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.

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.

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.

Cape Naturaliste seascape looking south towards Sugarloaf Rock.  This coastline is a series of bays, beaches and headlands. Some are more protected, some are more rugged. The waters here have passed a crossroad of the Indian and Southern Oceans - they're cool, wild and clean.

I love these amazing Banksia cones, such vibrant colour so perfectly illustrating our wide sunburnt country.  They have the characteristic prickly, scratchy nature of the Australian native plant.

Meelup Beach is on the eastern side of Cape Naturaliste and is a little bay with white sand and crystal clear water. This early morning image was taken in the middle of the dry hot West Australian summer.

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.

Crops of rocks sit on the sand at the waters edge on the western coastline of Cape Naturaliste. Indian Ocean waves crash offshore and a big blue Australian cloudscape slowly drifts by.

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

Blue sky and whispy clouds - the view from the iconic Busselton Jetty around noon on a perfect summer day.  It doesn't get much nicer than this down south.

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.

In sprintime throughout the southwest, every paddock is dotted with haybales drying in the sunshine waiting to be brought into storage for summer.  The lush green paddocks turn to gold so quickly.

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.

Just managed to capture the sun before it dipped into the clouds, got a great lens sunburst - (using the old photographer's trick of a small apperture).  I love the river of gold reflecing off the surface of the water with the tiny silhouette of someone fishing in their dinghy.

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.

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.

I was lucky to capture this amazing sunburst through the clouds towards sunset time at the Busselton Jetty.  It lasted only 10 minutes before the sun lowered and the cloud formations changed.

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 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.

Crops of rocks in orange, gold and charcoal against big blue Australian summer sky.  Throw in the cool blue waters of Meelup Bay and you have a perfect contrast of colours and textures.

I find the veggie patch provides me with lots of macro photo opportunities because we let most of our vegetables flower so we can collect their seeds.  These beautiful little buds are from an onion chive, just before it blooms.

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.

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.

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.
