Colours of Australia
The colours of Australia vary from brilliant to muted shades.
The beach at Port Douglas Qld. offers a blue sky, white clouds, golden sand, turquoise water, blue hills, and green foliage.
Crops that provide every colour from vivid green, brilliant yellow, to golden.
Native flora provides every colour of the rainbow, including the green and gold of these Banksia's.
Ayers Rock, Uluru also can range from blood red to deep purple depending on the light conditions at the time.
The Golden paddocks of ripened wheat have a beauty of their own.
I don't need to tell you how much I love the purple of the jacaranda trees.
The Grey, blue, green of our natural bushland that so frustrated the early English painters who tried to capture it using the greens of England.
The lush green of spring grass, a sight not seen often enough in many parts of Australia
This striking tree is I believe an Illawarra Flame Tree, even if I'm wrong about that its a beautiful tree.
"The wide brown land for me" is a line from one of my favourite poems "My Country".
Not all these images are from my current trip, but they were inspired by the beauty around me.
