From the ashes comes a beautiful flame

KATOOMBA, Australia

Artist's Description

I couldn’t resist photographing this pair of waratahs, they were absolutely perfect specimens. These were photographed near Mt Victoria in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia in an area that was totally destroyed by the bushfire of November 2006. The entire area is now flourishing with spring blooms and new growth.

Telopea speciosissima
(plant family: Proteaceae)
