This image depicts the magnificent rare white waratah flower, known as ‘Wirrimbirra White’.

The New South Wales waratah (Telopea speciosissima) is a large shrub in the Proteaceae family. The waratah is endemic to New South Wales in Australia and is the floral emblem of that state.

Captured in spring at Robertson in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia.

Canon G12, as is.

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.
