Manning Pool

During our 2005 trip along the Gibb River we stopped at Manning Pool for our first time and were struck by the beauty of it. We were on our way to Kalumburu to visit our parents and had travelled from Newman, picking up Derek in Broome, and settled camp at the Pool.

While we were there fishing, I tested out the panoramic function on my Nikon digital camera, taking about eight images, and then promptly forgetting about them. About six months after the trip, Derek mentioned he had spliced the images together in Gimp, and then six months after that I finally saw the finished product.

Needless to say, it has been blown up, framed and sits proudly in the entrance to our house. The first of many TJ & DM collaborations? Probably not, but it does look great.
