Broome Rivers


This is one of the images I took from Ralf’s jump plane. I had my mate Con in there with me who had never been in a Cessna 182 before. I strapped him in with a Tandem harness (I was as well) and then off we went into the early morning sunrise.

He was pretty cool until I opened the inflight door, but he recovered pretty quickly and then enjoyed the sights.

Certainly a great way to cover some ground and get an unobstructed view below with less vibration than a chopper as well as 1/4 of the cost!!

  1. bloody nice pic mate, love that early morning light and colour of this image, you nailed it buddy. Th e horizon is a little off but I’m sure that is just an optical illusion :-0)

  2. Mate this is an awesome pic. It must be nice to shoot without a helicopter fish bowl in the way and the associated reflections. This image has very attractive colours and I like the curve on the horizon, adds a sense of scale. Your previous posts are also interesting particularly the fires and the eco resort, great place !

  3. I love that beautifully curved horizon . This planet is not flat and horizons are not always straight. A beautiful image that’s looks real too. Welcome to the spherical (oblate spheroid) earth society.

  4. Super nice, that is some great patterns and lovely colours!

  5. Awesome shot Mark, Have I mentioned PNG is less than a month away yet ?

  6. Really nice Mark. Great subtle colours.
    Sorry I’ve been awol for the past week. Did a quick trip to get a few more birds.
    Really like this shot!

  7. ALMOST as a good a view as you would get out of a 4WD!! Joking mate, cracker of an image.

  8. Great pic Mark,
    I love intertidal areas around estuaries.
