American “Outside” magazine recently featured one of our Ord River shots in a feature on their 2013 “Outside Travel Awards”. They awarded the Kimberley’s Kununurra “Best Adventure Hub” for its proximity to the Bungle Bungles, The Ord River, pictographs, El Questro and Camden Sound Marine Park.
The Ord River image was taken during a wet season helicopter flight between Christmas and New Year 2008. The East Kimberley had recently enjoyed heavy rain, the results of which can be seen in the image. The country was a vibrant green, and it still remains one of my favourite shots. We spent two full days shooting and filming, utilizing two helicopters and a fixed wing plane over King George Falls, beginning just before dawn, and filling several memory cards and many hours of tape on the way.
