I caught this daisy reaching for the sky and basking in a bit of winter sun. It was a lovely reminder to slow down during a chaotic day!

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.

    Oh, this is lovely, Louise!! Such a great contrast between the blue and the white!

  • Thanks Meike – it was one of those glorious days that was clear but a bit on the chilly side. I love having my camera handy and couldn’t go past this one. Thanks again :-)
