We’re standing in a protected spot under the bridge where the passing traffic can’t see us. We are looking towards the karri trees and the log bridge that’s hidden by the peppermint trees in the middle ground. You can see the shadow of the bridge on the water.

We are standing in the very early morning in the summer. It’s about five or six o’clock. The sun is just coming up. It is shining underneath the karri trees and showing us a real blaze of leaf colour.

Just as Monet did, I’m using the bridge as a framing device between the more neutral colours at the top and the bottom. There’s a focus on the brilliance of the light that shines underneath the bridge.

We are standing in Margaret River early on a midsummer morning. Here is the dawn light you see just before the sun appears. The bridge reminds me of Monet.

It’s early summer before the water lilies start to recede. There are lots and lots of fallen branches across the river. The peppermint tree blossom falls into the water and the tiny little white flowers sit on the top of the water.
