Australian Wildflowers 2010

I have been haphazardly photographing flowers and scenery when ever I have been well enough to leave the house and get among it. In the main these have all been in the narrow peninsula at the North Entrance. Especially the Red Gum Forest and areas around Budgewoi like the dunes around Micheal’s Walk off Weemala St. That last because I can access the boardwalk in my little buggy.

Working on the 2010 Dunes calendar it became obvious that I had collected some very beautiful images that were not suited to that title. There weren’t enough quality images for a whole calendar so I begged a very good friend’s assistance to get back to Red Gum Forest and photographed the breathtaking spring blooms until I wasn’t able to move.

It was wonderful to browse through that contrasting landscape with it’s sprays of tiny spring blossoms among dry leaves and towering pink tree trunks and twisted branches. It revives me.

Back in 1980 something I was lucky enough to have studied bush-regeneration in this area under some very dedicated local experts

(note: If anyone gets in and looks at the calendar in Google I have been unable to identify the January flowers)
