... with open eyes, and a generous heart, there is awe 'round many a corner ...
Gum tree! Lovely skin. Reminds me of a book by Julie ANdrews that I read to my third graders, "THe Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles". They were "up a gum tree" in one part!V
What a lovely photo. Love the detail and black and white. Thanks for sharing it!
Wonderful photo! I always like those trees with many twists and turns!
virginia, i love the julie andrews 'whangdoodle' comment!julie, this tree looks old and wise...if trees could talk!
Gone to Melbourne! Ye Gods! You must hate yourself!Nice tree, we have one just like it in the front yard. It drops a lot of bits over the year, I sometimes wish it was somewhere else.
Must have been a very good student of life.
I like that comment by Pat an Bruce ... I agree the best place for a gum tree is in someone else's yard or the bush. This has worked really well in B&W. I've get an interesting gum tree coming up on BMJ on Valentines Day.
Have fun in Melbourne! I hope you'll share your photos with us when you return....
That is a neat tree Julie. Nice shot. I can't wait until you get in really close and study the peeling bark in B&W. Imagine the fun you'll have contrasting the bark with the smooth, the light with the dark, the shapes...
Nice shot, I like all the tones and textures.
I love the shapes and the strong contrast.
It is very Brit to say 'up a gum tree'! I did not know that Julie Andrews wrote books. Anyway, interesting capture of a tree that has peculiar bark peeling habits.
What a great shaggy beast of a tree! I didn't see you in Mr Linky, you came in after me.
Great gnarled, weathered tree. Works well in black and white.
It looks fantastic in black and white.
Ah, the lovely bones.
Yes, not many would express it like that, Karen. I have many shots of this tree, always trying to get to the core of its beauty. The early morning light was a joy.
