Water Bush Karri Forest is a photograph I made in Beedelup National Park near Pemberton.
The hills and valleys around the Warren River region are heavily timbered. Every now and then you can find a vantage point to see through the tall forest undergrowth. When you are lucky enough to find a good vantage point you gain a greater appreciation of height and depth of the surrounding karri forest. The karri’s long vertical trunks of white or pale pink-yellow contrast with the horizontal splashes of wildflower colour.
Water Bush flowers during Spring. It can create an almost impenetrable forest understorey because it grows to heights well over six metres. You can easily recognise Water Bush it by its bright masses of tiny yellow pea flowers. These stand out brightly in contrast with the forest green.
In this image, there is also a small amount of flowering clematis in the lower right corner.
I first published this image in my large format Horizon calendar and also in my greeting cards in 1998
