I have just today printed an A3+ version of this image out and framed it … I am so proud of this one as I seem to have achieved what I have been long striving for … to get that 3D affect in an image

I love Australia’s native forests and am always fascinated by the different gums we have in this country. The Karri tree can be found in the Gloucester National Park just outside Pemberton in Western Australia. We visited the park specifically to see the Gloucester Tree that is 60 metres tall and has a pegged step ladder leading to a platform at the very top. I will never know what the view from the top is like as my short legs only managed six steps before common sense told me to return to terra firma. I have admiration for anyone who is fool hardy enough to climb to the top and back down again. From the foot of this tree are a few walks through the smaller trees of the forest floor and on this path I found this beauty, much smaller than the star of the forest but no less majestic in its command of its shared domain.
