Manning Gorge

mg for webManning Gorge is roughly halfway up the Gibb River Road. I trekked for 2 hours into the gorge in the dark so I could get the waterfall at sunrise. It’s one of my favorite shots from the book and can be found on page 51.

  1. That is a brilliant early morning soft light shot of Manning Gorge. I have not seen Manning at sunrise before, I think most people take off at sunrise and then arrive when the light is already quite harsh. That soft light in the Kimberley is gone so quickly!

    Crossing that river in the dark must have been interesting 🙂

    Thanks for the links as well David, have added you as well to my links.

  2. I’m pleased to be the first to post here seeing as I pested you to get started.
    looking forward to some great shots mate.

    cheers Merv

  3. Nice work Dave!

    Do I get a prize for being the first to comment?


    True North Mark!!!:)

  4. Thanks guys. I’ve only just realised that I had to ‘approve’ everyones coments. I’ll have to go and figure out how to let everyones comments appear intantly.

    Yea it was interesting crossing the river in the dark Flemming. It took me ages and I felt like I was going in circles following all those reflective markers in the dark.

    Will have some more shots soon Merv. Is there anywhere in WA that you want me to post?

    Mark if you talk to CF he might be able to inform you of your prize!

  5. Have I won something dude!! Did not even know I was in the running:)

    Now you have me being curious…should I pester the Fletch or what!



  6. Geeze I hope I haven’t mucked things up. He mentioned ‘Markie’ yesterday and I assumed he was talking about you!

  7. Looks like Flemming was first past the post, beat me by 15 min.

    He’s got nowhere to keep things now he ‘s sold up and going.

    So i’ll take the prize !!!!

  8. Where on Earth are you going to keep all your trophies Merv. You have won a lot of awards this week.

  9. They all go straight to the pool room.!!!!

  10. Soon I have no pool room or any other room for that matter, so I’ll trust Merv with the prize, it will be an honour to have it on display in his pool room! Unless…say the price is money or fame, I still want those 🙂

  11. Like your work David. Beautiful scene.
