These six entries detailing images of the south-west come from a week I’ve just spent down in the Walpole-Nornalup wilderness area.


This plant is carnivorous. It catches little insects with its sticky flowers.

This native fern sits as an epiphyte on a dead stump. I’ve been staying at a friend’s house near the Deep River. The world of moist, micro nature among the sandy soiled and gently undulating hills was such an intimate treat after the bold shapes and sizes of sixty metre karri trees and open-horizoned sea shores.


Thoreau’s log-wood cabin never had it so good!
