Hi all, I thought I would put together a compilation of photos I have taken over the years hanging out with the Wattles in Australia. I have made it my mission to create a photography project that venerates the Acacia and really brings out the character of each species. I hope you enjoy them.. I've been having loads of fun using an ultra wide angle lens lately ... it is a great ally not just for landscape photography but also plant photography.. the slight warping in corners is fantastic for adding a sense of motion or 'life' to the subject.

I'll get the ball rolling with a rare and softly spoken little fellow from where I grew up in the New England area of NSW.. Meet Acacia Ingramii.. Or "Ingram's Wattle" .. Is usually found growing around the steep gorges of the Oxley Wild Rivers area.. the last photo is next to Dangars Falls just near where I grew up.. a magical place

On the gorge note, here is another beauty and one of my favourite species .. also grows in the same areas as the previous dweller, but is a little more widespread throughout NSW and smaller areas of South East Queensland. It is considered by some to be a sub species of Acacia Blakei. Enter.. Acacia Diphylla

SAY HELLO .. TO MY LIL FRIEND! ... Acacia Neurophylla .. a native to WA. Very photogenic species which I thoroughly enjoyed getting in awkward positions to honour.. (no kink of course) ... it really encompasses the "green and gold" in a uniquely vivid way.

A graceful little species which grows in the northern tablelands of NSW as well as a very small area of SE QLD. This wattle has a super cute and curious vibe.. say g'day to Acacia Venulosa... a close relative to the also stunning Acacia Lanigera (who you will soon meet in the coming posts)

This species is known as the 'poverty wattle' due to its abundance in poor soils. It is rich however in graceful beauty . Is a tiny little shrub that stands out like a glowing beacon when in bloom..It almost looks like a dancer that has been frozen in motion... found in east coast SE QLD, NSW and Victoria.. the newest member to the set.. Acacia 'Dancing' Dawsonii

Another gorgeous species, closely related to Acacia Longifolia, you have probably heard of this species at one point or another due to it's visionary properties. It is also however a gorgeous tree that carries a powerful presence and really stands out wherever it grows. It's leathery, and 'resiny' phyllodes have complex nerve networks that glow with the sunlight behind them like hyperspace itself. And its confident growth habit lends it a truly rugged beauty... say hi to Acacia Obtusifolia

Another favourite.. I am absolutely in love with the vibe of this species.. its phyllodes are gorgeous.. I needn't say much more - its elegance speaks for itself! From the southern area of Western Australia .. Acacia Urophylla

Bright, dense and furry yellow rods are the standout feature of Acacia Cheeli, as well as its tall majestic growth habit and pale blue foliage. Will be found nestling amongst the native cypress in the dry scrub. In bloom it is one of the more brilliant displays I have bore witness too.. the flowers are just this sort of hyper bright cheddar cheese yellow..

Thank you guys! Lots more to come Smile

Next up .. "Woolly Wattle" .. or Acacia Lanigera. Closely related to Acacia Venulosa from a few posts up. Gets its name because the phyllodes, seed pods and stems are covered in small hairs.. in botanical terms "glabrescent".

Super bad ass plant.. no more than 2 meters in height but the erect, sharp, spear-like phyllodes reach for the stars as if seething from the earth to the heavens. The look of Acacia Lanigera reminds me of hyperspace .. and the first photo below is perhaps my #1 favourite acacia shot I've gotten so far .. it just captures something magical and sentient about the plant. There is quite a masculine vibe about this Acacia.

Yeah she's a beauty.. was disappointing that it was so windy and rainy for most of the time it was flowering.. so didn't get any shots with fresh fuzzy fur balls like I was hoping. Been waiting a year for it to flower since I moved over to western Australia

Hey acacian!

I have really been enjoying your photos of acacias and took the liberty to use them as textures in some visual loops. its a market or whatever, but not marketing. its just one of the best places to host this kind of content to show people. Anyways I'm making a library and its going to feature photos of acacias as the textures for now Smile Mostly doing it because I love fractals, and also these acacias inspire me in a way, as well .

cheers https://gumroad.com/miusoph


Here's kind of an idea where I'm going with it Wink

Hey that's real cool Cube! I like it a lot.. the unpredictability of the acacia makes the fractal quite unique.. the colour scheme i that was works great with the track too. Thanks for taking the time on that!

Next Acacia loves rocks! Granite specifically.. has an incredible upwards "seething to the sky" kind of growth habit and is powerful to be in the presence of.. welcome, Acacia Granitica!
