Photographer's Note

The Gibb River Rd cuts across through the northern parts of the Kimberleys in Western Australia. The road surface is mostly dirt except for a bit at either end of its 660km length and for a few hills for road trains. Despite some improvements it is still a rough road with lots of river crossings (some watched over by crocodiles). The road is only open during the dry season and early in the dry it is strictly for high clearance 4WDs. The lean on the tress is due to the massive amounts of water flowing in the wet season.
When we arrived at the river we had the pleasant surprise of seeing 2 horse riders splashing across. It turned out that they were being filmed for an advertisement. The range in the background is the Cockburn range. Taken late afternoon. This photo was taken at the Pentacost River crossing near the eastern end of the road.
If you want to get an idea of the isolation of the location have a look at the map - you'll have to scroll out a bit to get anything much showing on the map.
