Thread: Real or fake?
Check the rock ledge either side of the snakes head, they drop a shadow that puts the sun just right of top centre. The snake should be shadowing the roos head and chest area, but it casts no shadow at all? Mmmmm

i will say this...... i see no shadows cast anywere it could be an overcast day in which case shadows dont cast to well....
also why does everyone think the snake is soooo big there is nothing for size reference there we dont know how big that rock formation is or what sort of roo that is...... i will say its a rock wallaby which many snakes can eat a large carpet can take a rock wallaby
that rock formation looks vary kimberlys to me or even nt id say its ur run of the mill olive the wallaby also looks quiet bloated so i wonder how long it has been dead
Well you'd have to wonder about the sanity of someone who would go to the trouble of faking this picture wouldn't you?
I reckon its real
I've looked harder, it's not fake just a bit of shadow dodging in photoshop that's made it slightly "off" to some people. Dodging brings out shadow detail but also destroys depth perception making things look out of place.
Seeing that the reflection of part of the snake shows up in the water, it would have to be a very elaborate fake.

I do realise that the rock formation is real dicco as is the photo in my opinion. My comment was more about how good caveman's fake rock looks LOL.
Hello All, I'm new to this group. I got the photo the other day, it was titled "Kimberley Fishing". If you zoom in on original hi res photo there seems to be a couple of blowies on the snakes neck for scale reference. Either the snake is not that massive or the flies are?
Looks real to me.

Say the Wallaby would be about 1m from tip to tail?
That means that olive would about 3-4m.
And it's girth is about the same as the wallabies head or a bit smaller?
So it's a 4m olive with a girth the same as my wrist?
That's one skinny 4m olive.
I prefer to believe the wallaby is a bit bigger and so is the olive.Fool Injected Physhopath
The rock wallabies are right at home in those ledges and rock formations and are much smaller than the average wallaby but quite robust and would be a staple food item fotr olives etc amongst other things...no doubts at all the olive dragged the wallaby up and fully consumed it,but would love to see a pic,if you see something like that you don't just take one or 2 pics that's for sure....the wallaby being small much smaller than your regular grey roo would make the snake appear much larger than it is but no doubt that's for real and pro0bably happens quite often??

That is definitely a real snake. Fake ones have a more rubbery look to them.It is much easier to criticise than it is to create, that's why so many people do it.
looks alot like Weano gorge in the Karijini which is well known for its populations of olives and rock wallabies.
Here's a couple of pics of weano that I took in march
