Bursting in gorgeous flower blossoms, buds and fern-like leaves (Nov.-Dec.), this shot was taken from my tree in the home garden, Innisfail, Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia.
It is the flamboyant bloom of the exotic Royal Poinciana or Flame tree, as it’s known in Australia. Also known as the Flamboyant (Delonix regia) tree. A native to Madagascar.

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”

    Such a vibrant shot

  • Thanks Kala. It’s that really ‘hot and humid, intense build-up’ time of year again, here in the tropics, until the ‘big wet’ season arrives. The garden and blooms are flourishing.

    Tropics with Christmas colours. Very cool.

  • Thanks Richard. You’re the first to pick that up re the colours. Was going to enter it into a red green & white Xmas RB group challenge but I then realized it didn’t quite fit the group’s ‘single’ flower focus! 8(
