I just spent a week in the Amazon rainforest in the Manu NP Area. It was fantastic. This is my first post of images. The monkeys were impressive especially the Red Howler Monkeys and their amazing calling early in the morning and late afternoon. Spider Monkeys clamouring around the canopy were also very special. ... See MoreSee Less

It has been awhile since I posted something about wildlife or a favourite region. Soon I am going back to the remote and beautiful Kimberley region of North-west Australia. This will be my 12th expedition as a naturalist to this amazing region, one of favourite places on this planet.
Why do I love the Kimberley region so much?
There are so many reasons: The remoteness of this wilderness region (you cannot get there except by sea), the ancient and spectacular geology (2.2 bilion year old sandstone including world famous anticlines), the way the light changes on the sandstone cliffs on King George River, the huge tidal range (up to 10 metres), the extensive mangroves complete with estuarine crocodiles, a good diversity of coastal birds (including several majestic birds of prey), mudskippers, fiddler crabs and so much more, the rock wallabies zooming around the sandstone in the early morning light, the humpback whales leaping and tail-slapping everywhere you look while mothers swim with their new born calves, and last but not least, the breathtaking cultural experience of visiting an area inhabited by the first Australians some 60,000 years ago and being privileged to view their art.
I can't wait to see it again.
I have posted a selection of images. I hope you like them 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
Lovely stuff Martin
Beautiful photos Martin
Amazing images Martin. You are most fortunate to have been there so many times.
Truly amazing region. May it remain remote from human interference.
