This pink bud is tiny and the plant itself was covered in masses of them.  At first glance they looked very ordinary, but up close with the macro lens, their true beauty was evident.

The Margaret River, this image is taken from the shady walk-trail to the east of the townsite.  The river passes through the town and continues it's course down to the ocean at Prevelly Beach.

This photo was taken from within the Margaret River mtb trails network known locally as the Pines.  This particular trail, called Big Pine, is beautifully flowing with dense orange-brown soil and in Spring the trail is bordered with Arum Lillies.

I often find the bud of an emerging flower more interesting than the bloom itself.  I love to observe the shoot unwrapping itself - the flower emerging and presenting itself to the rest of nature.  It happens quickly and the bloom can deteriorate rapidly, it's only a matter of a day or so before it's past it's perfection.

The iconic Busselton Jetty at sunset.  Although the Interpretive Centre is closed in the evenings, visitors are still able to walk to the end during the evening.  In summer it's lovely to walk on the jetty at this time of night to enjoy the cool ocean breezes.

I was lucky to capture this amazing sunburst through the clouds towards sunset time at the Busselton Jetty.  It lasted only 10 minutes before the sun lowered and the cloud formations changed.

This is an area which the locals call the Dark Side of the Moon, situated at Cape Naturaliste not far from the Lighthouse on the northern tip of the Capes region.  This is the Indian Ocean which pounds the coastline - the waves are perfect, it's a highway for migrating whales and other marine life and ancient rock formations are carved by the wind.

These silvery ghostly trees stand in groups in the middle of the Margaret River, some have fallen.  They've been here for quite a few years, perhaps the direction of the river changed some years ago, and swallowed up the land where theses trees were standing.

Sunset at Busselton - this was a Spring evening walk along the beach, I captured the last rays of the evening as the water gently washed around the rock groyne, the sun setting over Cape Naturaliste.  What caught my eye was the reflections of gold in the sand at the water's edge.

It was a bit of a hike but it was worth it to pop out from the trail at the top of Wilyabrup Cliffs, situated between Gracetown and Yalllingup. Glorious views of the Indian Ocean, a place to sit and think of nothing but life in the moment and enjoy the sounds and smells of nature.

This golden grass seed is basking in the late summer sunshine.  Found just about everywhere, grass seeds are drying out and getting ready to burst into green life as soon as it starts raining again in autumn.

I went walking in the lightly falling rain on the Whicher Ridge near Busselton during the wildflower season.  The most amazing flowers were everywhere to be seen -- my eye was caught by this bright green plant that, in contrast to all the lovely wildflowers around me, didn't have an exotic bloom.  The tiny raindrops were caught on it's wide leaves, just sitting there perfectly formed.

Cape Naturaliste is on the western tip of Geographe Bay in southwest Western Australia, it has small pristine beaches and rockpools, large clusters of ancient rocks bathed by the pure waters of the Indian Ocean.  This is Castle Rock, red-gold granite rising from a perfect white beach.

In sprintime throughout the southwest, every paddock is dotted with haybales drying in the sunshine waiting to be brought into storage for summer.  The lush green paddocks turn to gold so quickly.

View of Castle Rock from rocks at the water's edge -- crystal clear water, rock pools to explore and if you feel energetic, you can climb over Castle Rock for magnificent ocean views

Cape Naturaliste seascape looking south towards Sugarloaf Rock.  This coastline is a series of bays, beaches and headlands. Some are more protected, some are more rugged. The waters here have passed a crossroad of the Indian and Southern Oceans - they're cool, wild and clean.

This is blossom from a Lillypilly tree in my garden.  These wonderfully delicate and graceful blossoms will shed and be replaced by bright red edible berries, which can be made into jam.

Whenever you venture to the beach at Busselton, your view will always include the Busselton Jetty as it stretches 1.8km north into Geographe Bay.  On this sunny spring day, there wasn't another person to be found on the beach, just me to enjoy the glorious clouds in the big blue sky.

The Vasse River at Wonnerup - this is very early autumn and it hasn't rained for months, the clouds build up and look promising, but as yet no rain has fallen.

This pink blossom is an Australian native plant which I passed while riding on the beachside cycle pathway near Abbey Beach.  I just had to stop my bike to take a few pics, while my husband and our dog patiently waited alongside.  This plant must be very tough, as it was growing in sandy soil and flowering in the heat of summer when it doesn't rain for weeks on end here in the southwest of Western Australia.

This photo was taken from within the Margaret River mtb trails network known locally as the Pines.  These beautiful Karri trees are not growlng as densely as they were 'back-in-the-day' , but there are still remnant pockets of these magnificent trees in Margaret River and south towards Boranup Forest.

Crops of rocks in orange, gold and charcoal against big blue Australian summer sky.  Throw in the cool blue waters of Meelup Bay and you have a perfect contrast of colours and textures.

Meelup Beach is on the eastern side of Cape Naturaliste and is a little bay with white sand and crystal clear water. This early morning image was taken in the middle of the dry hot West Australian summer.

I shared this this cloudless summer sunrise with a lonesome seagull at the beachfront at Busselton Jetty.  The warming pinks and purples don't last for long, there's only about 5 minutes to capture the glow before the sky turns to pale blue.
