I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    Great work in B&W Michael … this treatment suits the ancient nature of the tree but I do love the colour version … but then I’m a colour person. You wonder how many of these trees were once in this spot and how the landscape once may have looked♥

  • Thanks Bev. Yes, it is sad to see the old dead trees dotted around the countryside. But then again, I suppose it is all part of the nature cycle.
