I've always thought rather fondly of Eric Banksia, ever since my first bushwalking trips into the Blue Mountains. The flowers are so majestic and incandescently golden. So, when my wife and I were away for a long weekend at Blackheath, and the place we stayed had several magnificent specimens, all I had to do was wait for some lovely late afternoon light, and, as they say, Bob's your uncle.
