Spring in Perth catchup!

It's been ages since I have blogged so I do apologise! I have been busy and getting out and about with my photography and popping down south for a nice trip away... He's what I have been up to:
Above is one of the project that I taught in June at the Brisbane Expo, lots of Collections White Vintage in the mini printers tray - easy and a great project to create using all of the Collections elements!
Whilst I have been out and about during late winter and early spring, I have managed to photograph many Western Australian Native Orchids and Wildflowers during my travels. We are so spoilt here with more than 12,000 different kinds each having particular months in which they appear. It's such a treat when you see a new species that you haven't seen before. Some plants will continue to flower until December.
Last weekend I had a wonderful time with my daughter Dani, and her handsome horse Leoakee on a photo shoot. He was being very still in this shot as he had his eye on another horse in the distance. I took so many shots that afternoon and it was such a lovely day.
A great catch up with all of my brother and sisters kids/partners and their children recently, there was only one nephew missing, such a great day to see everyone and get this lovely pic of all of them which is not easy to get them all in the one place as one of my nieces lives in Esperance.
My nephews son Levi, who has the brightest smile and he lights up the room with his gorgeous face, and he kept all the adults well exercised that day!
From one of my trips down south, the black and white is of the Harvey Estuary and the sunrise, which actually looks like a sunset is of Meelup Beach at Yallingup, Cape Naturalise. I used a filter on my lens to create this look!
