Flowers on a smokey afternoon in MtLawleyShire

More fires filled the city with smoke.  This time in the southern suburbs (MtLawleyShire is inner north).  The smoke filters down streets, filling in shadows, and reduces perspective by playing with it:

It played havoc with the lighting as well, but I caught some flowers:

a sunflower translucent with sunlight


the astonishing beauty of a white hibiscus (though it was too breezy to be trying)


The joyous scarlet of a bottlebrush type:

The limitless grace of roses.  Red:

with a touch of gold and pinky-apricot:

and this delicate pinkish-mauve:


Finally – Grevillea and a close-up of one unfurling:

and now, I must go walking.  Maybe I will find more flowers…..
