Gum on Edge of Agnes Falls Gorge by Bette Devine

Gum on Edge of Agnes Falls Gorge by 

The Agnes Falls are a short drive north of Toora in South Gippsland, Victoria.
They are very high and have cut a steep-sided gorge. This beautiful gum grows on the edge. I was lucky that day with the light which bounced off the rock through which the tree grows.

Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    I thought this photo looked familiar. I have a shot from the same position from when I visited a mate in the Gippsland about 3 yrs ago. Nice shot Bette.

  • Thanks,Michael.
