– Bells Falls –


Situated in the King Leopold Range in the Kimberley, Bells Falls is one of the most accessible gorges on the Gibb River road. A 10km drive from Silent Grove campsite, then a short 15-20min walk from the carpark you come across this oasis.
We had this place to ourselves, and as you can see, it is just gorgeous!

 

Bell Creek

Bell Creek is one amazing place. This is the first time I have been here and it was out of this world. A mate of mine and I decided after a long day we would head down here and see what all the fuss was about. We are glad we did. Just behind me, incredible waterfalls feed right into Bells Gorge. (That image is coming soon).

The Kimberley, a region that just keeps giving!

Hidden Gems

Flying over the Kimberley all you have to do is look out the window and you will see more and more incredible sites, like this huge waterfall, hidden in amongst the winding gorges in the far north west of the region.

Amazing!

King Cascade Falls

You can see why the King Cascade Falls are an inclusion in many Kimberley travel itineraries. The falls lead out into equally spectacular Prince Regent River. Another very special place.

 

– Hidden Waterfalls –

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited in to a property NE of Donnybrook. The owner knowing that the recent rains were transforming the usually trickle of water going over the rocks, to a rush of water.
As this was an impromptu visit, I didn’t have my tripod with me. So this is a handheld shot, took me a few to get the focus and sharpness right, but I am stoked with the result.

Waterfalls within driving distance of the Perth CBD!!
Lesmurdie Falls is currently in full flow. After the recent rain I highly recommend to get there and see this magic waterfall flowing at full force over the escarpment.
I do advise extreme caution though, as the walk down is very hazardous, and with the recent very heavy rains, slip and trip hazards exist everywhere.
Several locations along the walk trail give great viewing of the falls.

– In the Spray –

The falls were pretty much at full force after the latest rains, and I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to get as many different angles as possible. Where my last shot was a bit safe and just a touch up the water fall itself, this shot was a lot further up. I was sliding around trying to get my tripod steady, the spray from the waterfall was a constant hassle as it covered my filters, so every shot was a dry wipe on those.

But persistence payed off and after a solid 20-30min at trying to achieve it, I managed to fire off a few that were spray on the filter free.

 

– Full Flow –

This gem of a spot is located on the Perth Escarpment at Lesmurdie Falls National Park.
After the recent record rains if was on my radar to get here and photograph the falls at almost full flow.
Looking at the water levels, it is already starting to drop in intensity. So here starts to the countdown to the next record rains.

Staubbach Falls, Switzerland



Staubbach Falls is one of the highest free falling waterfalls in Europe. It’s found above the small mountain village of Lauterbrunnen. Lauterbrunnen is famous for the numerous waterfalls that can been seen freefalling from the high cliffs that surround the village. The area is also a favourite spot for keen BASE jumpers.
