Rain drenched yellow guinea flowers

These delicate flowers looked so fragile, yet so beautiful, waterlogged after the rain :).

Sun Dew Magic (Drosera palida)

Sun Dew Magic (Drosera palida)

Now, that the rains have come and Winter is here, Sun Dews have emerged, much to my delight. I just love watching their sticky pink tentacles capture the morning dew and their dinner. This particular Sun Dew is Drosera pallida, otherwise known as the Pale Rainbow, and I can see why. Watching the sunlight refract from its sticky tips, creates an abundance of miniature rainbows 🙂 <3.

Earth Horizon

This is a new painting I did to go with my poem,

At night, when the sea cradles the womb of the land.

Earth Horizon

 At night, when the sea cradles the womb of the land,
rippling liquid rainbows upon the sand,
I lie back on the dunes and look up at the moon,
moving from horizon to its zenith all too soon.
I hear the hush of the sea, its murmurs and swells,
and hear its rumbling, moving waves crashing like bells.
I feel the earth pulsing beneath me,
I feel the sea moving within me,
As I watch the stars above twinkle,
in a space-time distorted wrinkle,
Upon our Galactic home, Earth,
She is our hearth!

BLACK SWAN LIGHT MAGIC

BLACK SWAN LIGHT MAGIC

Captured this gorgeous image of a black swan, swimming through shimmering star light reflections at St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia. It reminded me of Hans Christian Andersen’s story, The Ugly Duckling; as only when we have gone through our tribulations and dive into our darkness can we find our light and emerge a beautiful swan :).

Shimmer Unicorn

A little poem for the magician within all of us!

Shimmer Unicorn

Shimmer Shimmer Unicorn,
runs through the snow,
through mountains and over hills,
with her horn aglow.

Chasing lots of rainbows,
she reaps what she sows.
In her dreams,
she often sees,
the future that will grow.

Some things I love

Some things I love

This compilation, is a snapshot of some of my Art. It moves between Australian Summer bushland, an Egyptian waterlilly and watery reflections, to fractal blossoms, butterflies, starry dolphins and children; to the strength of a dragon and a lion. The photo at the bottom left corner is me at one of my children’s fantasy workshops, where a small boy is being sprinkled with fairy dust… I hope you enjoy 🙂

Sunset Sea

Sunset Sea

The evening sunset glistens upon the sea,
in orange, red, yellow and copper, for all to see.
Such beauty and majesty brings me to be,
in tune to the rise and fall of rhythmic glee.

HOPE UPON A RAINBOW SEA HORIZON

HOPE UPON A RAINBOW SEA HORIZON

Hooray! In recent weeks, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, US Secretary of State John Kerry and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim have all called on countries and business to take the threats posed by global warming more seriously. Jim made what many believe was an historic call for investors to consider ditching holdings in fossil fuel companies.
Is this the beginning of a new era?
With the G20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia, this November, and The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, France in 2015, let’s hope for strong cohesion and implementation of policies to greatly reduce carbon emissions and for the use of more environmentally friendly renewal energy. The conference’s objective is to achieve a binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world. http://www.rtcc.org/2014/02/05/imf-chief-lagarde-warns-of-merciless-climate-change/

GARDEN OF THE SEA

GARDEN OF THE SEA

Come on down, to the garden,
the garden of the sea.

Where coral life breathes,
just like leaves.

With colours of abundance,
that we should not make redundant.

Rich purples, pinks, yellows,oranges and lime,
let’s not let it turn to slime.

Where angel fish, lion fish, damsel fish do,
shark, cetacean,shell and worm make a home,too.

Where crystal clear reflections, refract in rainbow hues,
let’s do our part to keep it clean, now let’s take our cue.

Southern Dart-Skipper Butterfly delight

Southern Dart-Skipper Butterfly delight

I was walking around some Wetlands yesterday, taking in the magnificent watery views with its abundance of wildlife. It was a buzz watching ducks and water fowl swimming and having fun, whilst magpie larks, parrots and pigeons glided on high or nestled in tall branches. I decided to investigate further and began to walk through the marshes where ducks nested and dragonflies and butterflies played. It was here, that I spotted this Southern Dart, Ocybadistes walkeri hypochlora, so small, yet so intricate and lovely. Once home I could zoom in and check out all of its fine details, and now I share this lovely little butterfly with you. 🙂

SUMMER HARVEST

Mother Nature gives so freely of her fruits so that we can enjoy her bounties. Let us be grateful for these gifts and give back to the Earth, in our own small way…. Bridget Cameron 🙂

PEACE STAR

PEACE STAR

At times, I need to remind myself of ‘the peace within’ when I feel swept away by external forces beyond my control. It is always deep at my centre, where I can calm my turmoil.

AT NIGHT, WHEN THE SEA CRADLES THE WOMB OF THE LAND

night set sea by Bridget Cameron

At night, when the sea cradles the womb of the land,
rippling liquid rainbows upon the sand,
I lie back on the dunes and look up at the moon,
moving from horizon to its zenith all too soon.
I hear the hush of the sea, its murmurs and swells,
and hear its rumbling, moving waves crashing like bells.
I feel the earth pulsing beneath me,
I feel the sea moving within me,
As I watch the stars above twinkle,
in a space-time distorted wrinkle,
Upon our Galactic home, Earth,
She is our hearth!

FISHY LOVE

FISHY LOVE

It’s always nice to spend a little time watching fish, as I find them so relaxing. My aquarium sprung a leak and I almost lost my Gymnocorymbus Ternetzi (Black Widows), Danios, White Clouds and Catfish. Fortunately, I have a pond, and rescued them, and now they are happy swimming around with some goldfish too.

BOURGANVILLEA MAGIC

BOURGANVILLEA MAGIC

It’s amazing what imagery can be created using mirroring. I created this magical cathedral by simply mirroring a section of of beautiful Bourganvillea, that grows over my back fence. If one looks closely, there are whole galaxies of images to be found. Can you see the butterfly at its centre? What can you see?

IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT

IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT

I’d like to think that most of the time little things matter more than the big things. When you think about it and think microscopically, most of earth is made up of space, space that we can not see, yet just because we can’t see it, doesn’t mean it is not there, and that it is not important. Far from it! Beautiful things like flowers, with their magnificent colour, design and perfume and dew drops, with their rainbow and diamond lustre are simply magnificent and free! Have a look at this gorgeous butterfly that landed on my daughter’s hand. These little things are truly valuable! 🙂

Charles de Meurville Waterlily

Charles de Meurville Waterlily

Look what has bloomed in my pond! This lovely hardy waterlily ‘Charles de Meurville’ is an exquisite free-flowering cultivar with star-shaped, lightly scented flowers held above the water surface. Its innermost petals are deep fuchsia while the outermost ones a pure pink. The centre is filled with orange stamens, attractive to many passing insects. It is such a delight.
