Images of a Big Island

Ghost Gum

Well,finally the sunshine has returned and looks like it might stay for a while. The ground is soggy and the roads are a mess,hopefully everything will dry out and we can all enjoy some nice weather for a change!
Yesterday I went for a drive out to Lake Proserpine with the idea of getting a couple of shots of the water coming over the spillway. Couldn’t get near it because of fences and gates, so I went for a drive along one of the access roads to cattle properties that border the lake.
I came across this stand of eucalypts and I was taken by the shape of the big white one in the center of the image. Love the way it seems to glow against the surrounding forest.

Thankfully there is still a lot of this type of forest in the area. If we keep destroying forests worldwide, one of the best ways of removing carbon from the atmosphere and producing the oxygen that we all need will be lost!

  1. Hi Tim,

    Great shot and the middle tree certainly does stand out doesn’t? I just can’t get over the irony, you are rejoicing because you are getting some blue skies and today we are getting excited because some nasty weather is heading our way finally!

  2. Thanks Jamie. Yes, it is very ironic, hopefully we will get a dry winter and you get a wet one. Looks like you need it!

    • Cheers Dave, I’m usually not so good at photographing trees but this one seemed to fall into place!
