I live in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is rugged, remote and ancient. I love to capture moments that we may easily miss or pass by. I need to slow down, live life, notice the little things and breathe….. rather than rush to my next meeting through the artificial world. Beauty is all around us, the more you look, the more you see…
Unless stated, my images are straight from the camera with minimal processing.

    beautiful image! The colors are outstanding! :)

  • Thanks Colleen – yes these are a wonderful and vibrant flower that lasts quite a while. It took some time for me to be brave enough to get in amongst the bees for this shot – but it was worth it. Thanks for stopping by.
