Kennedy Range Bound

by on Sep.30, 2019, under Life, Photography

After two nights in Carnarvon we headed west to Gascoyne Junction and then north to the Kennedy Range National Park

Neither myself nor even my parents had ever been to the Kennedy Range, so this was all going to be new

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

During the trip we saw quite a lot of large raptors (eagles, kites, etc). Usually just perched on the tallest trees or even tall anthills (where they were sometimes the tallest things in the area). Sometimes also feasting on the roadkill at the side of or on the road

Some of them were very large (2m wingspan) which is pretty impressive to see when they are just a few metres from the car as you drive past

On the way out to the Kennedy Ranges we saw these interesting looking plugs, mounds and hills off in the distance. We decided to stop and fly the drone over to investigate. They didn’t look all that far away but it turned out they were over 3km away by the time I got to them. This burned most of the battery just flying there and back, so I didn’t have all that long to do any photographs or video whilst I was there 🙂
