Elquestro Rocks

This is a quiet stretch of the Pentecost River passing through El Questro Station in the Kimberley of Western Australia.

Its was the stunning pink of the exposed rocks completing the blue reflection of the sky, set in a quiet lagoon with the cliffs on one side glowing in the morning light that arrested my attention. The painting was completed over several years from reference photos taken on location.  See the video for a more detailed description of the visit.

From western Australia tourism:

“The Pentecost River in the Kimberley region is famed as one of the best spots in the area to go barramundi fishing.


The epic four wheel drive track, the Gibb River Road, crosses over the Pentecost River and this crossing is the ideal place to throw in a fishing line. Head along a track on the north eastern side of the crossing for the best fishing spot. Experience the thrill of catching that big barramundi! But keep an eye out for saltwater crocodiles which inhabit the area – and don’t go swimming.


The Pentecost River passes through El Questro Wilderness Park and makes an ideal place for camping. At El Questro’s Station Township it’s safe to go swimming in the Pentecost River.


The Pentecost is one of the five rivers that meet at Wyndham and flow into the Cambridge Gulf. The Five Rivers Lookout offers an excellent view.”
