Sunset at Busselton - this was a Spring evening walk along the beach, I captured the last rays of the evening as the water gently washed around the rock groyne, the sun setting over Cape Naturaliste.  What caught my eye was the reflections of gold in the sand at the water's edge.

This tiny posy is flowers within a flower.  It's a commonly found perennial and like most tiny flowers, when viewed up close it displays a beautifully detailed structure that only the birds and bees get to see .

This wetland area was burned by an arsonist a few years ago.  The beautiful skeletons of these trees bathed with the golden glow of early morning sunshine and the magnificent blue skies are reflected so clearly in the shallow water.

View of Castle Rock from rocks at the water's edge -- crystal clear water, rock pools to explore and if you feel energetic, you can climb over Castle Rock for magnificent ocean views

This is blossom from a Lillypilly tree in my garden.  These wonderfully delicate and graceful blossoms will shed and be replaced by bright red edible berries, which can be made into jam.

These silvery ghostly trees stand in groups in the middle of the Margaret River, some have fallen.  They've been here for quite a few years, perhaps the direction of the river changed some years ago, and swallowed up the land where theses trees were standing.

This photo was taken from within the Margaret River mtb trails network known locally as the Pines.  These beautiful Karri trees are not growlng as densely as they were 'back-in-the-day' , but there are still remnant pockets of these magnificent trees in Margaret River and south towards Boranup Forest.

It's not easy to find native flowers blooming in the middle of summer.  I found this little blossom that's gone to seed in a shady area of bush on the Meelup walk trail.

The Vasse River at Wonnerup - this is very early autumn and it hasn't rained for months, the clouds build up and look promising, but as yet no rain has fallen.

This is early morning at Meelup, a small bay on the eastern side of Cape Naturaliste.  It's well known for it's beautiful beach, rocks and rockpools -- there's also walk trails between Eagle Bay and Castle Rock through to Old Dunsborough.

The Margaret River, this image is taken from the shady walk-trail to the east of the townsite.  The river passes through the town and continues it's course down to the ocean at Prevelly Beach.

I often find the bud of an emerging flower more interesting than the bloom itself.  I love to observe the shoot unwrapping itself - the flower emerging and presenting itself to the rest of nature.  It happens quickly and the bloom can deteriorate rapidly, it's only a matter of a day or so before it's past it's perfection.

This golden grass seed is basking in the late summer sunshine.  Found just about everywhere, grass seeds are drying out and getting ready to burst into green life as soon as it starts raining again in autumn.

I didn't have to go far to capture this amazingly graceful bloom as it's flowering right outside my front door.  This tiny grevillea is a native Australian plant and entices bees, ants and nectar feeding birds.

Whenever you venture to the beach at Busselton, your view will always include the Busselton Jetty as it stretches 1.8km north into Geographe Bay.  On this sunny spring day, there wasn't another person to be found on the beach, just me to enjoy the glorious clouds in the big blue sky.

I found this lovely flower blooming in the Australian Native Garden section of the Kings Park Botanical Gardens in Perth - this is a single bloom, flowers within a flower.  Amazingly, this bloom went through three transformations from budding to seeding, each stage looked completely different to the previous, each stage exquisitely beautiful.

It was a bit of a hike but it was worth it to pop out from the trail at the top of Wilyabrup Cliffs, situated between Gracetown and Yalllingup. Glorious views of the Indian Ocean, a place to sit and think of nothing but life in the moment and enjoy the sounds and smells of nature.

Early morning sunlight almost peeping over the top of sand dune, grasses and rocks near Meelup, at Cape Naturaliste

This wetland area was burned by an arsonist a few years ago.  It's wonderful to see the regeneration and nature coming back to life after such destruction.

Margaret River is well known for it's wine and surf, but it also has some of the most lovely forests within walking distance of the town.  This is within the Pines mountain bike trail network.  The smells and sounds are so wonderful, it's one of my favourite activities to ride or walk in the forests in this region.

The Busselton Jetty is the most photographed icon of Busselton, every sunset photographers are there with cameras on tripods to capture the sunset over Geographe Bay.  It's very peaceful and my favourite time of day to walk at the beachfront.

Margaret River and the Yallingup region is renowned worldwide for surfing -- this break is at Cape Naturaliste in the area locals call the Dark Side of the Moon.  The rocky shoreline is awesome along here, the wind and waves have carved amazing rocky structures over millions of years.

This pink bud is tiny and the plant itself was covered in masses of them.  At first glance they looked very ordinary, but up close with the macro lens, their true beauty was evident.

I went walking in the lightly falling rain on the Whicher Ridge near Busselton during the wildflower season.  The most amazing flowers were everywhere to be seen -- my eye was caught by this bright green plant that, in contrast to all the lovely wildflowers around me, didn't have an exotic bloom.  The tiny raindrops were caught on it's wide leaves, just sitting there perfectly formed.
