Paynes Find

And the things you may find while scouting for wild flowers just a few hours drive from Perth on a weekend shoot with Mark Stothard … We came across this small lake while trying to find access to the big lake … Shooting the lake in late afternoon what really attracted us to the scene was the colour of the sky against the earth with the blazing sun on our back this really brought the colour of the sky and earth to life …

West Australian Wildflowers

Well it is that time of year although when the outback of Western Australia comes alive with the colours of our wildflowers. Although very brief before our scoring summer sun takes over the wild flower season brings visitors both local, interstate and from around the the world. This passed weekend I ventured out for a couple of nights with fellow photographer Mark Stothard to see if we could capture some colour. One of the first images I have so far ready is this image of the morning light bring out the amazing colours of pale yellow and pink wild flowers just off the side of the great Northern Hwy near Paynes Find. I am not sure the names of the wildflowers we saw other than they are all WA wildflower everlastings and when in full bloom is quite a sight to see in the Western Australian bush.
