimberley was lifted by geological forces, the Lennard River cut its way down through the join.

Please view large!

    Very nice Mieke, I like the colour reflected in the water and the way it is repeated throughout the scene :-)

  • Thanks, Jen. The extremes in light and the distance between foreground/background made it a challenging shoot, but I took a few bracketed shots and some with different focal lengths so I’ll see what I can do with them!
