Atlantis Falls, Kimberley, WA:
There are many pockets of paradise in the Kimberley. This is just one of them: a watercourse swollen by the rains, with a stepped waterfall and a deep, cool pool, ancient rocks washed with ochred colour. The vegetation is a burst of green after the recent wet season downpours. We walked a long way to reach these falls, but it was worth it to reach this pristine wilderness, with not another soul in sight (and it’s even free from crocodiles!). The friend I was with swam up to sit on a rock in front of the falls, to give some sense of scale to the scene. I love the yellow-ochre rock in the foreground which contrasts so beautifully with the reds and oranges of other stones – and the blue reflected wash of the water. It is all so wonderfully idyllic.
Australian born photographer Ken Duncan (OAM) captures the rich ochre reds of the outback, the turquoise blue of the sea and shadowed greens of the rainforest.
In this exciting range of high quality Ken Duncan Jigsaw Puzzles, we give you the opportunity to enjoy the splendour and the diverse character of Australia – from the cities to the wilderness.
Ken says “To really know a region you have to spend time absorbing its mood until you begin to relate to its mysterious and ancient rhythms”, says Ken. “I often have to return to a location again and again until I’ve captured the true spirit of the place. In that time spent waiting for the right moment, I have the opportunity to truly connect with the land. It’s amazing what you can learn about a place by just sitting in silence there.”
