Jungle flowers

At certain times of year colourful flowers adorn the trees in a local semi-rainforest an hour’s drive away. Birds feed on the nectar and the spent flowers fall from their lofty positions to litter the ground and fallen tree trunks.

Dappled light that filters through the high forest canopy provides a wonderful lighting effect.

Wild maiden hair fern

Australia’s Great Dividing  Range that runs near my home provides several ecosystems and within those, countless smaller ecosystems.  In this small landscape, an overhanging rock provided an opportunity for some delicate fauna and flora.

The Maidenhair fern prefers a moist and protected environment and the local spider can cast its web without concern of in inadvertent damage from large animals or wind-blown debris.

The result is an enchanting scene with gentle light illuminating the leaves, rock and intricate spider’s web.

Path in the grass

Near the summit of the Great Dividing range, a place near to my home I found this path through a sea of late winter grass heads. While attractive in colour, it took on a mystical feel in black and white.

Shells on wood

Like castaways clinging to wreckage, these small Goose or stalked barnacles (Lepas anatifera) have grown on a piece of driftwood.

One can only guess the ocean journey that brought them to this South Pacific shore!

This beautiful colourful photo is for sale and would suit many homes and add a wonderful point of focus and interest in any room. It would also go wonderfully with one of my other coastal closeups.

Colourful sponge

A colourful orange sponge, cast ashore on a beach on the Mid-North coast of NSW, Australia, by a strong sea.

Laying abandoned and dying….colour seeping from its outer edges. Through observation of the small things we can marvel at the intricacies of nature.

If you own a coastal home and have need for a strong art to lift a dark place or print larger with a generous frame to make a bold statement in any room.

Eucalyptus blossom

In Australia, as in many countries around the world where they have been planted and flourished, the Eucalyptus, or as we Australians call them ‘gum trees’ often have magnificent flowers.

Many flowers are very small and high above the ground, often abuzz with bees. Others, like in this photo are  grafted and have especially large flowers. This specimen was in a park, so I have no way of tracking down what hybrid this is.

Sunflower

Not all sunflowers are created equal – while the commercial varieties provide maximum seed and oil yield, others are valuable in different ways, such as visual beauty.

The beauty can be enhanced the isolation on a white background. This clean and bright image would look great printed and displayed in any home to bring some sunshine into any room.

Field of bails – Felton, Queensland.

Felton, on Queensland’s Darling Downs has some of the most productive soil in the world. This means it can grow crops with better yield than most soils which means it is very important in the greater scheme of food production.

It is also a place that for a number of years was threatened with destruction by the resources boom. Fortunately the efforts of locals won and mining has retreated.

This field of large round  bales, the secondary resource of the main irrigated crop of, I suspect, mung beans or other high value summer crop (you can see the irrigation infrastructure in the mid-background) sit ready for loading onto trucks in the late afternoon April light.

Self Portrait

With selfies being so prevalent these days the concept of taking a self portrait is perhaps somewhat tainted.

However the process of taking a considered photo of yourself is one that allows the opportunity to test and experience not only poses but also the emotion of being the subject, something a bit foreign when you are the person normally holding the camera!

So it was in this instance. I am luck enough that my lounge has two large windows allowing for good lighting without any extra effort. So it was that I could experiment with several poses and expressions.

Finally I came up with this, perhaps rather bland expression – perhaps I was to involved in the technical aspects than thinking about a favourite time or place!

Vertical living

Hidden in a tumble of fallen timber and shaded from the sun, this magic vertical community thrives. The micro-climate is influenced by its location, 1,150 metres above sea level.

The cascade of delicate grey hoods forms a uniform, resource sharing wall.
