Blue sky and whispy clouds - the view from the iconic Busselton Jetty around noon on a perfect summer day.  It doesn't get much nicer than this down south.

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.

Just managed to capture the sun before it dipped into the clouds, got a great lens sunburst - (using the old photographer's trick of a small apperture).  I love the river of gold reflecing off the surface of the water with the tiny silhouette of someone fishing in their dinghy.

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.

The Busselton Jetty is the most photographed icon of Busselton, every sunset photographers are there with cameras on tripods to capture the sunset over Geographe Bay.  It's very peaceful and my favourite time of day to walk at the beachfront.

Margaret River is well known for it's wine and surf, but it also has some of the most lovely forests within walking distance of the town.  This is within the Pines mountain bike trail network.  The smells and sounds are so wonderful, it's one of my favourite activities to ride or walk in the forests in this region.

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.

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.

I didn't have to go far to capture this amazingly graceful bloom as it's flowering right outside my front door.  This tiny grevillea is a native Australian plant and entices bees, ants and nectar feeding birds.

This tiny posy is flowers within a flower.  It's a commonly found perennial and like most tiny flowers, when viewed up close it displays a beautifully detailed structure that only the birds and bees get to see .

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.

It's not easy to find native flowers blooming in the middle of summer.  I found this little blossom that's gone to seed in a shady area of bush on the Meelup walk trail.

This wetland area was burned by an arsonist a few years ago.  It's wonderful to see the regeneration and nature coming back to life after such destruction.

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.

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.

This wetland area was burned by an arsonist a few years ago.  The beautiful skeletons of these trees bathed with the golden glow of early morning sunshine and the magnificent blue skies are reflected so clearly in the shallow water.

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.

Margaret River and the Yallingup region is renowned worldwide for surfing -- this break is at Cape Naturaliste in the area locals call the Dark Side of the Moon.  The rocky shoreline is awesome along here, the wind and waves have carved amazing rocky structures over millions of years.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I love these amazing Banksia cones, such vibrant colour so perfectly illustrating our wide sunburnt country.  They have the characteristic prickly, scratchy nature of the Australian native plant.

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.
