Against All Odds

Location:
In the Pilbara region, about 50 miles north of Newman on the Great Northern Highway, Western Australia


I  saw an ironstone escarpment about a quarter of a mile to the left of  highway 138 heading south and pulled over to take a closer look

After walking up to it I saw this flower growing with vigour and determination out of the rock

It seemed blissfully unaware of the incredible odds of a seed taking root in such a harsh and foreign environment

It grew there showing its beautiful white petals to the world framed by a natural recess in the escarpment

A lesson in determination...thriving against all odds
