I liked the way that the golden colour of these two Protea flowers contrasted against the blue of the sky.

Protea is the name of a genus of flowering plants, sometimes also called sugarbushes.

This spring-flowering protea was found growing in Centennial Park, Sydney, Australia.

Canon 400D.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
