Spring colour

52 rolls

Spring might be one of my favourite times for photography. The bursts of flowers give life to windswept and desolate bushland. Often I will return to places visited only a week before to look for more flowers I may have missed, or that are coming into bloom. Some days I might shoot a roll walking in and another walking out.

Many of the flowers in the bush are tiny, but standing out from them is the waratah. Growing bright red and large, seemingly dancing to the eye on tall stems in woodlands, it is a delight to find this flower in the bush which is the emblem for New South Wales.

Photos were taken hand held with an Olympus OM-2 using a G. Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 lens with extension tubes on Fuji Superia 400.
