Last light at Munda Billabong

On the last evening at Munda farm there was no wind, no clouds but some beautiful soft pastel colours. I popped the wattle in the foreground with my flash and it brought out the colours nicely.

The white flower bush in the foreground of the second shot is a Kapok bush which were used as fillings for saddles and pillows back in the day we were told by Dogga Thompson. Dogga was a wealth of knowledge of the history of the area, as well as the flora and fauna in the area.

    Hey Mark, great shots. Nice use of flash, I wouldn’t have known you used it if you hadn’t said, came out quite nicely. Looks like an awesome place to visit, despite the unfortunate event that have taken you there.

    • It is a beautiful place for sure Dan, with lots of history and 550,000 acres to explore, so we only scratched the surface really!

      I will go back sometime next year and get more of a landscape take on things.

  2. Nice pastel hues there Mark – They really have that Western Australian feel to it with the red dirt around these peaceful billabongs.

    Nice photos Mark, definitely worth spending some time there to capture more landscapes.

    • We have now been asked to generate a website to promote tourism at the farm Peta, so there will be opportunities for photogs to go there and shoot!

      Stay tuned!
