A photograph of the dramatic Mitchell Falls has taken out the top prize in this year’s Kimberley Photographic Award, which was announced recently in Derby.
Craig Williams of Broome was the Kimberley Photographic Award 2017 overall winner for his image of Mitchell Falls, titled The Plateau (below).
Mr Williams, who is a marine ranger with the Department of Parks and Wildlife and an avid amateur photographer, said the image summarised many of the elements he loves about the Kimberley.
