This is a theme that I love. Flowers are the most beautiful forms of nature and just ask to be admired, loved and photographed.
Western Australia in the springtime is a mecca for flower lovers. We spent August to October in 2010 slowly travelling along the west coast immersed in the most incredible display of flowers you could imagine. This area has the most diverse collection of wild flowers in the world. The shape, texture, form and colours are a visual feast. From huge swathes of one variety spreading to the horizon to the tiny orchids and small, petite flowers that hide shyly under other foliage and have to be searched for. Stop at the side of the road, wander in every direction and every step you take opens your eyes to more flowers.
These are photos of just a small sample of the many varieties we saw, I do not know all the names, so I hope you will enjoy the colours, textures and amazing forms of these Western Australia wild flowers.
Browse through the “Let’s be wild” site, if you enjoy these photos make a comment on the “lets be wild ” site and I maybe chosen as having the most enjoyed photos by viewers. You will also find some excellent posts on this subject. Maybe you have some flower photos you would like to share with us…
