My name is Emmy Silvius and I currently live in a beautiful little town just on the outskirts of Warrnambool (south west Victoria).
I absolutely love the Australian natural landscape with its amazing array of fauna and flora and always feel uplifted and energised when able to immerse myself in the midst of it.
Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than to be able to share my passion by bringing joy, peace and a realisation of the inspiring beauty that surrounds us to all who experience my work.
Our lives are often filled with lots of noise and activity. Imagine being able to divert your gaze to a piece of art that evokes contemplation and provides respite for as long as you desire. If any of my images can achieve this for you then my goal will have been accomplished. Click to read my Artist Statement.

Emmy’s book ‘Nature Inspired Reflections’ is a collection of beautiful photographs of the Australian landscape and nature accompanied by inspirational quotes.
Emmy Silvius is an accomplished photographer with a passionate interest in the environment and all it offers us. She manages to capture exquisite moments where landscape and nature meet and embrace. With the added reflective quote on each page, this book becomes ideal for everyone especially those who are not able to seek such surrounds, ponder and listen to the birds and observe the animals in their native habitat. I think of busy people who find it hard to take time out, I think of elderly people, particularly those confined to their homes. Nature Inspired Reflections encourages readers to take time to reflect and to appreciate that ‘nature in all its glory is what keeps us grounded and alert to what is really important in life.’ (Emmy Silvius).
I recommend this book for personal use or as a gift for a friend. It offers all of us a chance to see how fortunate we are to live in Australia and be surrounded by beauty, and with beauty comes a quiet and restful peace.

Over the years many of us have enjoyed Emmy Silvius’ beautiful calendars displaying her photographic prowess. Now she has offered us Nature Inspired Reflections, a more permanent collection of her art. This hard covered book of 24 pages is 20 x 20 cm and can be laid open at any desired page. It would make an ideal gift as well as a desirable addition to one’s coffee table.
Every page contains a stunning photograph the beauty of which no words can express. From sunrise to sunset, from brilliant nature scenes, to elegant birds swooping, protecting one another to their making love: every mood is offered for our contemplation. In addition, each photograph is accompanied by a one-line thought to capture our attention, enrich, soothe and challenge us, such as Only love can be divided endlessly without diminishing; and We waste the present when we live in the past.

A pair of resident New Holland Honeyeaters had built a nest in one of my Bottlebrush trees. I only became aware of this when two gorgeous fledglings emerged keen to explore the big wide world of my backyard. Both parents were kept busy keeping an eye on them whilst hunting for food to feed these two hungry mouths.

Click here to view a video of grooming Fairy Wrens. These adorable creatures seemed uninhibited by my presence as I took photos of them. Later I uploaded these photos in low resolution to PowerPoint and then saved them as a video to make it easier
to share. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I did at the time.
