Found this sitting in my draft folder. I know that its in Point Peron as I recognise the silhouettes, but not when it was taken or why we were there. We go here a lot though, so it may have just been a walk and the sky was a lovely colour.
Soft hues of pink and yellow green in the midday sun. I love the softness of this photo, despite the how harsh midday sun tends to be. Last day of winter isn’t too bad though, I guess. These succulents are common in the sand dunes where I live, and have the softest pink flowers. I thought I’d do something different though, since the leaves themselves were so striking in their colouring.
The photos that I’ve uploaded recently were part of a backlog of images that had been sitting stagnant on my hard drive; waiting for the day when I could bring myself to look at them. They were taken shortly after I finished studying last year after a break of about six months. It also coincided…
Posting up some of my older photos (not all, obviously) that mean something to me. Hopefully something new coming soon!
A number of years ago, my husband and I went on a driving tour through the Mid West (Western Australia) to see the wildflowers. It wasn’t as good as year as I’d seen previously, and I keep meaning to head back again, but its still a treat to see the red deserts covered carpets of pink, white and yellow flowers.
I don’t actually know what wildflowers these are, and I wish I did. I’ve always enjoyed being able to say to people who ask, what the name of a wildflower is when we come across it. This was one of the times that I found myself unable to answer. It is quite lovely though.
This was another photograph taken on the photowalk in Serpentine. There wasn’t really much in the way of views to be had, really. The walk was through some pretty dense scrubland so there wasn’t all that much to take photos of other than the many flowers that were blossoming at the time. Not that I’m complaining about flowers!
This is another photo taken on the photowalk at Serpentine in 2014. When my friend and I reach the summit we sat down in the only place that was actually devoid of ants (seriously, it was ants all the way up. Large bull ants, everywhere) for a small snack. It was exhausting getting to the top, but by the time we reached the bottom we were both suffering from jelly legs. Anyway. The rest of at the top was a welcome break, and as I was sitting there eating my banana I noticed these little darlings growing amongst some of the granite.
It was such a pleasant surprise to see them, so I took a quick photo before we stood up to begin our descent.
