Today I photographed some trees and some bark. The bark of the paper bark is intense and fascinating & has been used in artwork by the indigenous people. I was a bit experimental as the trees are too damn big to fit in my little camera 🙂
A selection (of the photos that worked!):
These 3 are of a ghost gum (I think) on the Mt Lawley ECU campus. It’s a young one so not very big, but still seems a giant in these photos, striding into the infinite blue of this unending summer.

The paperbark or cloud blossom – & the flowers & bark explain the 2 names. I don’t know which is correct – or if, indeed, either is correct 🙂
The bark of these trees is truly amazing & my photos don’t do it justice. I will have to try again, but I offer these anyway:
Only a short post – I have so much work to do. But I will definitely be taking more photos of more trees. They are amongst my favourite things, trees.
I hope you enjoyed these photos.
