And now for something a little different.

I’ve always been fascinated by dandelions & finally got to photograph one.
This one reminded me of some celestial starlit cosmic image.
I may replace this if I see a better shot in the gallery but it will be similar to this.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
